I only ever use setup guages when the car has had a rebuild, otherwise I use a stock camber guage and droop/ride height tool.

My 3Racing chassis is well hooked up though.

I've never set it up. I just put it together and made sure all the pieces matched each other. Now I'm going for the throat at my races. I'll be top of the B by October I hope.

Does anyone know the part # of the spacers for the toe blocks that goes in the hinge pin?

Thanks in advance,
Mark

I have them on my TA05. I installed them when I was replacing the diff joint with aluminum ones. They work fine so far with no problems, but I did a few hopups at the same time so I don't know if it made a difference. The diff feels smoother with the aluminum diff joint and the new pulleys which has 9 balls bearings instead of 8 and the bearings snaps into the hole vs loose as stock pulley. The spaces between the teeth look really wide, but no skip or anything, all seems very smooth. There is also a ridge around the bearings, so I would assume it may keep more dust out. It is supposed to reduce friction.

You can get them for front diff or one way.

I have been using mine for a few weeks, both 19t asphalt/rubber and brushless/carpet/foams. They do seem to free the drivetrain a little more and have not skipped once. Pretty nice cheap hopup!

My plastic spacers are too thick. It restricts the rear arms from freely falling down on its own. I lost my spares that came with the kit. Thank you!!

I went to Tamiya today and picked up a few of the diff pulleys and the one-way pulley for when we run a spool. You know how Tim likes using the spool! Let you know how they work this weekend at "Bending Corners"!
