In general the car didn't steer as much as we would like. We changed alot of things throughout the evening that made the car steer more without making it hard to drive. Almost all of the guys running x-ray's and RDX's are running 6 degree castor blocks, of which we don't have at the moment, so I am going to try running some other plastic on the car.

What I was impressed with is how balanced and stable car was even after we made the changes. The last x-ray I had was an FK05, and I always felt like the setup sweet spot was very narrow, whereas on this car it seems to be much wider.

I'll post some setup info in the coming weeks, I'd like to get the car closer to the pace of Herrmann and Goetz before getting too excited. We have a club race next Saturday, I'll post my findings ASAP.

Default Buying a Stallion

Thinking of buying a Stallion. I have a SD TF-5, and so far its been great. However, I'd prefer the Stallion since I run modified, and love the simplicity and easy maintance and quietess of BD's. Now, can I use the front and rear arms, c-hubs, steering blocks, drive shafts/CVD's? If so it I'll take the ones from the TF-5 SD and save a lot of time building the Stallion.

Another question- is there red aluminum diff outdrives for the TF-5 SD?

I think the cvd's are the same. I will check for you later. Everything else on the car is the same, except for the drivetrain. Diff and thrust rings are the same

I did see some aluminum outdrives for the SD somewhere. I know the zx5 steel outdrives will work. I've never had a problem with the plastic ones, but I've only been running stock with the SD.

Customworks -

We are running some arm sweep in the front of the car, not that much though...

Do you have part numbers for those alum castor blocks?

Thx,

Do a search on ebay for tf-5, or tf5. They should come up.

Arrow 1 more thing

do not get the ZX5 Alloy Front Kunckle Set or the rear hubs they do not work
they are not offset so your CVD is too short I found out the hard way

Oh, I thought you said they did work, my bad.

Well back to the drawing board, I am going to use some other OEM's plastic on the car.

Stay tuned.
