    Hi John, I was wondering where you measure your droop from, do you lift the chassis and measure how far the chassis lift up or measure from fixed points on the wish bones?

    also when you changed from plastic to alloy C hub did you use a spacer on the bottom king pin bolt, as the alloy hub is thinner at the bottom of the hub than the the plastic c hub and you cant tighten the bolt up without binding the steering knuckle.

    when you build the car with the plastic hubs you get three 0.5mm spacers that are fitted between the the C hub and the steering knuckle, one is fitted on the top of the knuckle and two are fitted underneath. i have fitted the top 0.5mm spacer and have fitted 0.5mm x 5mm spacer on the bottom king bolt between the shoulder of the bolt and the bottom of the c hub.

    did you have is problem and would you say this is the correct way/ or what did you do?

    hope to see you racing at Ipswich

    hi john, when running the duraluminium c-hubs what size spacer do you use on the bottom king pin bolt.?

    the kit plastic hubs are thicker at the bottom but when using the duraluminium hubs the thread is to long by about 3mm, i have tried to look for a corally part for this but to no luck.

    regards matt
