Anyone try the 3.0/4.0 arms, spindles and castor blocks on the front of this car? wonder if they would bolt up. Would be a nice suspension option.

All the years of running the 8ight platform never broke a front arm, spindle or castor block. Seems more durable than the X setup.

Im in the middle of my build right now and was curious to see if anyone has tried to use a King Headz extended quick change engine mount on the X? I have one on my 4.0 and was wondering if if will fit on the new chassis or if I should leave it on the 4.0 for my son and just buy the new quick change mount that was released for the X.

I am running 1 degree of toe out and 1 degree of front camber on my buggy,

The inside measurement is 27mm for Camber. This is the measurement on the inside of the camber ends on turnbuckle
The inside measurement is 32.98mm for Toe in. This is also the measurement on the inside of the Steering Ends.

I am running the 20 degree castor blocks with the Aluminum Spindle carriers using the outside upper hole on spindle carrier and lower inside hole on shock tower.

Hope that helps!!!! Really like the new car!!!!!

Considering the fact that it's a rolling change with the same part #, I'd assume they will eventually. Horizon & Amain both show the wrong shock tower if you look up the part #.
