check to see if diff set screw is not in too far in

Hello all, in regards to the kick up blocks. I am almost certain this is how it works.
0 degree block is the most kick up. Option
.70 block D819
1.4 block. D817
2.8 block Option.

The more kick up a buggy has you will lose off power steering as you are creating more arm angle. I do understand the kick up basics but that's the way I am deciphering the blocks. That listing is from most kick to the least . I feel the new block is a good middle of the road setting.

I think you have it backwards, the 0 degree block has the least kick up, can someone confirm?

i believe original post guy has it right.

If the A block pills stay the same then the zero B block has more kick. The +2.8 would have the least or a more flat front end.

i was looking at the blocks last night and when I lined them up, it does appear the more dots, the less kickup. You guys might be right.

guys it is no doubt this way.

0 has the most
+2.8 has the least.

Here is why. The +2.8 means the B location of the hinge pins are moved up 2.8 mm. Therefore they are more flat or more parallel to the ground and or compared to the A pills. This is less kick up.

All, the kick up is not hard to figure out. This is on any vehicle ie HB,Kyosho, Losi, etc.

It is all about pin placement. The lower the hole is on the B block the more kick up you will be adding to the car. I have always run the 1.4 block on my D8v2. I have the 0 block but have never actually put it on. When the tracks get rough I would just go max kick on the pills in the A block and my car is great. Talking to some others on the team they have mentioned when it is rough that the 0 block is the way to go but it does make the steering a little numb.
Too me this would make sense that Hb came out with a .70 block, split the difference. Good bump handling while keeping the steering sharp.
