Anyone tried the 15 degree caster blocks? Kinda confused about the degree number, so 15 degree is more vertical? For more off power steering?

I want ask the same, in which conditions the 15 degree caster blocks must be used. And how about HB RACING STEERING BLOCK SET (4 DEG), when it must be used?

The 15deg is more vertical and in theory can be used for more off power steering and steering into the corner, but this assumes that your front wheels don't slip.

I find the 17.5 degrees (stock) provide better steering than 15 deg, and in some conditions the 20 degrees are better still. When the traction is good, 17.5 degrees provides great steering. If the traction is low or the car steers too quickly, I find the 20 degrees are better.

I go back and forth between 17.5 and 20 degrees. The difference is substantial, but unfortunately an expensive price to pay for the tuning option.

we ran the 15 degree caster with the 4 degree spindles at the worlds. It gives more mid corner steering. it is also better in the bumps.

Hi Chad I just ordered the 15 degree caster blocks from ur site. Thanks for having them in s stock.

I currently have the 3.5 D block and am thinking about switching back to the 3.0 to help free up the rear end.

3.5 is too much. i never run that much. i run 3.0 on med to loose track and 2.75 on high bite.
