Has anyone tried this new rear arm VZ004C? It looks different from the original arm.

It allows you do screw the ball in to the arm more, that's the only difference

What does the 2 degree front knuckles do for steering (VZ201-2)? And what part of the knuckle is changed from 0* to 2*?

The caster goes from 0 degree to 2 degree. It gives you more on power steering in exchange for less off power steering.

Guess I'll try them on the RRR as I find the steering a little nervous but that little more power on steering will greatly help through the infield sweeper.

I found it took away a bit too much turn in on the FW05, but was better out of the corners.

Thanks for the explanation. So if it gives you 2 degrees of caster, then what would the ideal caster setting with the caster clips? If I run 8 degrees of caster through the top arm spacing, would they new knuckles give me a total of 10?

Nimo, what would you suggest for camber and toe out with the 2* knuckles? Do you need to lessen the height of the steering linkage spacers to cope with bumpsteer? I'm just wondering if they're worth getting since I'm trying to get a bit more on power steering. Yet I'd like to keep off power steering as well. Is it possible? My track conditions seem pretty close to what you run on.

I suppose setting up a car is find the optimum "compromise". I am using the 2 degree knuckle and I prefer to have more on power steering on the FW since there is already plenty of off power steering to start with.

Let me teach you how to fish.

First thing to do is find out the IDR (internal drive ratio) which is easy on a shaft drive because it is the ring gear divided by the bevel gear. The ring gear is anywhere from 37T to 40T and the bevel gear is usually 13T if it is from Kyosho. So 39/13=3 and 37/13=2.846

First gear:

[spur] divided by the [pinion]= "A"
[51] / [21] = 2.42

The FDR(final drive ratio) is "A" x IDR which would come out to 6.91

Second gear is the same procedure instead you use the second gear pinion and spur.
