they have put the wrong wone in,you should have the short wone
that gauge plate is 29 cm long.
but i stil have a problem with to caster meseurment.

Sure thing Nils,

Im building my new Evolva kit with a Delta Radio Tray, I need to put my Delta XP4 to see how much the set-up changed.

In truth, I haven't even paid any attention to the caster portion of the Hudy gauges... In fact Im going to check mine right now...

I'll post the markings on mine shortly.......

Hi Nils,

This is the official response I got from Ralph Burch Jr and Mike Dumas of RCAmerica AKA Hudy USA.

1/8th scale on-road cars do not use more than 10 degrees of caster.

R.B. Jr 'The most caster I've ever used is 6 or seven degrees'
'Off road cars use more than 10 degrees of caster'

Nils, what is the caster setting you see when you put your car on the set-up blocks?

Nils,

If you need more steering switch to the short wheelbase first.
If you still need more steering try the 6.5 rear block.

BTW: I put my delta on the Hudy set-up blocks and it looks like I have about 12 degrees of caster.... whatever....

Hey guys,

Anyone know what shock oil comes with the MRX4 kit. I need to rebuild my front shocks but I don't know what oil to put in them.

Default New MRX-4 driver

I just got my kit, and I'm about to put it together. I plan on racing this weekend, and I was wondering if the base setup is a decent starting point.

I would also like to know which spares I should stock.

I was thinking belts, uprights, arms, steering blocks...upper links maybe? Any thoughts?
