A Block rear, less traction, B Block medium traction C Block more traction.
The steering rack in the front A Wheels turn more equaly, B wheels have slight amount of ackerman, C has the most ackerman the outside wheel turns less than the inside wheel they say that the C block will give you more turn in, but less on power steering, the oposit goes for the A block.

As for being since 1996 in this hobby, I assume that my gear meshing is preety good...
But last weekend I had lost aprox. 4 second gear(.8 module) spurs in one single day...

What I noticed was that the gear box seemed to shift harder than usually... Any comments?

About the rear Diff... I can't imagine myself using 50k oil or something near that... The harder I used was 15k and I had to be veeeeeeery smooth on the throttle... What's the matter with me ?
Double check your gear mesh by removing your first gear spur and physically inspect the second gear mesh. If that's not it... then there are a lot of other variables. Too much split in your gearing??? Drive train could be binding... and so on. BTW... the method you reveal in setting up your two speed works well in an 1/8th scale but it has a tendency to shift early in sedan unless you crank down on the adjustment screws. It actually makes it more inconsistant. I would revert back the stock setting.

15K is rather lite... if there is any side bite at all, the inside wheel will diff out and cause the car to step out on power... that's why you are having to massage the throttle. So relax...there is
nothing wrong with you. Try the 50k. works well even on medium traction.

One more thing I left out in my post to you yesterday regarding tweak. Check the car for flatness when installing the right radio tray brace. Some time the tightness in the fit will twist the chasiss causing a major tweak inspite of proper droop settings. I trim some material off both ends of this brace to prevent this. Good luck once again.

Seeya!

Default Shock/Damper Adjuster

Good morning all,

fish is very happy today. No, my wife's not expecting a baby. I'm just happy that it's Tuesday already...

Well, got nothing to do, as always, and thought to share the fun to all of you.

The picture shown below is to compare the difference between the Shock/Damper Adjuster from the Mugen stock and the hop up from SQUARE.

Let's hear all your comment re this.

cheers,

There gotta be reasons why they spent time making this out at first. If it ain't do anything, why would spend time on R/D and to have it as final product, marketing, etc.

I also wonder if it ain't gonna be better than those stock one, why bother making one.

getting very intersting, indeed...
