thanks for the entire boards input on my ???'s

With the "C" block(higher RC) you get less chassis roll but you can use softer rear springs/oil than you would with the "B" or "A" blocks to get the chassis to roll more for traction. The "A" block(low RC) allows more chassis roll(thus more traction) but you would need stiffer springs/oil to prevent the chassis from rolling too much and too fast. Either way you could make all the blocks work for low traction conditions.

Our tight track gets really hot(130-140 degrees) so traction is at a minimum with our rubber tire class. I tried using the "C" block with all sorts of springs and camber link positions but I couldnt get the rear to hook up. I ended up using the "B" block and got better results.

So, to me it actually depends what type of track you run on and your driving style to determine which block works best. It's best you try all blocks to see which works best with your track and driving style

If you don't change rear spring and damper oil :

Rear A block give you the most rear traction but more body roll during cornering. Suitable for sweeper / high speed corner.

Rear C block give you little bit less of rear traction but less body roll. Suitable for tecnical circuit, medium to low speed corners.

I ended up with B block too as the best of both worlds.

i will definately give the B block a chance then, i have a technical infield and if i cant stick it in the corners i loose alot of time.

thanks

just remember, 80% of setup is tires. you may have the geometry and all the setup nailed down, but if you don't have the right tires, you're screwed and will have a hard time driving the car.

If they arent snug then the shoes will rotate on the center and jam the 2 speed.

I don't use the ball anymore for 2 speed. Instead I use longer screws (8mm) and directly tighten all the way down. The shift is awesome.... great punch. The ball setup allows you shifting much softer but sometimes the balls get jammed and ruined the clutch.
THANK YOU guys..1st it like Scott were saying bout d assembly,well it looks like s wat u said,well mybe its a bit loose when I assembled..but d 8mm set screw u mean sound bit horror to me.. anyway u were and still into it right?how d wear and tear for the center portion?coz it is supose to get to certain rpm then d shoe engaged to d spur housing rite?can last for A runs?
well actually I tried different way,maybe som of u tried b4 or currently using 1..i used a 4mm ball wic i v to drill bigger bit ofcoz d shoe to fit in..shifting part sounds like ASW said,bit hard but d shoe holder is hardly gets d scratch like d 8mm does?did u make d screw en d at d holder round shape or just leave it like that?

it's nice to use one brand so you get the consistency of shores. a 40 shore of x brand may be softer than the 40 shore of y brand or vice versa. but tires are very important. some people get so lost in setup and when you ask them, what tires are they using, they say 45's when they are supposed to use 37's for instance.
