Default wos steering block

Hi Paolo,
Hi Guys,

Serpent has now a new Wos steerinblock. I thing this the same modification which Paolo did for more steering. www.serpent.com/product/903234/
I have 2 questions.

1) If I use the new blocks with the new smaller bearings and eccenters. Should I mount the blocks upside down( letf to right etc) or normal !

2) With eccenters in the block, the axle will not be in the centered anymore. But which one is the right one. Axel closer to upper or lower side of the steering block. As you see there is 2 notch on the steeringblock!

I just tried the WOS on opposite sides, but also tried the rear shocks off the bulkhead and I had massive understeer. I assume running the rear shocks on the bulkhead probably gave me heaps of rear grip and created the front push. We got rained off, so couldn't muck with setup as I spent most of my time before the rain trying to sort my clutch out.

Sanwa/Airtronics/JR/KO = 23
Hitec = 24
Futaba = 25

What will happen if you use the WOS blocks in the normal position? Left on the left and right on the right?

Would anyone know if the bodymount arms from the 960 would fit on a 950? The bodymount itself fits, but it looks like the 950 arms themselves are either too short or need to be clearanced a bit for them to work.
