    B6 / B6D Carbon Steering Block Arms | Set

    The Avid B6 / B6D Carbon Fiber Steering Block Arms (Set) are made from 100% carbon fiber, offers Ackermann tuning options, and saves you a whopping 1g in weight! The set includes 3 pairs of arms: Kit geometry, +1 mid-increased Ackermann, and +2 max-increased Ackermann. This reduces scrub and allows the vehicle to rotate better in the middle of the corner. This rotation comes at the price of less steering at the exit of the corner. +1 is inbetween the kit geometry and our +2 to help you better tune your vehicle, it is suggested that you get our set of all 3 but we do sell them individually.
    Kit Steering Block Arms <---- Less - Middle Steering - More ----> +2 Steering Blocks
    It is recommended to sand the edges and seal the sides with super glue.
    When installing, do one screw at a time so that the part doesn't get pinched by the screw threads causing the carbon to split.
    100% Carbon Fiber, 2.5mm thick.
    +1 blocks marked by a single notch on side and +2 with two notches.
    A double notch on the side lets you know it is the +2.
    Steering Block Weights (2) (Kit: 2.4g | Carbon 1.3g)
    Includes (2) Carbon Steering Block Arms, (2) Carbon Steering Block Arms +1, (2) Carbon Steering Block Arms +2, (3) Doodad containers, (1) Mini-Decal

    We're excited to announce a host of new option parts for the FF210!
    First up are the LWB (Long wheelbase) Rear suspension arms and Rear suspension arm plates. These extend the wheelbase by 8mm to increase stability and calm the steering. The update works particularly well to increase performance on high grip and for flowing tracks. The rear suspension plate is also mounted with an extra screw to prevent tweak within the suspension arm assembly (that could for example be caused as result of an impact).

    Secondly are steering arms for the DEX210V3's Multi-Axle system. This upgrade enables the car to make a smaller turning radius, increasing the car's performance particularly on tight tracks (such as indoors).
    Last but not least, the introduction of aluminium filled sidepods. These sidepods are stiffer and thus reduce flex, increasing the response of the car and giving a more confidence-inspiring feel to the car. This part also increases stability in high grip conditions.
    All parts have been used with success at recent tests and were used to win the most recent round of the MAC Vlijmen Winterkampioenschap. Pre-order for the parts will be opened soon.

    Another brilliant event was held at the Schumacher Indoor Masters round 4 at Worksop this past weekend. 
    There were 14 heats of entries across the 2 classes of 2wd and 4wd buggy. Once again a huge entry for an event.
    This time the Worksop track crew had designed a very fast and flowing circuit, so lap times were going to be pretty quick!
    Doors opened at the venue at 7AM and there was a huge flow of people entering the sports arena. Many racers keen to get back racing at the venue as we hadn't been able to have an event here since November, this due to the Christmas Holidays. Many drivers had nice new shiny kit to use that they had received for Christmas presents.
    As always the qualifying format was round by round, with the best 2 results to count towards the final and grid position.
    It was Danny McGee on form in 4wd qualifying, just ahead of Jack Neal and James Helliwell.
    In 2wd it was very close between Neil Cragg and Danny McGee all day, with both drivers taking 2 round TQ's each, but Neil having the faster time which would see him line up on pole position. Adam Perei drove superb and would line up a brilliant 3rd on the grid.

    4wd A Final
    1 Danny McGee
    2 James Helliwell
    3 Jack Neal
    4 Billy Fletcher
    5 Craig Collinson

    Topdriver Tim Benson from Germany joins Team Serpent   We welcome Tim Benson to the expanding Serpent Team.   Tim will focus on racing the Project 4X car at major German events as well as ETS races.  He will also run the Natrix 748-Wc 1/10 scale nitro car at a selection of events !   This is what Tim has to say:  First of all I want to thank Kyosho for the last years. It has been a great time, but its time to move on.
      I was able to test the new Project 4x car and it felt great at the track.  With all the diffent setting possibilities it makes the car very interesting to work with, different but very easy ! 
    The feeling of the Project 4X car is very nice and made me change to Serpent.   Changing to Serpent also means a change of the Nitro 1/10 onroad car to the Natrix 784-WC which shows great performance at many races.  I am looking forward to the new saison 2017.

    Dakotah Phend, using the X Factory Infinity rear tower brace, has won the first two A mains here at the 30th annual C.R.C.R.C. MidWinter Championships.  In an unbelievable finish to A-1, Phend inherited the win 100 feet from the finish when race leader Jared Tebo hit a marshal who was working on a back-marker.  A-2 was a wire-to-wire win for Dakotah, with second-qualifier Tebo in hot pursuit looking for a way to pass almost until the end.

    The X Factory Infinity tower brace moves the rear shocks to the front of the arms.  In an interview, Dakotah said, “Moving the shocks forward helps smooth the car out through corner entry and exit, and helps it jump better.”  
    Dakotah also used the X Factory Infinity carbon fiber front tower.  X Factory congratulates Dakotah Phend on a great race win!

    • c'est un châssis d'occasion que j'ai eu et refait au propre (changé les poulies,changer tous les roulements par des Avid, changer toutes la visserie, changer le châssis carbon par un neuf, refait le diff arriere et refait l'huile des amortos). pour les pistons, je n'ai pas les 4 en 1.1 et 4 trous, je vais voir pour commander ca, et en ressort je vais repartir sur ceux d'origine, voir un 2.6 juste a l’arrière. pour le diff, faut que j'achete de l'huile aussi (je prend que de la hudy de toute facon). et je vais revenir au réglage de base indiqué dans le manuel de montage. Merci en tout cas de votre aide, j'ai une petite amical au club (A quincieux dans le rhone si certain connaissent),, je vous dirais si j'ai eu des effet bénéfique. le circuit pour ceux qui veulent voir le tracé (sinueux qui demande pas mal de directivité pour le coup) cirshttps://www.google.fr/maps/place/Circuit+Modelisme+Quincieux.+RC+Quincieux/@45.9178755,4.7744767,19.75z/data=!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x47f49101b22d26dd:0x408ab2ae4bb1f70!2s69650+Quincieux!3b1!8m2!3d45.914811!4d4.7786859!3m4!1s0x0:0x61f34e54f1c4349a!8m2!3d45.917725!4d4.7745788    
    • Salut, Je suis d'accord avec les deux précédentes réponses.  Ce sont vraiment des réglages très très étranges que vous utilisez là, ce n'est pas du tout équilibré. La T4 en version 2016 est une excellente auto, de plus très tolérante (j'ai longtemps roulé avec, avant de passer sur la version 2018), même avec des réglages approximatifs ou osés. Si le train arrière se dérobe, à 90% c'est le droop (environ 6 devant, entre 4 et 5 derrière, à voir) qui est faux. Autres hypothèses: pneus mal collés, platine supérieure affaiblie ou cassée, erreur de montage, châssis violemment tweaké, triangle et/ou amortisseur coincés... Solution radicale: démonter et remonter la suspension, remettre le châssis et le support moteur à plat, et remettre les réglages d'origine, qui sont sains et fonctionnent honorablement sur 99% des pistes. Le système PSS avec les amortisseurs de la 2016, doivent être remplis avec de la 550 XRay, et soit on monte les quatre, soit pas du tout. Avec les pistons quatre trous de 1.1, c'est de la 400 XRay. La viscosité est bien sûr à ajuster en fonction des conditions, mais pas dans des proportions dantesques. Je n'ai jamais vu quelqu'un utiliser les trois trous je crois.
      Ouverture 2° c'est trop, et le pincement arrière ce n'est pas assez (3° normalement, et 2.5° quand la piste le permet).
      5mm de garde au sol partout. 1mm de plongée, ça n'aide pas.
      Partir avec des 2.5 ou 2.6 en ressorts partout, et remettre les 2.5-2.7 devant si besoin de directivité.
      Le carrossage entre 1 et 2°, et l'huile de diff entre 2000 et 5000 suivant la piste. Des photos de l'auto permettraient de voir un éventuel problème. Cordialement,
    • Merci pour les retours oui c'est pour du bitume, un espèce de goudron qui grippe (c'est un circuit de petit club du coin, la piste est en plusieurs goudrons). sinon j'ai une bittydesign Ascari.  
    • Alors il y a plusieurs points que je reverrais: Le PSS pour moi c'est partout ou nulle part, j'enlèverais. Le PSS demande une huile de 50 plus épaisse que sans. 300 avec 3 trous, ça me semble un peu léger pour des Volante, je partirais sur de la 450 sans PSS, 3 trous. Les ressorts ca me semble bien Le pincement arrière peut être repassé à 2.5 ou 3, mais cela ralentira la voiture en courbe. Le carrossage peut facilement est être monté à 1.5 partout Inutile de mettre une garde au sol plongeante, 5mm c'est bien La striker n'est pas une carro qui aide, une boite à chaussures ferait pareil. Le diff pourrait être en 3000, mais 5000 ce n'est pas catastrophique Par contre je suis étonné de ne pas voir le réglage du droop (6 devant, 4.5 derrière) et surtout un paramètre souvent sous-estimé, le dual-rate. Lorsqu'il y a peu de grip, il faut réduire le débattement de la direction histoire de calmer les transferts de masses.
    • Réglages bitume ou moquette ? Reviens sur les pitons d'origine avec de la 450. Moquette : 2.7 av et 2.6 arr, bitume : 2.8 partout. Mets de la 3000 ds le diff.   Stéphane.
