Suspension Block Settings By: Andrew Kuntze
When adjusting the setup of your kit to suit a particular track or driving condition, toe is an important tuning device. To make this adjustment easier, Tamiya utilizes suspension blocks of varying widths that can be mixed and matched to achieve the desired toe angle and track width on chassis such as the TRF416, TA05 and TB03.
Due to the variety of suspension blocks that are offered, it is possible to achieve the same toe settings with a variety of combinations of the suspension blocks. The table below shows all of the suspension block options, and the resulting toe settings that can be achieved where the "Outside" represents the suspension block furthest towards the front/rear of the chassis and the "Inside" represents the suspension block closest to the middle of the chassis.
When using a 1 degree rear hub carrier, the toe angle is decreased by 1 degree of toe-in. For example, if you are running -3.0 degrees of rear toe-in, by adding the 1 degree rear hub carriers, you will now have -4.0 degrees of toe-in.
�Please note that due to the length of the drive shafts will not allow every combination of blocks to be used on the chassis. In addition, if a race or event mandates a 190mm width be used, some of the combinations will not be legal as they will exceed that limit.�
