I’ve been neglecting my blog for a bit. Here’s a small update of what I’ve been up to.

It looks like TN is ready to sell the 3rd version of their DIB conversion. A short manual can be found here:

TN Racing DIB Conversion v3.0

Looks like TN Racing is planning to launch their v3.0 DIB conversion sometime in April for under $200. They’re only making a hundred so if you want one you should grab one quick.

I passed on the DIB monitor conversion kit but I’m pretty sure I’ll be getting the v3.

I see people throw around the words KPI and scrub when they talk about knuckles, but trail tends to get left out.

Front Lower Suspension Geometry

I saw a few TN drivers trying it out so I gave it a try. I reused the stock 3.5 RR block that I had lying around and put it in place of the stock FR block. It wasn’t a huge difference but I think it helped the fronts trace the ground more?

Seesaw Stays

I’ve been running the seesaw stays from TN Racing for a while now. They’re a bit pricey, but you can always find something similar such as TA05 seesaw stays.

TN Racing has a good blog post about it here. I won’t be including any pictures since his post has good ones you should reference.

So after throwing in the new Riku knuckles, I noticed the front end not gripping as well anymore. Since the car was hard to drive and I already had  TN upper arm pins, I wen’t ahead and mounted those onto my shock tower.

H2 Riku Knuckles

I’ve had my M’s knuckles for a few weeks now but I decided to switch over to TN Racing’s H2 Riku knuckles. They’re a bit pricey, but the knuckles come with stuff such as KPI and trail set to Riku’s specifications so I was curious to see how they feel.

Toe Zero + H2 Riku Rear Hub

08/11/2014 at 4:53 pm

Finally got stuff ready to get my rear toe to 0.  You’ll need DRB-31RR and DRB-31RF. Possibly shorter dogbones as well, since the toe blocks are a little bit more narrow compared to the stock 3.5. I went with Square’s 40mm, and changed out my rear hubs as well.
