Adding castor using RC10 Block Carriers

Post by snowfox »

Hi,

I want to add 10 degress of castor to my King Cab using the RC10 Block carriers.

My understanding is i would need to buy the 20 degree castor blocks as these would be -10 degrees as the stock kickup on the RC10 was 30 degrees? I would then flip them and run in revers on the king cab. Is this correct?

E.g So RC10 30 degrees block carriers are actually 0 degrees as they do not add or take away fromt he stock 30 degree kick up of the RC10?

30 = 0' on the carrier
20 = -10'
10 = -20'
5 = -25'
Give it Gas!

The logic stands :)

yes that's correct how you are thinking. One note, you will have to grind out a section of the c-hub, there is a thicker part on the front side that will now be on the back side and interfere with the spindle travel. depending on how much throw you need, you can notch out the bare minimum to preserve strength.
