Default K2 v2 steering blocks and lipo options , transverse or inline ??

Ran my k2 yesterday (2nd time running a shuey ) at the Torch national , ran it in the inline set up , but a lot of the others run it in the std transverse set up .

What's people opinion on the inline setup
, I found it a bit twitchy etc , still pretty happy with the car but just didn't feel %100 at ease with it.

Also I ran the std blocks , but have a pair of the v2 blocks to try , any thoughts on these ?

Cheers

I ran inline and V2 blocks. I've never ran across the chassis nor v1 blocks so difficult to give an opinion.

I thought the car was good, but it was a bit dusty and struggling to get all the power down. Battery across the back may have helped.

Yardy and McGhee both ran inline and V2 blocks.

Cheers Allan , I was should had ask in the shuey tent (I was only pitting next door!) , was just curious to see what eveyone else thinks .

I know steve brown runs it transverse with lcg saddle lipos to get the weight low down . Cheers

I run inline shorty with v1 block as I do not have any v2 blocks. 10degree front and 7.5 alloy hubs and run this all the time and like it.

I am going to get my small bores out and try this setup this weekend as it seems very popular:-
