The thing is it will always be weird in theorie.

wether the motor will go along with the wheels or against,

what make's what happen you'd need some diagram too see.

or as i said, lets just try it and not worry.

note i used these

all in all, i'm just saying one shouldn't overthink this stuff.

I understand people wanting to know "why" something is the way it is, but really it all matters which one is faster for you.

Their is a reason why lots of engineers usually aren't the fastest or greatest race car drivers. I say "screw" what physics says and go by what's faster on the track for you. I don't care if physics says something should be faster for me. If it is not faster for me on the track I'm not running it.

Fellas... bench racing / discussions, like the one we are having here doesn't take the place of on-track testing to figure out which one works best for you. We can do BOTH.... Why? because I can always meek out a few minutes to post questions and answers, but I can't get to track till the weekened. Some of you seem to think that just because we want to discuss the physics behind how some of these things work, we don't actually try it out on the track..

couldn't be further from the truth.

Exactly- gives me a temporary fix as I anticipate the next practice/race day. My wife is baffled by how I can spend 16 hours at the track on a Saturday and want to go back the next day...

I had a feeling it was. Though swapping tyres with the DEX410 will be nice!

So this car comes with all of the rear toe options out of the box, but is rear toe only adjustable at the hubs? As most of you know inboard toe in changes the car differently than outer toe. I really like that there are so many toe options out of the box, but I think that inboard toe should be an option too. I know that it would cost way too much to include all of the option blocks in the kit, but will Durango produce different rear toe blocks as option parts? Purhaps a block combo (FR RR) that would have pivoting balls in the front block, and an insert system in the back to adjust inboard toe. I am surprised it has taken a manufacturer this long to come out with a set of hubs with inserts that change toe. I am going to school to be a Mechanical Engineer, and I was planning to make a set of hubs with inserts that change toe when I have my CAD/CNC class. I have had this idea for over a year now, I just didn't have the means to build the parts. I guess when I get my DEX210 I won't have to. Kuddos to the smart dudes over at Durango.

There are other blocks to swap out.

Looking at those pics it appears they are for antisquat adjustment, not width

Guarantee that there will be a way to change inboard toe as well... but out of the two, outboard toe is a better change to make if only changing the toe amount is your goal, as inboard toe also changes your wheelbase. If I had to pick only one or the other, I would choose outboard.

I haven't seen that posted yet. You could pop the steel balls out and swap them with the ceramics.
