They just need to add a 0 degree insert for the front caster to have 15, 20, 25, 30 & 35 total.

Yes more or less. When you use the front axle insert you must also make sure to move the caster blocks shims accordingly to prevent steering bind.

Yeah I get that and wheelbase was the wrong term to use in my original post. I know that moving from inline to trailing changes the ratio of weight over the front end a bit providing more front grip. My thing is on the setup sheets, does the box checked off signify the # millimeters trailing that is being used? I know its not rocket science and I'm sure I'm over complicating it a bit, just trying to make sure I'm reading the setups right so when I finally get a chance to hit the track I'm using a consistent baseline to learn from.

a couple of them popped up a day or so ago, I think those were the preordered/not picked up ones.

Had my first race night last night and the car is awesome! Randy, thanks for being such a big part of this thread. A lot of people have posted set ups, but (as far as I know), only one is a pro driver, so the Randy set up from page 81 was put on my car.
Let me say this...I am not a 2 wheel guy. I tried forever with a different car and was constantly frustrated. To avoid this, I ran lots of 4wd and stadium truck. Last night, however, I looked totally different. This car is so F'n good that I actually looked like I knew what I was doing. I out-qualified people that I normally can't touch in 2wd. The only two guys faster in qualifying were a national champ and an Associated regional manager! The car is that good. My 4 hole pistons are now done and will go on tonight which should dial it in even further. If you are considering a buggy, look no further. THIS CAR ROCKS!

I might become a 2 wheel guy!
