Aha! You meant the hub carrier when you mentioned track width several pages back. I had forgotten that it has two options for track width now in the RB6. I thought you were talking about the different widths of suspension mounts (which some call the caster block).

OK - now I get it.

I've read the first post but i'm still confused about the rear suspension hangers. I'm running rear motor and broke the stock RF hanger and replaced it with the mid motor RF2. Was the original one a RF or RF2 ? The back hanger(RR) doesnt have any markings on it. So by my thinking if the back is a (RR) and im running a RR2 in front I have little or no rear toe in HELP !!!!

Technically it raises and lowers your front roll center, at the lower control arm position. No spacer for less roll/steering, larger spacer for more roll/steering. See if you can even tell a difference.
I tested this on the rb5wc. Thicker shim gives more mid/late corner steering. I didn't like the feeling. I thought the front end took to long to settle in the corner. Car became inconsistent.

On another note I ran the Cody turner setup from petit and it was very good. Better then the Japan setup imo.

The kit setup is RF2. Use the one packaged with the mid motor part not the one on the tree with the Tplate as it will break.

For the rear rear hanger use the wide one from the tree with the RF2.

So are the castor blocks are part (111)UM715? I think the manual calls them a hub bush hence my confusion.

The setup sheet calls the rf2 the wide hangers. Is that a mistake? There are a number of spelling errors on the sheet.

No worries. Up until yesterday I thought the rf2 were the narrow hangers.

Ok so you run RF2 & RR2 for a wide track and RF & RR for a narrow track correct ?
I just put on the aluminum RF & RR and I can see that I have toe in now,
I think i had the RR on when I put the RF2 on, Might explain why I had no traction on a dry track
