What are the changes to how the car drives with hubs middle vs. hubs all the way forward on the mm?

Long is good for landings & high traction

Short good for traction

Is there any tips to improve this and also what do you guys think about the gearing? I run mainly at ierc.
Pick up a set of rm rear arms and mount them on the opposite sides. Move your rear hubs all the way forward. Go 1 step softer on rear spring. Add a washer under inner rear camber link. Depending on indoor or outdoor track check slipper setting and loosen for outdoors lower grip surface.

Try these all one at a time. The arms and moving the hubs usually work best for most and make sure you have tje right tires for your track. Maybe try soft or super softs. Ask around your track

Suggest

rear hub middle of arm

Green rear spring

Beware of using extra squat, only makes the car more difficult to drive into the turns...

Use O my advise

I got lucky on the mount love this car

not really surprising. I would be surprised if they were not approved next year though. It has been a while since the wheels have been updated. No need for roar to try and stop advancements. The lower sidewalls allow for less deflection on higher bite tracks. Unsure if it will be good for low bite tracks. I dont run roar races, so I really dont care about what they say. I just need to follow the rules of local events.
