cut the tire along the inside bead, pull out the old foams, put in new foams and reglue the inside bead.

Changing toe in at the brace also alters the wheelbase and diveshaft angle because you are twisting the arms backwards or forward. At the hub you are only changing the toe. Hth

I agree with you there. Performance wise, is there a difference?

Look like aka chain links all around, how do you like the fronts. Currently running pin stripes in clay or super soft depending on track condition.

it depends on what you want. taper down for faster rebound or taper up for faster compression. its not a huge difference on a smooth track but im sure you'd notice it more on a bumpy track.

In 17.5 the gearing is 72 / 32. What would a good starting 13.5 gear be for you guys running super stock.

they're a good front tire pretty balanced all around. good steering but not too aggressive. i've found that the pinstripes can be a little on the aggressive side and the chainlinks kinda smooth out the steering and they're super consistent.

If you increase toe inboard you will shorten the wheelbase, so you'll also gain more rear traction from effectively moving weight back. You will lose on power steering though. The opposite is reverse. Changing toe at the hub makes a smaller difference

I will try that, thanks. Do you do something different in how you glue on the inside? Thanks for your help Wildcat.

This last weekend, I switched pistons up front, going from 2x1.7 to 3x1.4 flat, and didnt notice a whole lot of difference... Im running on a clay mix track that is super smooth with only two jumps, and am finally coming around to quicker times.. However, Im just not getting that "edge" while driving through the infield. I think this may have some to do with the camber gain and link positions. I am looking for the simple fixes that I can do with keeping as close to box stock as possible.. Or even just using option tuning parts that are included with the box setup.

Thanks

Also, attached is my current setup.

If you want more responsive steering in the infield of a track, reduce the amount of washers under the front camber link ball stud. Going down to 1mm.
