Will running the front diff in the low position generate more front end steering/responsiveness?
Our arms are still shorter than all current TC's that are out, put on one of the team drivers setups with no changes and see how the car feels. I drove the haynes setup on a parking lot track and it was still dialed even with lesser grip. Lose the JR link if you are still using it, it kills the cars camber gain.

Iím little lost with anti and pro squat.
If I want to put anti squat in the rear of the car I would put shims in front of the rear arms under the hinge pin mounts. Correct?
i know this is a dumb question.

when setting my rear ride height, I've noticed this on all my Type R cars:

The rear left corner is always about 1mm lower than the right rear!!

I'm running a novak 10.5 SS PRO on it, and have the speedo on the right side of chassis, and receiver on the left. It's balanced out perfect side to side and fore and aft, but the car seems to always be a bit more "dipped" on the left rear side and than the right rear side, and its anoying to set ride height with this little "bias"...droop is also affected by this of course...so it's something I need to figure out...what is causing this? Anyone notice the same pblm?

Could it be the weight of the BL motor...the motor is not exactly on center of the chassis, and its offset a bit more to the rear left side, which could cause it to dip more on that side? Any things to look for or tips would be helpful
I had the same problem with mine but only .5mm. Here is what i did to fix it.
I am gonna assume you triple checked everything else and it is ok.

loosen the 2 screws that hold the shock tower into the rear diff. Loosen the 4 screws that hold the diffs in place. Push down on the tower and tighen the screws on the diff in a X pattern. Then tighten the shock tower down again.
Problem fixed for me. I also did this for the front. Hope it works for you...

Don't forget to add weight to the reciever side. I have 28g on the right side.
That is the differance between my reciever and speedo.
