My Pro-3 which has the 2 degree block in it, measures 1 degree PER side.

These are taken with a set of Integy alignment gauges, so accuracy is spot on.

Either way, I have always used the combined measurement when setting toe and 3 degrees (or 2.5) PER side is excessive, especially for an Electric Car.
Maybe your integy system are Warped?

Please stop guys!! You are killing me! If it aint broke, dont fix it.

Can we talk about setups or something? Has anybody tried the Reedy setup yet? Maybe with a oneway instead of a spool, swaping the sway bars since with the oneway you will have plenty of steering?

LOL, those are cells I won in a lucky draw during a race. I might use them as practice packs since GPs are da bomb. Incidently, I won a pack of GP shorties one week after that in another race... guess why they aren't in the photo

Yes I will be @ Fastlane. The spool is fresh off the lathe. Took about 2hours to make. Here it is before I was done. (actually my roommate cause I would have screwed it up somewhere)

Its basically a locked diff. You get excellent power out of corners without the braking penalty of using a one-way (back of car slides).

Really depends how much steering you want and your style of driving.

Mossie, a spool acts like a diff off power but like a oneway on power but more extreme in both instances. Some races require no oneways so the next best thing to run is a spool. The car will push slightly off power but you have full braking effect. On power the car will turn on a dime where a diff will push out mid to exit some. Hope that helps.
