Typically unequal length upper arms ( as shown in the attached picture ) is NOT used in favor of using shims under equal length upper arms ( see picture: 0mm and 2mm shims ). Both are ways to manipulate re-active caster but shimming is the preferred method.

In case you haven't seen , there are setup sheets here :

I meant different lengths at either end of the car. The idea of short in the front and long in the rear. Steering through the shorter front but having the stability of the longer links in the rear?

It was great to meet new racers and see all of the classes with Awesomatix cars in them. Thank you everyone. Should be a great season...
Congrats to Karl. In the tough field that shows up to the classic that was no easy Feat.

How many shims (if any) and on what side are you guys recommending for the metal gear set?
Cheers

Thanks for that.
So are you saying the two larger gears are metal and then run two plastic and two metal on the cross bridge. Are you running any shims?
Sorry for all the questions.
Cheers
Simon

With all metal gears i'm running 2 x 0.1 shims on each side under the bearing.
Hope this helps.
Cheers

when running metal gears -- I don't bother to shim. the metal gears work good enough w/o shimming and don't require the exact shimming that the plastic gears need in order to survive.

i've never tried mixing metal/plastic. i mostly run stock -- and i like the confidence the metal gears give me. just one less thing to focus on.

running just two of four gears helps yield a smoother feel with the metal gears. over course you must put thicker fluid in. to me -- 2 gears w/ 5K feels heavier than 4 gears w/ 2K, but lighter than 4 gears w/ 3K
