Looking at the docs online I assume you're talking about the retaining screw for the hinge pin?

Yeah no screws into the hinge pins. I never liked them. So I never ran them. Haha

Cool, ta, prolly less friction that way too, I assume the pins can't escape without the screws.

Yeah, Its hard to get the screws in the arms set up good with out binding in my opinion

Plus I ran all the titanium pins, and they dont even have holes for a screw

Ohh stock rear toe is 3 deg, you dont need that much at all. I usually run 1.5 or 2 deg of toe. Run the swaybars also! Springs sound alright. Run stiffer oil in the front, I run 35/40 or 40/45. And you can also shim the rear hubs forward for a shorter wheel base. All those things will free your car up and give you alot more steering.

Do you use the kit blocks (plastic) even when changing rear toe angles? If so, have you noticed any binding?

And what spacers (type and thickness) are you using to adjust rear toe?


The alu rear hubs are good, they will give you more rotation because they have toe in them, if you get them make sure you change the toe at your arms to make up for the hubs




I havent broken any pivots either and I have had some nasty crashes, including one to snap my rear shock tower (not my fault either). But I dont run the screws in the pivot blocks either. My buddy had this issue this past weekend and he had the screws in his hinge pins. So we will see if no screws makes a difference
Thanks in advance....

yea I run the stock plastic pivots. I have some alu ones though.

They don't bind. And I use schuie grey shims. Either .25, .50, 1mm etc shims. Just throw it on the set up station and mess with it till it's where you want it. And make sure there isn't to many shims so the car is to wide or narrow.
