What handling effect happens if I move my rear shocks in on the tower. Right now they are in the second hole from out to in on both the tower and the Arm.

Laying them down will make the rear end softer initially but more progressive. The back will feel a little more sluggish and have more grip. If the back of the car feels too twitchy, laying them down one should help smooth it out.

Thanks Jon. What I'm trying to do is use shock angle to freeup the rear just a HAIR

Just like Kevin said, Schumacher USA is located in Tampa, Fl. Also, you can try Fast track hobbies which is located in Longwood,Fl. I know you said you are in FTL, but they send next day since it is in FL, and they have all the Schumacher parts you need.

We have been driving on a high grip, small track course. I felt that my back was coming in all these tight corners - so i moved the back dampers one in.

The result was - incredible. Still the same grip in the front of the car, lots of roll in the corners, and a very stable "heck" ( back)", very predictable and easy to drive.

I think moving the back dampers from the upper second hole to the third could be my personal standard setup from now on.

As i have said a lot easier to drive and for me, quicker too.

South Florida is Nitro Land. Mostly Bashers and Nitro Sedan or 1/8th.

MDI racing in Royal Palm on Southern Ave is a good all around electric and nitro race shop though. They have Schu parts and racing gear like batts, speedos, etc.

Anytime. If you want to free up the rear using shock angle, run the outside hole on the top and second to outside on the bottom, then adjust from there. I always liked running my shocks more upright. Gives the car a more direct, snappy feel. But one of the first things I do if I need a little extra bite in the rear is lay the shocks down one hole.

Don't get on here much, but as far as free-ing up the rear of the car goes...
Try:

1. adding a little pressure to the rear shocks,
2. softening the rear spring (like 2 #), while moving the rear arms back 1mm
3. For more extreme cases, run the outer hole on the arm with the stock hole on top.
This info assumes your to-stuck-rear comes from excessive rear bight and not lack of front...
