Can someone please explain the different effect of rear toe at the hubs versus rear toe at the inner pivot pins.
Which is best?
A Combination?

Thanks
Skiddins

Using outboard rear toe allows the car to rotate better and carry more cornerspeed through the turns since there is less of an angle on the arms and the pins.

having the front shocks inclined more than the rear should give you a little more mid-corner steering

So you guys that have or have tested the 2.5mm chassis-

I have one and wondered if it's worth trying on med. to high-bite asphalt? I do want one of those 2.5mm kits too, where can I find 'em?

You could also try kick up in the front. Do you have the pivot blocks all the way to the riser plate in the front? If not do that first. If so, add a .5mm shim under the forward front blocks. This should give more mid corner steering but it may take away some turn in.
