i have also found that layed down shocks will give you more weight transfer, but i have found that the further you lay them down the more the weight transfer becomes side to side transfer(side bite) rather than a forward-back transfer.

so that would help on a tight track, when your turning more often. I read in the setup sheets, rear toe, is that just from the pivot selction? Still wonderin bout that spool thing.

if what your asking is how to adjust the rear toe, you cannot adjust rear toe from the rear pivot blocks. you change toe from installing differnet rear hubs 0, 1/2, and 1 degree selections. you can also flip them to opposite sides to take away that amount of toe per side.

pro3racer, the 1/2 degree toe in hubs for the rear are most often used on low bite surfaces, if your track is high bite you may not need them. On high bite tracks the extra toe in scrubs off or slows you down on your straight away speed. I run them a lot because we run on a concrete surface that doesn't have a a lot of traction.

Todd - Thanks a lot. That was a great explanation. Do you have any input on when to run the steering rack in the forward position or forward flipped instead of in the back position?

racer-oZ- when racing on high bite surfaces like carpet you can swap those hubs around (L on right, R on left) to give less toe..... you would do this on Carpet and alot of asphalt tracks around here. This will free-up the rear end.

Default question

on the rear arms of the g+ there are two mounting holes for the rear hub. If I use the outer hole the cvd is almost outside the outdrive, and using the inner hole makes the cvd in perfect position inside the outdrive.

question is:
if I use the outer hole to mount the rear hub, is the cvd prone to popping out?

and

fixing my electronics in the car, are there no balance problems in this car, since all my electronics are small?

Slow down there.... the outer holes are for different hubs, you CANNOT use those hubs in the outer hole....

That's one main change of the XXX's to the G+, the inner holes uses the new offset rear hubs for the G+... this is to make the rear rotate more on high bite surfaces with foam tires...

i use the 1 degree standard hubs in the rear

i don't think so... and you can always tweak the car.

Default Got it now

the other arm has 2 holes for the rear hub and the other has 1,
i guess it was installed that way to make it look normal.
need new rear arms to make the cvd fit right into the outdrive.

the new graphite rear arms of the G+ XXX's really have two holes, what you need are the standard rear hubs if you will mount them on the outer holes or the offset hubs if you will mount them in the inner holes...

the prevous owner of your kit must have used different arms ... get the standard rear hubs...
