It has more to do with the distance from the lower to the upper arm and where the axle is placed in between those 2 points as to how your car drives.

I believe the way mine is setup if you put the chassis flat on a setup board. It should be 18mm to the top of the axle.

How would you describe the handling when moving the axle between these 2 points with all else being equal? Box stock, there are 4mm of shims between the 2 arms with all of those shims being ontop of the steering arm. What's the effect of keeping the number of shims the same, but moving their placement, e.g. 2mm above and 2mm below the steering arm.

Watched Ej Evans drive that car. It is so dialed.
Probably one of the best, and least noted WGT cars currently on the market

Talk to OD for the setup.

Yep, OD and Ashby have the Top WGT and they do handle well. Too bad they have that big red bulls eye one their cars. Some guy named peppy at Norcal Hobbies hits one of them every time. haha

If you mean durability they hold up just fine. These cars carry so much corner speed they are awsome to watch.
