Are you inquiring about pod droop?
Pod droop is how far the rear pod hangs below the main chassis when the chassis is off the ground (ie you holding it up and looknig at it). It is adjusted by loosening or tightening the the center shock ball ends. When the center shock is longer, the pod hangs lower, more pod droop. Conversely, when the center shock is shorter, the pod doesn't hang as low, less pod droop.
Pod droop effects, pirmarily, the cars characteristics off power. The more pod droop, the more the car will transfer weight forward when you lift. Although it creates more on power steering it also tends to make the car a little mellower (more steering but less abrupt) as increased pod droop smoothly transfers the weight forward vs being abruptly interrupted by the center shock reaching its length limit.
Hope that helps.
Just to clarify on the links and end links. The link length is not a tuning option. The links are either right or wrong. Links can only be checked with the motor out of the car (and battery) and preferably with the side springs removed. If the links are correct, when you twist the pod on the pivot ball there should be even resistance throughout the pod's range of lateral motion. No high spots, no binding points etc. If there are, adjust links to compensate and try again.
The link ends are meant to pivot freely, but be firmly attached as to not detach in the event of an impact. The kit includes a small o-ring which is to be placed in the split in the link end with the screw passing through it. This prevents the link ends from becoming excessvely closed and binding on the pivot balls. They, like the links, are right or wrong and not a tuning aid.
