Are you noticing a difference in handling with the toe discrepency or uneven tire wear or heat? Maybe you can leave it even though it seems off, .2 is not that bad. I might try a shock o ring or other oring in the equasion and tighten until it is even, not sure about how well it will hold up in time though.
I would not want to give up the rear grip but there are adjustments you can do to compensate if you do add the 1 piece mount in the rear of the front.

This is more likley to do with the combination and inconsistency in the thicknesses of the shims and the plastic suspension holders being used. Differences of up to .05 mm is pretty common when checked with calipers and is responsible for the small variances in toe from side to side. With some effort and an assortment of shims, you can get it perfect.. I ve also touched up the suspension holders with abit of sand paper to ensure consistent thickness as these can vary slightly too... Hope it helps...

I find 1.75mm of shims on the left, and 1.5mm shims on the right gives equal toe in of 3 degrees. Not sure why.
Using the one peice holder at the front of the rear will reduce rear flex and traction
Cool. will try it later. thanks.

I currently run on a small/mid sized carpet track running 8.70fdr using a 13.5 boosted LRP x12! Do u still think 4.0fdr is a gd starting point or is that more for larger tracks?

yes i did sand suspension holders a bit, and decreased toe fron 2.5 to 2.8. But still need more will shim it a bit later and we will see the effect. thanks.

Updated:

used silver shim from kit, ~0.3mm and that problem is solved! Thanks to all.

Thanks

Yes 4.0 is a good starting point, on larger tracks we can run as low as 3.2, but generally 3.6-4.1 covers most medium sized tracks, and it depends on what motor, how much timing, and how hot that motor is getting. I run thunderpower motors with around 32dg of timing.

If you ever need to use a spur that blocks access to the rearmost motor screw, just set the mesh using the front motor screw, then remove the spur/layshaft, tighten the rear motor screw, then put the spur back in.

+1 for RW spur gears, they are OEM for Schumacher cars and do Xray spurs that you want
