I'm curious about switching the shims in the hubs around myself and wondering if it will make the rear end of the car follow through with the front any better.

I would think that set-up adding 2mm to the wheelbase would make the car less aggressive and transfer its weight front to back a tad slower which is great for a larger sweeping track and keeping smoother but for short track with lots of hairpin turns 2mm shorter wheelbase should be better as it should be quicker on turn-in and get its weight transfer to the back end faster also.In theory it would be anyways.

Everyone should be thankful that the reedy isn't this weekend. It's showing a high of 101 The jaco's in mod at those temps would be hurting no matter if you're Hara or not

Did you ever compare the difference on the wheel base changed between either arms or hubs?

No, I have only been running the HB car for 3 months. I was given 3 setups sheets one from Hiro,another from Sean W., and Scott B gave me Hara's. All three setups are very close and they all work very well.
