Yeah, the manual lacks a rear toe insert chart.

Is there anywhere that explains how and what inserts in the suspension mounts mean??? For example I'm not sure what would give me 2.5" rear toe or how to put front arm sweep on it
I don't know what all the inserts represent on the car

I have made the Change from Associated to the DETC410. My kit will come in Wed or Thurs and I will have it at the track this weekend for it's first showing. I am excited as I have not seen one here in Florida, USA before Elliot Harper's at the Pre-Worlds.

HA HA
I've worked out the insert thing
I don't actually know the angles or degrees but I now know how to change to 2' or 2.5' rear toe and how to put front arm sweep on and how to keep 3' degree rear toe but make it wider or narrower 😃
I THINK 😳

For those looking for a great low/medium bite setup, ROSKO has (both) his Durango's working like bosses. I run, practice and trade paint with this guy on the regular, I'm telling yeah the cars are working and working extremely well. And yes I did drive one of them, cars are set up. It's just unfortunate both the cars were slightly under geared since day one on the track by .2 FDR... Now that the cars have the correct gearing that leaves me slightly concerned on the future outcome

I'm certain ROSKO can assist anyone who is having any issues or questions, but not sure if he'd be willing to share that "One Type" set-up. Whether he knows it or not, looks like he has both cars figured out.

Sorry ROSKO, didn't mean to throw you out there like this.

Basically, on the front of the car, the standard inserts are the blank ones which equates to parallel arms with a standard width. If you move up the list on the set up sheets from the blank insert symbol they get narrower and down the list the get wider.
EXAMPLE ON FRONT
FF [ ]
FR [blank]
This will = 1" front arm sweep

EXAMPLE REAR
RF [ _]
RR [ ]
This will = 2.5" rear toe

RF [ ]
RR [ ]
This will = 3" rear toe but narrower

I cannot be arsed to write every combo 😃 sorry and hope this helps everyone
