I'm trying to reduce the rear toe-in but no matter what combination of hinge pin inserts I use I can't get less than 3* Do I have to purchase the optional front hinge pin mount? I'm looking to get about 1.5 to 2* of rear toe in.
Thanks for any help.

You should be able to use the .5mm wider in RF and the 1mm narrower in the RR, that will get you about 2.2. 1mm wider in RF will get you below 2mm.

One thing that can happen, if you are using a setup station is that the plastic piece on top can hit the body posts, so it doesn't seem like things are moving. Remove or just push aside the body posts.

using the pills in the rear.. you can use the 1* inside on the RR block.. on each side.. to get you 2* of rear toe.

Yup, that did it, it didn't occur to me to turn the 1* block side ways Duh!
Can you answer another question? The manual shows an optional rear 1 piece suspension holder, #303711-0 that takes the place of the two stock ones. The manual says it increases steering, how does it do that? Thanks again for your help.

It makes the rear of the chassis more solid, reducing rear traction.

Depending on conditions and setup, it can help with rotation, and/or, make it difficult to drive.
Must be said, you rarely see it in team driver setups.
I assume they are more interested in the extra traction from split blocks

I think I'll find another way to get more steering, I just saw it in the manual and was curious about it. Ya never know unless you ask

Definitely changing the pivot block inserts to reduce toe will help.
Remember you can also use the different combinations to reduce rear track width whilst reducing the toe as well which can help with steering and rotation

Can I use the hiro seiko t4 2016 screw kit on my 2015? Or are a lot of screws different sizes? Or does anyone know where I can get a 2015 set? Anyone used those Twork's brand screws on eBay? Any good?

Is the hiro seiko a good screw kit? Is that everybody uses? It's the titanium and orange alum kit. I want to use the alum on the top deck and titanium on the chasis bottom and everywhere else
