I've been thinking about this a bit more lately.
I think that ARS tends to be better if the corners flow more, rather than trying to fire it through tight chicanes etc.
I also think that the reason some drivers prefer setting the ARS to give toe out entering a corner is possibly due to them running Mod.
In stock you don't get much weight transfer, particularly if you're not braking at all, but in Mod you have to use the brakes, so as the weight transfers to the front the rear will actually lift up. If set to give toe out on compression (the typical setting), it might actually be adding toe in to the rear on corner entry as the rear lifts, giving better stability on the brakes. by the time the toe is being reduced the car has already slowed down.

I have g10 in stock that I could make these with. I keep wanting to make them, but always forget. I'll work on some today.

I suspect having small in diameter individual pieces instead of longer tabs, like the roll center shims, would be desired to maintain the feel and flex given with raising the deck using washers.

I use these from CSO and they are quite easy to manage

What effect does shimming the top deck have and under what conditions would one generally do it?

I think you got it right , in stock it is maybe useless, but on some particular tracks it is useful at least for modified.
We have found with a couple of friend that if you are in high speed corner you gain a little and for the micky mouse part you have no advantage unless you can let the car doing easy roll.
Let hear more findings.

I usually shim the top deck when I remove all four screws from the center bulkhead either with or without the center post added. Shimming allows the entire length of the top deck to flex without hitting the center bulkhead. I remove those screws when I'm looking for more overall grip.

Does anyone know if Hpi silvers will fit the 15 shocks?

They will not, not without changing the shock towers anyway. BezerkRC sells them, thru Facebook. ReflexRacing also has an option.

I personally use the BezerkRC version with NT1 shocks.

Which are essentially T2/T3 shocks, correct?

Close, a little longer, I run a 2mm shim inside the shock, and use the same (larger) orings as the t4 shocks.

I'm currently building a T4 '15 and just completed putting on the rear a-arms and they don't move freely. I have diagnosed that it is the inserts. when i put the hinge pin the the insert they don't rotate freely inside. Anyone have a fix for this? Thanks
