You are gonna need a setup station to measure the actual toe. Turnbuckle lengths will vary depending on the suspension mounts/and amount of shims that you use. You can try the manual way of measuring the distance between the front and rear of the tires to calculate toe. you can google the method.

You should have received some instructions with your kit. If not, I posted it a few pages back for reference. It is on page 27 of this thread. A good starting point for your rear toe setting is 2.5 degrees, roughly 9.5mm gap on the turn buckles. Whatever rear sway bar you decide on running, you will need to cut 5mm off each end of the bars to make clearance for the rear knuckle.

Ok, ATS rear end was a blast! Was doing great till later in the day when the track got cold and the soda gummed up my tires. Then it was slip n slide. Going to another track tomorrow. Cant wait.

Good to hear it is working well. You went with the kit setup?

On another account, you guys run the shock caps vented or closed?

Yeah thought so. My rebound gets all different through the day with closed caps. Many setups don't say so just wondered. Vented it is. Thanks!

Yes vented caps I like a lot. Whatever setup works at your track you can keep just install the ATS and set toe at 2.5 to start and use the two 1mm shims provided under ball stud. Trigger has a setup you can try a page back that might work for you.

Would it be possible for a little advice?

sorry for the daft question, but could not see the answer.

What ball ends go into the steering plate, long or med? need some new ones to run 3mm ankerman.

In stock setup they are medium. I run 1mm ackerman and there's still plenty of stud left. Run em too long though and I think they'll have the potential to smack the arms on tight turning.

Just curious of what people have experienced with running the ats system on med- high bite carpet in mod?? Do you find it better to drive ? Does it has noticable cornerspeed in comparison to the standard rear end setup?

Are there any must have spares/hop-ups needed for the 2015? Seriously considering ditching my 6.2 for this.

get the double jointed front drives. i have not broken anything on mine yet so not really needing spares. get some spare shims for tuning. maybe the set of swaybars and the shims for under the arm mounts. thats pretty much what i can think of right now. you wont be dissapointed. great car.
