Default Arm mount shims on FT TC4

What would the effect be when I drive without arm mount shims all around on my FT TC4 in compare to the stock shim use as discribed in the manual?

Removing all the shims would lower the roll center. This is how I setup for Carpet.

mr. barry is correct. i've been experimenting wit the .030" spacers for arm mount spacing and it has worked out very well. when traction is low use more spacers and if it is high traction use less spacers.
try out every spacer and see what happens
