Im running Aluminum Inclined King Pin Spindle/12*Carrier Set right now and they are dialed with the V2 tower setup. On power and off power improved. And the track we raced on had some high speed turns where people who slowed down lost 2-4 seconds a lap. But my truck was stuck on the turns allowing me carry more speed with out completely letting off the throttle. But you need the V2 tower with the shorter links, IMO....... The 12dgree is new and alot of people have not tried them yet.

I run the 10 degree inclined spindles/carriers. I like the extra off power turn-in that the 10 degree has over the 12 degree. I know a lot of people that run the 12 also. Both work very well, it is just a matter of what you're looking for out of them. 10's will have more off power turn-in. 12's will have more mid corner and exit steering.

Thanx for the info im currently runing the V2 setup also, but this is exactly what i was looking for.....I need to be able to make high speed turns with more on power sterring so i can get faster lap times
