Default Rear hub positions..

What affects does moving the rear hubs up/down (upper and lower holes on the rear hub) have on the car/truck??

I did a pretty good bit of searching on this, but didn't come up with much. Thanks..

i did ask a pro and i was told to run the upper posostion when track is really choppy and whooped out that it will help rear remain more settled in those conditions.. i havent tried it yet so im curious for feedback from people who tried it.. i run RC8T and B...

The lower holes raise the hub upwards and lower the chassis and the upper hole lowers the hub and raises the chassis position. I imagine using the lower hole for smoother tracks and the upper hole for rougher tracks. That was how I interpreted the effect of changing that up.

Making the Camber Link longer or higher will result in less Camber change during suspension travel, which will increase traction but decrease stability. A shorter Camber Link will result in more Camber change, or a decrease in traction but more stability.

Not the links.. I'm referring to where the rear hingepins insert. There is an upper and lower hole.
