For a tight good traction track i'd try middle, or for a tight loose track maybe even forward. Save the hubs back set up for rough stuff or when your car feels "pushy"..............jmo, Jim
Thanks for the suggestions Jim. I ran Aarons setup today with the rear hubs moved back, 3.5 rear toe and 2k diff in the rear. Didn't turn as well in the tight turns on this high traction track. I'm gonna try moving the hubs to the middle and maybe going back to the stock 3 deg. rear toe.

P.S. I thought you sold your Jammin on ebay a couple of months ago. Did you get another?

slrguy, ya, I sold it a couple months ago and I run an X ray XB8 now. But the memories, both good and bad are still fresh!
Plus all these tuning changes effect the cars the same, the only real differences are in how and if they can be done on each car.

For the sake of people with a 56K internet connection (not me, thank god!) you shouldn't really make the pictures much larger than 640x480.

Well I'm freezing my butt off trying to run the 'ol buggy, the off-road season ended 2 weeks ago here, and its all going to indoor now. Although I might be setting my Jammin up for some snow racing in a while from now!

Our offroad season in Ontario finished about three weeks ago but I plan on running during the winter. Just waiting for my replacement engine and pipe. I took everything from the buggy for my truggy.
