By more scrub do you mean moving the shims to the outside of the hubs? Moving the axles further out away from the center of the car.

Yeah, more shims between the drive pin and the outer bearing in the front.
All of the shims between the outer bearing and the up-rite in the rear.
In the front this will increase the arc the wheel turns on as well as slightly increasing camber gain as the wheel is turned. Takes the "trip" out of the front end.
In the rear it moves the center line of the pivot balls further away from the center of the contact patch of the tire. This center line is where the transferring weight of the chassis is pounded into the azzfualt via the tyres...
So Mr.P.C. what your saying in regards to the rear body mount centering post, your seeing this change in steering do to the rear of the bodes leverage point on the chassis. Bitchin...one more thing to test

I don't know what degrees it would come out to. For tight tracks I run the max. For 301 I try to get the car to turn without using maximum throw for more speed through the sweepers.

So what is the deal with the Kfactory Dual Brake setup that info was released on several months ago? Has anyone tried it, is it even available? Looks like a nice brake setup.

Personally I see no reason for it. Why add all that extra mass and complexity when the stock brakes work great? That being said, I have not tried it so who knows. It might be the greatest thing on the planet but I just don't see a reason to use it.

I haven't personally run the car yet so I don't know. I have just heard of brake fade with the stock setup and this Kfactory setup looked like a good fix being that the pads are more of a real brake material and there are two brake discs to dissipate heat. Seems like the way they talk about it, it is still lightweight but I have not seen it in person. The discs are thinner than the stock piece. I mainly like it for the different material brake pads. Any chance someone sells something like that for the Mugen cars? Just the pads.

Game: I will be at 301 this weekend, but I think Hoffman will be the one blazing the track...

Moto: I have seen it on Japanese websites but never in stock...that's why I wasn't sure if it was released yet but Kfactory.

The original black Mugen pads. I hear some people are running 1 black pad and one yellow. I want to try that myself but really have had no problems with the stock brakes.

Hey Sean, long time. I run one black and one yellow and they last a long time, don't fade and stay consistent.
