Default Short Course Dirt Oval late model set ups

Im running a Sc10 Late model on clay ovals and looking for set up ideas. Has anybody tried the different caster hubs on the rear?

Default Setup

One thing you can do is take the inner hingpin out and redrill a hole where the screw that holds the pin in. Then move the pin to the new location and use a 440 screw in the original hole to hold it in. Do this on the rr only. It will give you around 0 toe on the rr and will make it turn way better. You can also get higher rate springs from rc4less as the offroad springs are soft for oval.

caster is generally on the front end of the car unless you might possibly have 4 wheel steering.
You may be referring to toe which the previous poster told you a simple way to reduce that. Generally you will be running stiffer springs than the average off-road kit springs. It really depends on your track.

sorry your right I was talking toe, I seen some different hubs Like 1/2 or 1 I was wondering if those would be better than the regular sc set up.
