There is no VLA adjustment on the original XXX-NT, so disregard that statement. On the Gen II cars (BK2, MF2, AD2, and now the XXX-CR) you can adjust the effective length of the suspension arms.

Anti-squat is a tricky adjustment to explain. More anti-squat will give you more forward bite, and theoretically should keep more weight on the front tires when you're on-power, but because it can make the truck wheelie, that's obviously not the case (sometimes). Less anti-squat will make the truck feel smoother but will squat more under acceleration, theoretically taking weight off the front tires, but can help keep the front end on the ground. It seems like we found that 3 degrees of anti-squat was a good balance for the AD1 and I remember running that most of the time.

More anti-squat will help the truck jump higher, and can help the truck go through square-edged bumps. Less anti-squat will tend to stay lower in the air, and go through round ruts better.
