Default Stock Anti-Squat Settings? (1/8th Nitro Buggies)

I'm trying to find out the stock anti-squat settings for various 1/8th off-road nitro buggies. I run a Jammin X1 and it's 2.5 degrees.

If you have (or know) another brand can you please post it here? Also, if there is a different setting that you prefer to run that would be good to know also.

Thanks!

Most buggies run 2.5 to 3 deg toe ,helps with keeping car stabil ,if you go to less toe the buggy gets abit tail happy/rotates more.

Thank you for the reply, but I'm wondering about anti-squat, not toe.

Generally most buggies come with 2 degrees of anti-squat like the Kyosho Infernos, Mugen, Hong Nor 9.5s and Ho Bao Hypers.

Thanks. That's what I was wondering. Mostly just for a baseline comparison. I'm going to get a few additional anti-squat plates for my buggy and wanted to know what the others came with from the factory.

According to Amain's web site 2.5 degrees is stock.

Do they sell all of the plates together as a set? If so do you have the part number for it?
