Yes, you place 0 inserts in the front outer and front inner instead of the 1 up/1 down that would give you 12 degrees.

So do you have to build this buggy with both metric and standard hardware?

There is a few metric screws mainly the gear diff screws. I dont have manual but pretty sure all you need is 1.5 mm hex and the rest are standard. If you dont have metric nut drivers you can use the handy multi socket tool they supply in the kit! I have always kept sae and metric tools!

Ryan, Casper or really anyone,

Has anyone tested the hinge pins with the front hinge pin inserts both 1 up (hrc) or both 1 down (lrc)? If so what were the results?

I like to run both 1's up on large sweeping tracks. Seems to take the initial bite off and float over the bumps.

I'm not sure how much it's loose where it looks more like a setup change is needed. Seems to be making an overly aggressive initial move in most of the corners and killing your corner speed. Just an observation. I always have a few trusted mechanics give me feedback on what they see with my car which helps me immensely...

Got mine all finished up for next weekend. Hoping to get some shakedown laps on our test track if the weather lets up and it dries out a bit!

I understand that. I just wanted a more convincing confirmation that it was in the plans for a future car and I got it Thank You

I would assume if they clean slate a car they will go metric but who knows how long that will be. Will they 4.0 the current platform or will the next version go clean slate? Only the designers at TLR will know that but being the 3.0 was just released i would say we have at least 2 more years with the current stuff. I don't work there so I don't have design authority so I can't say they would absolutely go metric but one would think they would go that way.
