Default Arm inserts ?

Does anyone know of a chart of what all the arm insert combinations achieve as to antisquat/toe/track width ? I don't seem to be seeing such a thing in the manual.

Spent the afternoon yesterday painting the ZX6. *Now as soon as those Ti ballstuds and motor screws turn up from AMain (waiting over 4 weeks now!) I can get her on the track! *Can't wait.

Nice paint job. Painting mine this week. Will be a solid color because I don't have those skills.

Caught some video of local Kyosho racer Ryan Matesa running his new zx6 through its paces at TRCR.

Really enjoyed the zx5, very fast and consistent, but steering was not that responsive and had some understeer. From what I read the zx6 has lots of steering. But has the responsiveness changed at all. My style of driving is edgy and like agile cars. Should I sell my xb4 for zx6?

Finished the build, Really nice build. The only thing I changed was the sway bar screw to the bigger ones. Just waiting on the esc and paint and it's ready to go.

Nice paint job. Just sprayed liquid mask on tonight and then the beer hit me. Also waiting for my esc and motor to get here Saturday.

Car is good, but feels like its over rating causing it to be loose mid corner and off. I'm running 35/30 1.6/1.7 on the shocks. I've been racing on low bit tracks. I've tried yellow springs on the front and it was better. Car feels like it will be great on high bite. Couple more things: How tight are you guys running the diffs? There another local racer with zx6, and we both having trouble clearing a triple. I don't understant it. My boys 44.2 will clear it easy from inside the corner. Kenny, which end did you go to long shock ends? Thanks.

Try the Yellow spring in the front with the kit piston and 35 wt oil and kit spring on the rear with kit piston and 25 wt oil. That is what my buddy is running and the car got way better after that change.

I went back to the small ends with flat arms. right now my setup is 42.5 t front 32.5 rear 2 hole 1.6 pistons. hubs middle in the rear. orange front gold rear springs. tight front diff medium tight rear. 2 mm inside rear at bulkhead all the way inside and 3rd farthest hole on the hub. pink sway bar front and rear. I'm going to go to 37.5 front 30 rear as the car is a little stiff but feel really good overall. its starting to come around and drive very consistent and easy to drive. I'm c in on the rear front hanger and rear rear f out. then c out in the front front and rear. this is rear motor shorty with esc in the front. now I'm going to try servo transponder and receiver all on the same side with the motor and esc on the left with the esc in the rear to see what it does to the handling. seems to add a little more weight to the rear so should plant the car more but think it might be to much possibly.
