It has the same effect, but we don't generally feel like we need it with the 2.0 like we did with the 1.0.

yep he just reinforced that it was not a fluke last year. He was really fast. RM looked to be struggling all weekend, but Phend was on top of it all weekend long. He had a real shot at 4x4 buggy also, but a couple mistakes cost him.

Not sure your description of struggling is accurate - Maifield qualified 3rd and finished 2nd overall...

Raising the tranny is not common on the 2.0. A feature of the 2.0 I would suggest playing with however is adding the axle spacer for high bite astro but if traction is low I would remove the axel spacer. This is the 1mm spacer between the inner bearing and the CV joint referenced in the assembly manual.

Raising the tranny on the 1.0 was to increase rear traction on exit. I would think for astro you would be looking to free up the car so not sure this is a change for you to even play with.

I have noticed the 1mm axle spacer info missing from the newer setups - like on the Maifield one. Unless I just keep missing it.

OK, thanks. I humbly suggest a checkbox on the setup sheet for it.
