Lowering the spindle will help you gain a little more steering on entry and raising it will induce a little push. That's what I found on mine anyway.

From Schelle Racing website:

Kurt "Coach" Wenger Axle Height Tuning Tips:

Axles Up: (Thin on top/ Thick on bottom) Max Steering and Corner Speed. Sometimes hard to drive.

Axles Middle: (Middle bushing both sides) Standard, Neutral Feeling.

Axles Down: (Thick on top/Thin on bottom) Easy to drive, Reduced entry steering, stable in bumps.

I use it as a quick droop adjustment...although there is a little more going on than just that with this adjustment. (shock length is the true droop adjustment for 1/10).

I'd love to have droop screws for all new losi 1/10 cars in the future......just asking...

Shims on top = similar to reducing droop
Shims on bottom = more droop

And, the roll center will change slightly.....

I would like to see droop screws also.

I am still unclear, can someone explain running the STD rear hex vs the +.75 hex.

Sorry if this is already covered. My 22 2.0 came w the .75 but I'm curious about any benefit to going w STD.

Our track is kindof a wierd slippery clay.. gets good 5 min after watering but 10 min after water starts getting dusty and slippery.

This isn't what the other replies support but it's what I've found through testing and thinking about the physics of it.

A more narrow rear end will lock it in but won't be as stable. A wider rear end will be a little more loose and as a result the car will rotate better, it'll also be more stable.

A wider car should be easy to think about why it's more stable. Think about a stadium truck and how stable it is. Spread your feet farther apart and you'll feel more stable than if your feet were touching.

As far as a narrow car being more traction, think about putting your hand over a soda can and trying to crush it (without getting a wind up). Is it going to be easier to crush when it's less than a foot away, or easier if it's at arms reach?

You are also changing how far the wheel is from the hinge pin, but I think that's less noticeable of a difference. I think this gives more forward traction. Say you moved the hinge pin on the arm and used a wider hex, I think you'd have more forward bite.

Personally I run Ryan's setup, but I've altered the shock package to better handle the nuances of my track. It looks like there are three setups for that track on the TLR website. So you want to look at setups based and driving style. Mine is more Ryan's and my dad's is closer to Frank's. Which ever you choose, know that this is just a starting point. You'll want to customize the setup to fit you personally. This is why you see minute changes in setup people are posting.

Thanks redb! I saw those and was posting because i cant say i have seen those pistons being used or even tslked about on any other buggy. Im particularly curious how the 3x1.3 and 3x1.4 act over the 2x1.6 combo.

Questions?? ?

What do you think is different? The weight/ of the rocket part is 36g and the TLR is 35g

Just a slight clarification, the TLR part is 35 g over the stock part and not total weight. While the rocket part is 32 g above the stock part for a total of 36 g.

So by the rocket rc page that would mean that the TLR part is 39 g total, even though TLR does not explicitly say. The TLR part seems to be 3 g heavier.

Has anyone ever tried putting something like this on the rear end of the 22 2.0?

I somehow always strip ball studs out of the rear bulk head and I'm looking for ideas.
