anyone using the 2degree aluminum rear hub carriers?

What is the difference of shimming 2 degrees with a 1 degree hub vs shimming 1 degree with 2 degree hubs. End result is 3degrees rear toe, what is the noticable difference between the two?

Thanks

I dont remember exactly what the difference is but Josh Cyrul explained it one time and it made sense. It has something to do with keeping the supension arms straight during compresion by running outboard toe. Cant remember exactly what though. But I do know that he said outboard toe was better than inboard on the rear of the car.

It will also lengthen the wheelbase slightly.

In my experience on carpet with foams:

1d hubs with 2d in-board toe-in (shims)
* Decreases rear traction on entry and mid corner
* Increases rear traction on exit (anywhere on-power)

2d hubs with 1d in-board toe-in (shims)
* Increases rear traction on entry and mid corner
* Decreases rear traction on exit (anywhere on-power)

In the past I've used the 1d hubs (with 0d in-board toe-in), but now I use the 2d hubs (with 1d in-board toe-out for an overall 1d rear toe-in) as it loosens the rear end on-power.

The more out-board toe you have in the hubs, the less the camber changes at the wheels when going from off-power to on-power. It brings more overall rear stability.

Now, the more the rear arms are swept further backward (less in-board toe-in), the more your rear tires will increase in negative camber as the suspension squats under power. This reduces the contact patches of both rear tires, thus reducing overall grip on-power. But since its negative camber gain, the outside loaded rear tire is leaning more into the corner and it gives a very controlled rear end rotation.

to my knowledge rear toe will increase or dicrease corner entry , if are running
mod or 19t you may want to run more rear toe to slow down a bit the car on corner entry and in stock you may want to use less rear toe for smoother roll on corners i use 1 1/2 for final rear toe = to smoother roll just because you carry less speed , then again those are my to cents , just try it and see what happens
