I used the MTX-4 titanium screw kit, almost every screw you need, some people at my track used the corally rdx screw kit, but i think the MTX-4 is cheaper.

On most this should be correct, what station?

Hi Gonzo, yes you are correct. to achieve your total rear toe you can do it in any way you want to, but it is for sure that it acts different on the track if it is 2 deg all inboard as opposed to 2 deg all out board. not one or another being better or worse but for sure different.

News: Paul's and Teemu's Snowbirds setup sheets are posted on teamxray.com.

Nothing shocking in them, but they are a little different. Paul again went with high roll center mounts all around, ran 35wt oil and hard springs in the front, and ran 3deg total rear toe. Teemu didn't run rear side posts, had wide hub offsets in the front, and ran 2.5deg total rear toe.

It's strange that Travis S won with a 1deg total rear toe setup, and since then I've not seen any other setup with 1deg toe. The car is stable with 1deg rear toe, even in mod, so are they doing it to increase turn in? Or maybe to run a stiffer rear end without spinning out?

Im sorry Steve, we will have some more bonding time soon.

Hi Adam, travis's car was very good with the 1deg toe, and obviously drove like a champ. for some reason i just always run atleast two deg toe. as for my set-up i adapted the oil and spring for running on the inside hole on the front arm and i think that it was good when i did that for the mains. it just goes to show that with this car alot of set-ups work great.

Keep in mind that this only applies to rear toe.

Total toe on the front can be set to whatever you want with the steering links (out-board), regardless of how much in-board toe you have.

Because setup stations measure toe at the point where the wheels attach, you would get the total toe-in of 2 degrees per side.
