i tried switching the rear hubs around on the R2 for one qualifier just to loosen the rear end up a little bit cuz it pushed a touch in the corners and it slowed my lap times down almost half a second a lap....weird i guess the rearof this car likes being planted

I believe the rear toe is 4 degrees stock and if you switch the rear hub carriers, you'll get 0 degree. I'm going to pick up the ti nitrade arm mounts to reduce toe as 4 is a bit much if you ask me.

stock is 3...i have the xenon rear hubs and offset balls...so my original setup was 2.5 per side b4 i changed them ...after changing i turned it into 1 degree per side...just thought it was weird how such a small change made that much difference...maybe ill try adding more rear toe to get faster laps...hehe...its worth a shot...im already clicking off lap times about .5 to 1 second a lap faster then 99% of the other fast guys at the track with the Cuda...only my team Anonymous drivers keep up well except when fast guys from out of town show up then they're right up there too

Not sure What sort the carpet is ............ some sort of felt i think.Quite fluffy in comparison to some other carpet tracks i've raced on.

Set-up is also much softer than any other carpet track i've run on.
We seem to be running on a similar set-up to most UK runners use on ashphelt with rubbers ?

Will be using the one-way to start with as at present i cannot find anywhere with diffs instock ??

my guess would be ozite carpeting.

when i first got my R2 last season i ran plaid and purple tires on ozite with the box setup. I currently had a XXXS before this . I figured the setup was way too soft for foam but i figured i'd try it anyway since we run on a low traction carpet( new carpet not many drivers) My lap times were a good .5 a lap faster then my foam setup XXXS which made me the fastest at the track at that time....I would try the kit setup but i am sure many others have a nice setup to try out

OVA:
if you have the offset ball studs, you should be able to correct the amount of toe at the rear. Use it in combo with the stock studs.

Actually, if you have the stock hub (which are 2 deg.) and you flip them left and right, you'll have zero rear toe, since the arms have 2 deg. built in, putting the rear hub on the opposite side will cancel out the 2 deg.
