Yeah, that setup is pretty unique, Maybe with the new car I
won't need to bring a heat gun along on racedays.

Thumbs down Breakages

I keep breaking front hubs and knuckles even from small hits! Anyone got any tips other than don't hit things. Even my old Xray seemed stronger than this.

Your using which ones the standard knuckles or the carbon ones.??
You could try giving the Xenon Alloy front C-hub a try
and use the non-carbon steering knuckles

Default help with rear toe in

Hi, i know that this has been asked before but i cant find where it is
I cant get the rear left toe to be anything more than 1 degree toe in i've tried offset balls front and rear and that didnt help...i've tried using standard pivot balls and that gave me maximum of 1 degree
it used to be fine...dont know why it's like this now all of a sudden
