I don't see how a roll center change will affect dive/squat.

For starters you'll most likely need to go to a harder front and rear spring, decrease droop, go the a front diff and probably have to mess around with roll centers depending on track conditions.

Default t2 008

hey guys, im looking to buy a 008 and im kinda confused. The track i run at is a converted tennis court, with some kind of grey paint over the surface. Im running a crt.5 with rubber tires, and it hooks like a champ!. The guys running elect car are running foams and look to be sliding around. I have no idea what shore tire they are running. Im looking at the Rubber tire kit, But dont know if ill be running foams. if some one could point me in a direction i would appreciate it.

Hi Guys
My Car has 1 degree outboard TOE But I've noticed 90% of the setup sheets has no outboard TOE....
Why is that?
Why many drivers prefer 0 Outboard Toe in>>>?<<<

The Reedy pack does not fit in the 008 well at all. If you install it with the humps down, it rubs against the spur gear. If you install it with the humps up, the pack becomes extremely tall.
Either way, there is some grinding + shimming needed (unless you are comfortable hanging the pack way off of the chassis).
