They are offset half a hole inwards.

I felt it made more down force and yet gave less drag. Would you try it please and tell me what you think? thx

Nice looking track. Ever tried the softer IFC c-hubs?

Try running swept back front arms.
For instance: 1C/1A mounts.
This will change the wheel base, ackermen and make the car turn in harder.
P.S. Don't forget to readjust droop (6), camber (1) and toe out (1).
run the softest springs u can get away with.

I'd try a harder front spring at the least, but probably go up one step from what your running front and back.

I think I have a NIB Rayspeed out in the garage. I will check tomorrow. I will sell it if I have it. What is the characteristics of this body though, I am curious.

Whats the temp likely to be and what shock oil are you running? also how is the grip?

I'd try run a higher front RC on that track because of all the long corners, but that'll take away some steering so you'll need to get it back. Laying the rear shocks down a notch would also be an idea, that'll give you some more steer and give good side bite for the quick chicanes
