They are used to raise or lower the rear axle. When your tires are bigger in diameter you would use a eccentric spacer that would locate the axle more to the middle, as your rear tires get smaller you would put in an eccentric where the axle hole is lower. This changes your rear ride height. If this is not what you meant then disregard everything I just said

Take a picture of your chassis and post it here so I can see what version chassis you have.

As mentioned earlier in this thread you will need to try different combos of the mounts, I'm using a Futaba 9650 and it took some trial and error to get the right combo of mounts.

is this an older chassis plate?

the second batch (late 08') of s120 kits had both sets (left and right) holes drilled for futaba offset. if you have one of these kits you will need to drill one hole. see posts 558 and 562 for my experience.

i am certain that later chassis were corrected.
