And thanks Charles for directing me to his site.
it changes the width of the blocks, you can have two setups with the same toe but one makes the car wider than the other.

1 degree rear hub DO NOT give you caster, the change the rear toe at the hub instead of at the block..so if you had 3 degrees with the blocks and added one degree rear hubs you would have 4 degrees or rear tow per side.

Rod,

Thanks,

Kevin

Hi Kev...oh man. I should have written Corey's setup down before I took it off. I'll try to post it later. Right now, it's too freaking hot and I gotta go run some errands.

The track was good. Larry from sales and his friend spent Friday afternoon/evening blowing off and putting down three gallons of syrup. During the course of Saturday, the temps got way over the 80's and track temps soared to like 130 and above. Happy hour (when the sun goes down a little and track is at it's best) was a blast. Three run rp's were still very good.

Kevin, here is what I believe to be Corey's setup. It's dialed in the sweeper and infield. Kinda hard to nail the entry going into the esses. If there's something off, I'm sure Corey will chime in
