Unfortunately we have never released those to the market. Your best bet is to run 1 degree pivot with 1 degree hubs. That will get you close.

I noticed the US Champs Setup and the ROAR Nats Setup are very similar. I found it a bit odd BK was using a .5 rear sway-bar and none up front. What do the .60 washers on the bellcrank plate & .90 on the knuckle do?
By running a rear bar and no front the car will just have more steering everywhere on the track. That is how a lot of us tuned our cars last year by changing different thickness of sway bars. As for the bumpsteer, that would of gave BK a lot of bump out...something he always runs. Bump out will make the car steer more in the center of the turn.

Todd-for stock-no matter what set-up i run-its pretty much always has too much mid-off steering in long corners. Its just keep steering into the apex. Can you recommend another bump steer set-up-one thats more neutral steering for stock?

Todd - Could you explain how bump toe out gives more steering? That sounds backwards. Bump toe out would cause the tires to turn out of the corner as the chassis rolls...reducing your steering input. Joel Johnson always said bump toe in would give more steering and bump toe out should be avoided.

I feel it does what I said it does. I am talking about the front of the car just so we are on the same page. Here is why, as the suspension compresses and you are steering through a turn your outer wheel will have less steering throw however your inside tire will have more steering throw. Its kind of like reactive ackerman....not sure if that makes sense or not to you. With bump in, at full steering throw you will have the outer tire turning in more and the inside turning in less giving you less steering and better braking capabilities.

That depends on what you want. If you want more steering then offset hubs it is. If you are looking for more rear bite then std. hubs work better.
