No offense but I actually hate the look of a blackened out car, it makes them look cheap and kinda corny to my eye.

It never ceases to amaze me the mentality of the human being, back when cars where all black people added colored bits to trick them out. Now that cars come with trick colored and anodized bling bits, people blacken them out to make them look mundane again.

No flamming necessary here folks just my opinion.

this is my currant set up

Well its quite simple actually, He is psycho and he cuts off the servo ears. Then shoe goo's the servo to the chassis. It wouldn't surprise me at all if he was walking around with a necklace with ears on it....

Ive had these on my car for ages Ben. They are really good. If you want a more stable car with less steering, use the outer holes. If you want more steering and a less stable car, use the inner hole Personally i use the inner hole. I only use the rear arms though.

Whats the difference between using shims behind the rear arm holders and using the outboard hubs with different toe built into them. Is there a handling difference or is it just 2 of the same ways to adjust the same thing?

See, only so many people do a fully blacked out car. Many use colored shims and screws that match electronics on the car. Wanna use a blue esc? Black out the parts, pick up some blue screws and BAM! Clean ride. Blue esc and orange parts?

Just my .02, but most people that do not like the blacked out look, don't even make a attempt to have a clean car. Multiple color wire, no color way, just a insane amount of goofy-ness. I'm not saying your like this, just a lot of big mouth people I've talked to at tracks.
