if you use the 1 degrees hubs and 2 degrees of inboard toe the car is easier to drive than just with 3 degrees of inboard toe

it is something to do with the angles of the inner pins but i am no expert , i know my car is easier to drive with the 1 degrees hubs on the car

What do you mean by easier to drive; more stable, better turn in or something else?

Shoe goo. As long as you let the stuff dry for a good day or two I have never lost a servo. Ever. I and I don't run with servo savers or any of that. Just because it's easier to get the electronics on the chassis, but with the sxx I have more then enough room to have used the posts. But I prefer the goo

I know out board toe is supposed to free your car up a bit compared to just having all inboard toe. It's a good tuning option! One of those things you gotta try out and see if you like it or not

yeah more stable on power , the rear grip seams to be increased without running more rear toe ,

i don't know why , i just tried it once and like it

i am going to try 1.5 degrees inboard toe and the 1 degree on the hub

see if this fixes my front end push (understeer)

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.
My car is clean, black wiring except for a red power cable, ko speedie with a heat sink so its mainly black but it is orange, custom paint on the hood, one of the trickest paint jobs at the track and also one of the fastest.

Our track almost every other car is black, one guy even removed his titanium screws for a clean look, now his car is overweight but hey it looks clean, lol!!!

I like living in the in between world. Black wires, Black most things, But I tend to like a touch of blue or something. Since my xray bits are now orange I have a little orange on things like the motor sleeve..

Where is your push? In? Out? Slow? Fast?

That's how most of my cars have been before I really started the anodizing thing.
