Default HEX SPACING......?

So my quest to completely understand my TC5R set-up continues. What is exactly hex spacing and what purpose does it serve? Adive is appreciated in advance.

hex spacing as refered to from the tc5 setup sheet is just a shim, washer, or spacer that goes on the axle between the hex drive and the wheel. this is what i and others use, http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXFSD2&P=7

It's used to adjust the track width of the car.

This is taken from the Xray setup book which explains it a little:

Front track-width

Wider
Decreases front grip.
Increases understeer.
Slower steering response.
Use to avoid traction rolling.
Narrower
Increases front grip.
Decreases understeer.
Faster steering response.

Rear track-width

Wider
Increases rear grip at corner entry.
Increases high-speed on-throttle steering.
Use to avoid traction rolling.
Narrower
Increases grip at corner exit.
Increases high-speed understeer.
Increases front grip in hairpin turns.
