Los1Fan, cool, I'll go take a gander at it right now cause I do have the low-roll center setup.

Thanks!

Super steve....the last few sets of the graphite conversion that I have seen did have all the NEW UPDATED parts in them....as long as the package you get is new and not a few months old it should be no problem getting all the new stuff in one bag.

Jitsuguy.....I have sorta the same problem on my car to get 2 degs of total rear toe in the rear I need to run a right 1/2deg hub normal on the right so it equals 2 deg per side. So on the left I have a 0 deg block and on the right I have a 1/2 deg block just so they have the same amount total. If I did not use that block on the right I would have 2deg on the left and 1 1/2 on the right using 0deg blocks. Its strange but a couple of the cars that I have seen here seem to have the same problem.

Well, that sucks... So, is it a problem with the hub carrier? I would think so cause I tried the hub on both sides and it does the same thing just switched... So, should I just get another set of hub carriers? That would suck, but oh well, you gotta do what you gotta do I guess. But I have checked and it definitely isn't an optical illusion.

Thanks,

odd but intresting..i can't say i've seen this problem before for i'm the only racer in my club that has been racing with the xxx-s for so long...most of the guys i know that races xxx-s is still begining so i dun think they care about or notice the difference yet...anyways...Kevin K : are you using the low roll center blocks are the other racers using the low roll center block as well...if so..i'm guessing these little buggers are not well made..

Kevin K,

I remember seeing some of Hodge's set up's that had that as well (rear toe issue)...... You guys are doing the right thing by checking. Not sure if this is an on going issue or what, but at least you have the fix................................

Well, I'm not so sure I have a fix. I'm looking for a fix still... I did check my low roll center blocks and tried to adjust them, but the problem is definitely still there. I'm wanting to run the 1 degree switched setup (1 degree hub carriers on opposite sides). I'm thinking I'll need to get another set of carriers cause I didn't notice this problem with the low roll setup and the 1/2 degree setup. Things that make you go "hmmmmmmmmmmmmm"

Well, on the bright side, the next time I lose I can blame it on the car.

theres really a lot of possibilities here guys...tweaked chassis...chassis holes not properly aligned...blocks tweaked...arms tweaked...hub carriers tweaked...or maybe your setup blocks (i.e. hudy setup blocks, integy setup blocks) are tweaked ...or your eyes playing trick on you ....or maybe your arm arent travelling evenly with the other side thus changing the toes....

Well, either way, I can tell you it sucks... A lot of money on this car, and I can't get one tire to face the right direction... Must be a glitch in the matrix.

the rear toe issue is strange but like others have posted.....not all cars have this problem. Mine does and I adjust my toe with different blocks on the right side.
