Default Question for the pros

Looking at buying some aluminium rear hub carriers for my Xray T2009. Was just wondering if I should get the 1 degree or 0 degree toe. From what Ive read they say the car will corner better with the 1 degree. is this true?

Most people run between 2 and 3 degrees of rear toe. Generally, you're better off with 1 or 2 degrees of toe at the outer hinge pins (using 1 or 2 degree hubs) since that will prevent binding at the inner hinge pins. If you can afford it, get a set of both 1 and 2 degree hubs to use as a tuning aid.

Adding toe in at the rear helps "lock" the rear in.

Check the Xray setup book for more info.
