Default Different degree C-hubs

Can someone explain the advantages of using, for example using a 3 degree hub instead of a 6 degree hub? I have a Hpi Pro 3, and I'm getting it set-up for vta racing this summer and i have a 3,4,6,8 degree hubs, can someone explain the advantages of using various degree hubs in certain situations?

They change your kingpin inclination, and alter the turn in. Lower value gives more turn in (i.e. car turns in a smaller radius circle).

it also effects other things than just turn in. caster angle is also changed, which effects on power steering and stability of the car. less castor can make a twitchy car in a straight line (more turn in). more caster helps the re centering and overall stability and on power steering. also your front axle type will need to be considered as well. if you are running a front diff, then you will have already increased turn in over a spool. something to think about.

Curious what battery you plan to use. If its a LiPo you may be limited in what will fit as there will be a number of issues.
