Friends: Just played with a new setting last time at track: reversed A-arms hex-balls, and then placed a 1.0mm spacer underneath! This setting really speeds up cornering a little bit! But then problem came... As the ball is reversed, the 'contacting' area with the lower chasis is greatly reduced, so a small crash of the car will compress the hex ball 'hardly' into the chasis... I found this when I did the cleaning: a 'deep mark' on the chasis under the balls!

(Pic from a Japanese website... Sorry!)

So what does that do to the overall height of the balls and suspension?

I think that should change the roll centre a little bit (actually, not really know the theory behind... )... Please note mine is a R1! For R2, I think using the mid span A-arm should gives us enough steering for tight track!
