With 52mm the car is easier to drive but it understeers more than with 50mm. The car is more agressive with 50 mm.

Also, when you run toe on the hubs, that toe is constant as the suspension compresses. With inboard toe, it continues to toe in more as the suspension is compressed. Having outboard toe versus inboard can help free up in the rear end in the corners.

I run my belt in the central (kit) position
Hi Damian, what setting do you run on the front belt as i can never decide if mine is too loose.

I just recently added 1* on the outboard hubs, while running same amount of total toe as I previously did by just adding shims. It definately did free up the rear end, especialy in tight S curve sections of the track.

How would adding the 1 degree hubs effect the handling in long high speed sweeper turns?

Our track is pretty tight and turny and I need to get some more rear side-to-side traction to hold more speed but I don't want to sacrifice turning speed either.

I feel the '12 is by far the easiest to drive. I had an '11, but I couldn't get the right feel. I think the stock set up is the best to use. The only thing I changed was going to a 1.5 front bar. I like a car w/ a little push. I have driven a fellow racer s411, and it felt very fast, but a tad loose in the rear for me. He didn't cut the top deck yet to plant the rear, but i'm sure once he did, the rear became planted. JMO

Would you recommend using 52 in front and 50 in the rear? Would that create more understeer with more traction going to the rear?

It's better in my opinion to have 52mm in the rear and 50mm in front, since you have the stability at the rear and agression in front You can combine it and drivers use different combinations. In general 52mm are better for large fast tracks and 50 mm are better for smaller, more technical asphalt tracks.

Have anyone try the modification rear suspension like Hagberg did on DHI cup? How does it feel? Will it works on asphalt? Thanks

I race at a fairly technical track, the rear end of my t3 was too planted causing the chassis to not properly rotate through the turns (s turn). When I went to 1* outboards (along with a longer rear link) the car really came alive in that particular section. I made both changes (outboard and longer rear link) at the same time. I feel that the longer link, combined with the outboard 1*, made more of a difference than if I would of just changed the outboards alone.
