Shiming up the inner pivot point for the upper link will result in more chassis roll. On low traction tracks you want more roll.
Higher inner pivot points lower the roll center, while lower inner pivot points raise the roll center. Higher traction conditions you want less roll.

Sorry guys for the mistake, I have edited the post to read correctly now. I was thinking the correct thing but typed the opposite.

Would have made this post a little hard to understand.

Although not exactly the same as castor.

I need some help, what kind of steel spools are you guys using in the Yokomo BD? I shear off the plastic one and I have been looking for a steel replacement. I dont really want to buy a bunch of plastic ones.

Yes they are heavy, but seem to work very well in stock, I believe they even help in stock and help carry more speed thru the corners. Not having any steering problems with it at all in stock.

Titanium Racing has titanium spools which should be strong and light. Not sure if your interested in these but you can order direct from their site.

Our spools are indeed very light and strong. You can have a choice of either Aluminium oudrives or Delrin outdrives. The Derin outdrives also comes with a pair of titanium sleeves to strengthen the outdrives. If you do ever break them the outdrives are replaceable at a small price.
