gives you more steering mid to exit

i have 0.5 on mine (that`s fine;;; i think the 1-1.5 will be to much for rubber but for Foams !!!

with the front toe blocks do you still set the wheels to O toe with the set-up gauges?

yes
you only angling the wishbone , also this does reflect in the wheelbase aswell if you put 1.0 dgree block on more then likley that could be .5-1mm difference ,making it shorter wheelbase ,(wheel end)

on stock 0 are best indoors, as the more toe-out u run, the less your car will carry cornerspeed -> 0 carries most cornerspeed

hi guys... i just want to clear what ive read regarding the front toe blocks...

if i put a 1 deg front toe block... i still have to adjust my front tires toe to 0 deg... because in using the front toe blocks the angle of the wishbones is what were changing to achieve more mid to exit steering and not the angle of the tires... have i got the whole concept correctly???

at my home racetrack, it´s a carpet track, i installed the 1.5 deg toe out block with one way and rubber tires and this worked pretty good.
and it s true the more toe out the less you have corner speed.
but it´s still fast enough for me...........

in germany we have pretty large carpet tracks, so corner speed is the key thing.

on more technical tracks more toe-out may be better because you are able to hug the corners more.

i tried the chris setup of rear toe hubs, went with 2.5 on the block and 1 on the hub. car was really easy to drive and very consistant. great turn in and the spool kept it planted on exit. (indoor asphalt/high bite)
