Post rear

yes it will I run 1mm droop in the frt and 3 to 4 mm in the rear 2.5 toe in if u want more add a 1mm shim to the frt wheel hex and run the rear as wide as u can to keep 2 to 2.5 deg of toe...its odd but if its high bite your car will be loose as well even if u have no shims under the blocks it's because the car rolls too much so when the bite is up raise the roll center and u will see and feel it i also found u need a stiffer springs in the rear with low roll center blue frt and yellow rear because the car will roll too much and break loose as well
going to the track now for my last test befor the novak I will post what I find

Do the instructions come with a secret handshake that only Stallion owners can do?
Why is the PDF Manual nowhere to be found online?
I usually like to check these out before considering buying a kit.
Thanks!

Here is a link for the manual, not sure if it's for the belt drive or shaft drive version?

http://www.kyosho.com/jpn/support/in...021_TF_5_m.pdf

I think it's a 15 mb download!

edit: it's for the shaft drive car.
