And flipped the toe plate with the same readings.
I had the same issue on one of my cars... Just replaced all the plastic inserts with different ones and the problem went away.

Try loosening the screws on one of the inner dot bushing mounts and tapping it to the inside or outside (depending if it’s reading .5deg too little or too much) and retightening while holding in place. I’ve only ever had to do this once on my 7 and 7.1 and they’ve been dead on ever since.

Need more information. Where is your car slow right now, corners, straight? If you are keeping up with everyone on the infield and only losing it towards the end of the straight, then gearing taller (lower FDR) will increase speed. But... Generally it is more difficult than that. Motor timing comes into play, and I have found that most of my lost speed on the track comes from the corners and not maintaining enough speed through them. Gearing up will not help there. What motor are you running?

Is that for your 17.5? Going from a 3.67 to 3.64, you're not going to realize any difference.

Oh and BTW, that's probably too much gear for your 17.5. Take some off and see what happens - good luck!
