I also ran the same-set up first in 19t and it was really good there too. I went mid front and flat pins and high rear roll as many suggested. Easy to drive and good corner speed-just rolled through the apex.

Great to hear! (and maybe not so considering the power problems)

Make sure you update your online setup.

midnight, do you adjust the wheelbase also when reshimming the arm angle? changing the inboard toe changes the wheelbase by swinging the arm forward...

No, I never thought about that. I was just hoping that I could replace the rear hubs and fix the problem.

Midnight, the new hubs will put it very close, mine was still off a little bit... i never bothered shimming each side differently though... that ~.25 degree was closer than i could ever feel...

I can't say for how precise they are, but I'm sure they are fine... I'll be getting them next time for the durability... The only issue I really had with the car was pulling the bolt out of the rear hub... fixed mostly with the setscrew in the extra hole, but i think the alum hubs are the way to go

Last week I run the 1. round -Tr National. This was my first official run with T2. I took 2. place in modified class. The car was fast and superb. Thnx Xray guys. This car is really different. Last year I run the whole season with fk05 and won the national. But the T2 is much more better, stable, faster. Exsp. corner speed is unbeliveble. Extra thnx for TEAMGP. the tips all I read was usefull.

Well, to reply to both, I'm not running either at the moment... I'd have to go back and look at the hudy book to think about it all.. i'd always run a long set screw in the opposite hole that i ran the camber link in though. just make sure it sets below the surface of the hub...
