Front Lower arm spacer is behind the front arm (pushing the arm forward)

Front Upper arm spacers (caster)-the thinnest of the two spacers is between the front tower and upper arm, the rest of the spacers are on the back side. Depending on the track size/layout and surface, I play with the caster position alot. If I want the cars steering more responsive, use more clips behind the upper front arm (usually on loose small tracks or lots of tight turns)

Rear lower arm spacer is in front of the rear arm

Wheel hubs
Front....+1mm
Rear.....+2mm

I think using the +1mm will be better in the rear, however the +2mm at the nitro challenge was very good for that high speed and large track. Most of the time making the back end wider can make the car less reactive and looser. Wide is good if there is lots of traction and a big track to make the car stable.

If you want more overall steering, try using the stock 0 offset front wheel hub but add another 1mm washer on the pivot ball on each side. The longer you can make the front arm the more steering you will usually gain (using wider hexes doesnt make your a-arm any longer, just the width). If you want to take steering out and make the car easy to drive, take all the 1mm washers out (the washer between the pivot ball and front arm) and use the 2mm wheel hex. Make sure when adding or taking away these washers you have to re adjust your steering links and the upper pivot ball to get back the correct camber

front sway bar

2.3 is stock for the front end. At nitro challenge I started off practice and the first round of qual. with the 2.3 front bar. Round 1 the track was pretty dry and had alot of traction. For round 2 I found a 2.5 front bar (If I had a 2.4 I think that would of been best), there was a huge difference going from 2.3 to 2.5, the 2.5 took away alot of steering but made the car extreamly easy to drive (round 2 was my best finish for a round). I was a little worried about the steering I lost with the 2.5 so I put the 2.3 back on and mounted the link a few mm from the end of the bar.

The link that set screws to the sway bar is an adjustment as well, the closer you mount the link on sway bar to the end the softer the bar will be and the further away from the end the stiffer the bar will work.

Thanx John.

He must have made more, b.c. some of the guys over the pond had some of the screws and stuff on their buggy too.

I will take out the balls cover and try and see if the balls are pushed all the way to the end.

it's definitely somewhere in between. if you look at the new m2c tower, it has both sets of holes and they are in completely different parts of the tower. i believe they also have the 15mm inboard position. i have 9mm, 11mm and 15mm holes drilled inboard of the inner most STOCK truggy location, along the same plane. definitely worth a try.

You will probably find that its the plastic caps that fit over the end of the pivot balls not allowing the nut to go in correctly.
