Moving the rear hubs up or back,, what does this do for the cars handling? Can someone explain this? Thanks

moving the hubs back takes weight of the rear of the car and give more exit corner steering.
going to the upper hole on the rear hubs is like raising the roll center on the tower.

Gives more exit steering because that weight off the rear(like mentioned) translates into more weight on the front to hold the front tires on the ground better under power. Less wheelie effect This is also putting more weight on the front all the time, so I feel you get better corner entry steering too when the track is low traction. I pretty much run my rear hubs/arms all the way back unless the track is really high bite, although the longer wheelbase should make the car less twitchy when it is high bite, so I may just leave the car long the next time I'm on a sticky track.

edit: ever notice how long the new Losi 2.0 is? It's LOOOONG. They work really good too.

Keep in mind, if you go too far back, you lose out on traction.

not really.

moving the hubs up or down changes both the forward traction and side bite.

I cant remember what height does what, but one hole will reduce side bite and increase forward traction, compared to the other. In contrast, the other hole will increase side bite and decrease forward traction.

The further back or longer the wheel base.....you loose traction? I've heard that before, why is that?

Less weight over the rear axles, more pronounced in electric 2wd.
