Question about the setting bushings.....

on the setting guide it displays a H bushing and L bushing.
is this referrig to the bushings in the front shock tower and that reflects the way you install the rear toe bushings???

The bushing works as follows
H = high roll chassis in the lowest position arms in the high position
L= low roll chassis in the highest position arms in the lowest position
Follow the book and look each bush has a dot on it check the manual to see we're the dot is positioned and it will help you through.
Front front top H bush dot on top
Front back top centre dot
Front front bottom centre dot
Front bottom back dot to the out side
So front top is running high roll chassis low

Rear of the car

Bottom rear toe plate no3 dots opposite bottom left on right rear bottom right on left rear.
Front bottom centre holes

Just the way I have set it up as per manual

I have had all the MP9's and nothing has changed right up to now. Just put together another TKI3 and if anything the diffs we're a little less tight with the one shim in but still slightly tight. After 5 mins on the track the diffs are as free as. Any good grease will do but I have found the Eureka lube to be a fantastic product and you only need just enough to wet the gear teeth. I have never had to replace a pinion or ring gear ever.

Raced this weekend and continue to be impressed with this car. Second race with the tki3. Driving this car is actually fun (after dialing it in for a different track than last week which was easy BTW) because I was not changing the car in between rounds based on track conditions. Not used to that. Spent more time trying to get a buddy of mine tuned in to my old car then focusing on mine.

Glad I joined the Red Army, Merry Christmas!!!

Rear toe bushing and/or setting has absoutely zero effect or bearing on what setting is chosen for front roll centre (the H and L bushings you mention).

I'm not sure what you're trying to say when you mention "chassis in the highest/lowest position" as the front upper arm bushing (H and L) have zero effect on the height of the chassis. There is only one single thing which can change the chassis height and that is the shock spring collars, for setting ride height. Other than that, there's nothing else which can change the height of the chassis from the ground.

Check or measure for yourself, if you have the H or L upper arm bushing, the height of the chassis will remain unchanged. It's not possible for the chassis to move just by changing the height of the (front or rear) camber links.

Also, not every bushing has a dot on it, probably only about half of them do. The rest, one just has to look carefully and judge where/how high the hole is.

With a protractor, I'm measuring about 22-23 degrees. Does this make any sense?
Did I miss the answer or was it posted somewhere?
I'd like to know as well compared to the new 16 degree ones coming out.
BTW, Merry Christmas everyone!
