i believe if you look up the hoody set up guide it has a great write up about this, i only tell u this because not many people no much about that option because xray is the only manufacturer to supply the parts, maybe theres more but i havnt heard of any others buggies with that option. give it a look and let us no what u find out.

From Xray book-
Smaller front gear

Recommended for slippery tracks
Gain more overall steering and makes car easier to drive
Rear end follows the car around

I tend to use it a fair bit in my 808. As my local, track has a few tight sections. And I like to be able to whip the rear round but yet, keeping it in control.
