Default Xray RX8 setup sheet question

Iím looking at the setup sheet of a pro driver and he has his Eccenter set up differently from the initial stock position. Iím confused on what the setup sheet position is telling me to do with the eccenter. is it the shape of the hole I should angle down and to the right? or is it the little notch thing that is angled down and to the right?





Thanks

It looks like the eccentric bushing that you use for belt tension on the cars. Itís the same principle and raises or lowers the axles for roll center. I donít think it comes with the kit, at least my shepherd didnít

Can you guys kind of explain what the car will do differently in each of the 5 positions?

On the tray withe the bushings 1 is for the front oneway axle and the other 2 are for the wheel shafts.

I think the most noticeabel is that you can set the wheel base to short, middle and long. When you position the bearing low/high you can drive large and small tires w/o changing the setup.

Yes, but wouldnít it change roll center in different positions? The one for the front one way is usually shaped different to tighten belts.
