The location of where the pivot ball is is 89 degrees from the horizontal plane, the stock one is 90 degrees. So it gives you more camber rise, and more overall steering, useful on high bite tracks especially.

Was there a V1 of these steering knuckles or just a V2? Does the label specify it?

I ran 1 hour main plus two 5 min qualifiers plus practice this past Sunday. Plus I ran the car like 30 minutes total the day before and the diffs still feel smooth.

I will open up the diffs and check them as I will be traveling to Homestead for the FORGASS race. I'll let ya know what I find. (Probably post pics)

If you have V1 knucles you can flip them so the left is on the right side, and right on the left, and you can shim....

I believe he was asking about the 1 degree knuckles. and they came out after they had updated the threads etc on the original v1 plastics.

if you mean why is the front side of the rear arm shorter than the rear side. it would be because you rarely if ever run toe out on a car like this. so it would make sense to have as much thread engagement as possible. whereby a beveled rear arm would give you what you needed for part integrity. If that makes sense...
