Thanks in advance
Honestly I really don't know. I asked a friend that I trust and what he said was the 2mm offset should yield a bit more rear grip. It has to with the slightly different geometry and the effect that the different offsets have on the roll center. It actually would make sense since I know the Evo car ran the 2mm offset and the Evo2 runs the zero offset. I know that a big thing with the Evo2 was to get the car to turn a bit better so it would make sense that they might change something to loosen up the rear of the car.

I changed over my car from 2mm to the zero offset when the Evo2 was released. I couldn't really tell any difference, but I made the change so my car would be like the new car and could share setups with people.

Yesterday i found out the following

1. Excessive tyre wear next to others. I am running 37 Fronts with 40 Rear are giving me around 7 min run time next to others that are running 15min easily with the tyres still in a good shape.

2. Front left wheel ( the one that has the most traction and beating as we turn mostly right hand side ended up as if i had lots of positive camber event though i am running 3 degree neg camber.

suggestions pleazzzzzzzzzz

Thanks guys

if everybody else is using an equal 37/40 combo, then you are just driving too hard. nothing would make you wear tires at a 2x rate that has to do with setup that would leave you with more than 2mm of wear on almost any surface in 7 minutes.

I go 1.1mm of thread showing past the spring retainer. .4 gap with minimum endplay.

Next time you look for Orion engines, try the Alpha ABI.

I think they have a heavier tray, my car with the heaviest tray from YBSlow (58g maybe?) plus NIMH and 1.5oz of weight and I was coming in at 1726-1730 at nationals. Don't under estimate light servos and titanium screws.
