You should always run some rear negative toe in (rear wheel poiting inwards). However, run as little as you can get away with. That's what Serpent says.

You can download the setup book from mytsn.

Initial rear toe-in setting is really whatever suits your specific driving style. Most people like 2 or 2.5 deg of toe-in whereas I will sometimes run as little as 1deg on some tracks to get the rear round faster.

The less toe-in you have the less stable the car will be for control. So I would suggest starting at 2deg and then adjusting it whichever way you need to suit

You will want the 23 horn. It will fit. Do it slowly.

baller360, where do you live?

If you can find the 710 at $359 or less, get it even at $30 shipping. The rumour is that the price will go up as the Euro strengthens.

Know that those poor snakes in the UK are having to pay anything between GBP 345 to 390!

baller360, that's a difficult question to answer. Are you residing in US? I hear that Ashford is pretty reasonable but no where near the price you're asking. Perhaps somebody else here will know better...

I'm not familiar with the size of the JR receiver. A few post back, somebody had the same problem fitting his receiver in the receiver box. Ended not using the backplate of the receiver box if I'm not mistaken.

Here's a little tid-bit to share. I have long favored the disc wheels over the spoked ones, because they bend, and rarely break. With these Serpent wheel nuts, they are very bend resistant. BUT, (there's always a BUT), The off set is NOT the same as the spoked wheels. There is barely clearance between the dish wheels and the arm of the steering block, but perhaps 0.5 to 1 mm clearance with the spoked wheels.

baller360, you and me are in an even worse shape because the Euro is definitely going up and on top of that the US$ is dropping!

It IS good investment sooooo go get a few!
