I tq'd and won 17.5, but a few of the regular fast guys weren't there, and they can run as much as .5ths faster than I was able too, so I need to get some more steering.

What are the wheelbase settings for the 5R and 5M arms, I know the R can produce a shorter wb, but how much 1 or 2 mm?

I need to work on a bit more mid corner steering without loosing too much rear bite.
The RM rear arms shorten the wheelbase by 1.5mm.
