I'm really sorry to hear about the alignment issues. I can put you in touch with Zach on Facebook if you want. He's their rep at all the shows and worked for them for years. He's also the one in their recent Youtube video explaining how to adjust the alignment with tabs. I bet he can help.
Me, I'm taking forever to change out my hubs and install the Viper front calipers. I truly hate how complicated the rear suspension is.

He and his side kick are the source of the incorrect info! I got a darn masters degree on changing those tabs now TD. He flat told me to change all tabs (camber and caster arms) to max negative camber tabs and then the toe would magically flip to toe out. That seemed geometrically possible to me, it behaves that way in the rear. Because he uses his own LX for autox. I got a specific text message if anyone wants to see, because I wanted to confirm before I waste my valuable time on a weekend. That is why I am so pissed at them right now, I am about to rip those expensive front arms off and ask for lots of money from them.

I deleted all the previous. After you change the camber for road racing to max negative camber, you MUST adjust the toe. No use bitching about it. They just did not tell us that was necessary, and told me what would happen to the toe backwards!

Done and it seems on the money. I will look forward to trying it out this week.

Me, I've been a fan of the KISS principle. Better brakes and bigger tires. I've ignored most other things. The rest just keeps working.

It got too strange, without changing the toe settings, the changes that could be accomplished would not be worth it. Now we shall soon see if we can help the outside shoulders on these more sensitive tires. We will talk soon. In the end, the front toe setting change may be more easy than the rear WITH the tabs and spending large cash! I can do it in the pits in about ten minutes, maybe less.
