Is there any advantage to angling the shocks out or in with the stock tub chassis? I like the look of them positioned on the outer holes so the shocks form a v shape. I just wondered why Tamiya give the option of mounting them this way.

The more you angle them, the softer they become. I think "progressive" is the right term. I made new mounting holes for mine to make them really lean (angle) over and got a lot more flex out of it too, but there's a balance to be made. The last time I re-did my suspension I had to stand them up again as the truck leaned over too much in turns.
