1's with 0 you will not be able to keep it straight on a long track like ours at a high rate of speed.

Yes, the FG is adjustable via the turn buckle style they used, I only ran with a slight toe in/toe out , I never took a measurement to find the exact degree that worked best for me, but for drag racing it does not need to be so technically advanced where you need to adjust it on the dime.

Zero degree toe in/out hurts forward bite and high speed stability. I personally use 2's and have messed around with 0 degree. Both worked for me but off the line you get more wheel spin with zero.

I have tried zero degree hubs on my drag car and it was hard to drive straight in addition to the wheelspin. For my driving habits it was not good!
