    Stock pinion angle is -2 I believe.

    Having adjustable lower control arms enables you to move the rearend front to back or vice versa, it doesn't change the pinion angle. The only way to adjust the pinion angle is by having an adjustable torque arm I think.

    Read this thread here to answer your question on the setting for drag racing.
