I've done both. I've found that the RM3 is easier to adjust the nose of the car in the air. RM4 you must get on the brakes faster to get the nose to drop...

Yeah it's a trade off. The RM4 setup is really good at one of my local tracks where forward bite is always at a premium. But the balance means a slight loss in car control.

If you setup a jump correctly you shouldn't have to do much throttle control in the air. Letting off the throttle just before the front wheels leave the jump will unload the rear-end and the car will start arching instead of launching off the jump.

I'm going to try RM4 on Wednesday along with getting used to my new M11 radio. My track got better but would still love some more rear traction. Need to rebuild my shocks again this week.

For those on the factory 6 hole pistons, are they really noisy? My rears, although not tight, they make a lot of noise against the shock bodies. My fronts are really quiet.

Thanksa lot.

Start with Jorn's carpet setup from the recent ETS race. It's posted on the TD site.

Jörns got stuff that others haven't being a team driver, I like Chris Slevins , Craig Collinson, David Poulter or Nathan Waters setups they are pretty similar

Yes, you are indeed correct.. But because I'm human, I have difficulty nailing this technique time and time again, especially under pressure.
What I have found helps is, if you add a reasonable amount of drag brake, you can basically go back the same style you were doing with RM3.

Yeah, and his driving style looks really agressive as well. Point-and-shoot. Not like any other 10th driver I've seen. If I remeber correctly, he's got his 210 set up with a 5.5 turn. It was really cool watching him handle his Dingos at DHI though. I believe he lapped me twice in the 5 minute practice heats...

got my durango yesterday..had to build it MM3 because the seller didnt include the tranny parts for the 4 gear configurations..so much for "new, built, never ran, with all the extras"...I am liking the fact that an Xerun speedo WITH the fan fits under the shell..next on the list a decent servo for it and the 4 gear parts that I am missing.

It was built RM3 when I received it..The guy claims to have not known those parts were supposed to be therebut this is after the ad claimed HE bought it and built it, then I find out that someone else bought it and built it and sold it to the fellow I bought it from..I did get a good price on it considering it never had electronics in it, but for whats missing I should have just bought a NIB kit..few other tidbits missing also(toe inserts for R hubs,caster inserts for the c-hubs)..Like i said .. so much for "new, built, never ran with the extras" I think i may request a partial refund after I tally the cost of the parts that were supposed to be there...And yes I did go COMPLETELY through the car before loading electronics in...the diff was horrible..smooth as silk now though..
