I was hoping to try MM but it seems like the majority of the setups online use RM3 or 4 and only saw one with MM3(Lutz) for indoor clay.

I'm going to get my 210 soon and need a great baseline setup. Thanks.


Also, where are you guys getting tapered pistons from: GHEA, RC Shox, Oople,etc? What should I use front/rear: 1.2,1.3,or 1.4 & 2,3,4 hole?
TD has a set-up on their website for WCRC from Carson. MM in the US will mainly be carpet unless the dirt has beaucoup traction. TD is coming out with tapered and double tapered (?) pistons.

On top still, you remove the previously used bump stop washers from it though.

Note that this can change if you play with caster settings.

Do you really need that much weight? My car is locked as is with a shorty pack in it. With that much weight in the back of the car, reminds me of my Schumacher Cougar SV.. talk about rear weight....

Instead of shifting weight with foam blocks, you add additional weight to "shift" weight??? kinda defeats the purpose of running a shorty pack. I like Orion as well but this doesn't make sense, but I am old and feeble.

I'm not a big fan of this. If i'm not gonna run a shorty pack, i'd rather run a full size pack with more punch and run time..

And that's not even mentioning their overrated, overhyped C ratings. Kinda funny that one of my 2 year old 5000 40C packs was noticeably faster in my stock sc than my buddy's 2 week old 5000 90C. He didn't believe me until I gave him one of my packs to try... Great motors, overrated batteries.

Yeah i just asked that same question a few posts above. I'm curious to try it myself since the most complain the 210 is rear heavy and lacks steering. Maybe the MM4 is the way to go to shift weight forward along with the shorty pack.

Its Horrible!!! dont waste your time unless you are on high bite carpet. i spent two weeks trying every thing i could, switched to RM4 and went 2 seconds quicker. it did jump awesome and turned great but you could not put any amount of power to the ground. may work ok with maybe a 17.5 but never tried it.

So basically, MM4 has TOO much steering and no stability? Bummer. RM it is.

I just drive my cougar instead ... But really did not find the need to run MM maybe once the indoor season starts again.... our current tracks got a lot of straights and few 180s.... so not many sweepers like last years layout so RM driving style suits the track...
a guy was testing it few weeks back.. but he did not have it dialed in suitably (the MM3/4 dunno) it was slower overall than the b4.1s on track
