The vertical ball stud creates more roll center options.

I'm looking to drop weight, and the chassis is the last thing I can do, so getting a longer aluminum chassis isn't going to help that.

What Raul was getting at is you run the risk of breaking ballstuds due to the different angle of stress, and not having an easy way of removing them if you break one.

I'm running a tight indoor carpet track, so I'm guessing I will not benefit from this. I love less hop ups to have to buy.

Turning at low speed, or just in general? I would think it's cogging from a sensorless motor.

i acually drove it on the floor next to me its louder when im doing a left circle

never mind , i moved to the 4m trailing and didn't move one of the washers so my front wheels are rubbing on the ball cup and the esc is coging alot because the controllers trigger is bad and i did overheat it twice so im just waiting for it to go completely ,, should have known when the front end pushes on the tile floor like the wheels arent turned

I started with the stock set-up. Only thing I did different was made the 5 hole piston a 4 hole. I used 27 1/2f and 30r shock oil.

There are many other setups you can choose from for specific conditions as well here.
