I switched the shocks on a mm set up. I also moved all the spacers for the hub carrier to the front to add to the wheel base.

I did the same on my RM4 setup.

I put an oversize washer on the top rear shock mounts to keep the plastic from wearing down. This way the washer takes the beating, not my tower. My shocks are also mounted out at the top and in on the bottom for stability.

I have to say that it is much more stable and fun to drive now with the shocks and spacers moved. Would a stadium chassis work on this?

I got my first chance at driving the buggy w/ MM4 and I absolutely love it. I put the shocks on the back of the arms and ran 1.5 anti-squat. I had been driving the car for over a year as RM3 and I don't see me going back.

I expected the car to drive completely different but it doesn't. It's just a little more precise. It's hard to explain but it turns a bit more crisper and when it gets out of shape it's a lot more forgiving than RM3. With MM4 if you start to loose the backend you simply countersteer a little, get on the throttle, and you're good. With RM3 I felt like I had to be more conservative during a race b/c I knew if I started to loose the backend there was no recovering.

So if you are on the fence about MM, do it.

Are you using the stock chassis with the MM4 set up?

4MM is where its at. Everyone should give it a try and stick with it for a bit, once you find a set up you like, they're much more forgiving to drive.

Can you describe the type of track that you folks run on?

I currently run on a turf track weekly, but run on a big clay track occaisionally and used to run on a low traction dirt track with step pins. MM works on everything contrary to popular belief. XFactory has been doing it for years, and they build fast cars as well

I run my MM4 desc on both large indoor and outdoor tracks and my dex210 has only been on an indoor track so far. I'm sure it'll do just fine outside as well, but I'll be sure to report back.
