They need to make the RF block in aluminum so we don't need to go get an aftermarket version, and it should be a LRC version, with an included shim to raise it back to the normal height for HRC. This way 1.5 or 3 is 3 degrees, so we don't need to do math and subtract X - Y.. Make it simple. Add shim or remove shim for HRC or LRC in the front.

Excellent idea.

The only problem with this is shims raise the gearbox. Rcjunky1 makes an aluminum hanger that does this. A friend noticed that the gearbox doesn't quite sit flush with the shims. Even running at 1.5, it was slightly higher. The top deck pretty much brings it down but not flush for the OCD folks. Also he wasn't able to get 3/3 when running mm due to clearance.

tlr22 use that(shim) method for anti-squat,
it uses a shim under the aluminum RF hanger for roll center/anti squat adjustment, and an insert inside the hanger to take up the space between hanger and gearbox.

That chassis may allow for the space. The method isn't bad. I just know it isn't flush in Durango's. Try it. You can probably dremel the gearbox though.

Personally I like the feel of the MM4 on high bite clay with the LRC rear end.
I've run my MM4 setup at SCVRC in SoCal quite a bit and it's pretty dialed. We run slicks when it is wet and when it's dry we usually run Barcodes or something similar. Super soft or clay compound tires. I am also running 18g weight via the Revolution rear suspension hanger.
http://www.revolution-rc.com/our-pro...ion-mount.html I've also been experimenting with the gear diff and about 5K-7K fluid. I've been running this setup for a while and I'm able to carry quite a bit of speed on the faster turns and I still have great low speed steering.

Hope this helps!

I've also run my MM4 setup at OCRC but I've only had a few runs. It seems pretty dialed although initially I was pushing a bit….will post more next time I go!

Revolution makes the LRC mounts already. Complete set includes 3 RR mounts and 1 RF mount at A Main for around $65.

I like RDRP. Only problem is it won't work on a type B chassis. I like being able to share parts with my SC and ST.

What's the issue? Chassis clearance? If so just do a little surgery with the dremel tool.

Each of the RR holders needs to be modified to accommodate the type B motor guard tab.

I've looked around a bit too and haven't seen anything really for the longer chassis. Can anyone speak to what they are using for longer chassis?

I also hate cab forward….ALL OF THEM ARE UGLY!

What are you guys finding the type b chassis to do better than the stock aluminum? Also where in the world can I find the type b in stock?

if you need the chassis and the parts needed to convert to the Type B, order TDRZ2001 at your LHS. The central warehouse shows in stock, the west warehouse should have them soo, its the type b conversion kit, I think its the 3 parts but once I get mine I'll post here. Theres no info on it and its not on Tower's or Durango's site, so its going to be like christmas end of next week or early the following when it should arrive
