The lower the ratio number the more pack, the higher the number is less pack
Also, given the same ratio eg. (using the same ratio of lets say 5.3 the 4x1.3 will pack more over larger jumps than 3x 1.5) More smaller holes is better on larger jumps, bigger holes are better for bumps.

Dino D thanks for this information. This table will definately be going into my setup book. Also, I used your mid motor setup on my DESC210 this weekend. I have to say it has never rotated that well before. I have a couple tweeks to make to it but qualified 3rd out of 21 in stock truck. Thanks for your help

Default Looking for m4 scrubs

Looking for m4 scrubs for the dex210. Would rather have new but if you have them mounted that's fine. Send me a message if your willing to sell them.

I may have found a situation where MM4 works for me. Our track was just redone and the new layout is quite old school. No huge ultra super mega jumps but tons of whoops and rough sections. You only get full throttle on the front straight which is about 1/4 of the track. This is how a track should be! The layout itself is fairly simple. It is a U shape with only 180's. It is an outdoor dirt track that will pack in quite nicely over time but will retain a slick top layer of dust off line when dry. There aren't any high speed sweeping turns. In reality MM may have no advantage here which removes any MM3 cornering advantage. Then again if there is no real advantage with MM here, RM3 may be the way to go. Acceleration is needed and throttle modulation over the jumps. There are 9 consecutive jumps in the whoops section! MM4 may actually be the ticket here. At least in MM. The last layout was better for RM3 and the previous MM3. I love variety and a car that will allow me to adapt!

I might just go back to RM3 but I'll try MM4. I've always hated it before.

I had better luck with less anti-squat (0) in MM. Its going to be a tough job trying to use the same set-up on dirt and carpet, unless the dirt is the highest of bite IMO..

I've had better luck everywhere, in any config, with 0 anti-squat. Maybe I'm just weird like that. I've always felt it makes the car more neutral and a bit more predictable to drive.

Yeah, 0 feels good in most cases, but a few times I have went up to 3 on our track to sacrifice a little side bite so I could get a tick more forward. We had a quick little double right out a corner, and the difference was measurable, 0 wouldn't get you over it, 3 made it easily. It really depends on what the track (grip) will let you get away with..

Just picked up a super clean 210 used to run mod with. A friend was telling me that amezcua won chi town in rear motor? Anyone know where that setup might be posted?
