I got a set of Kyosho blank shock pistons and want to try 4 hole 1.3. Want to get those Losi pistons out lol....

You obviously did not race against the great Dias (stock King of WCRC)

Nice job and that car is dialed at WCRC.

Never driven a TC or mid motor, is it less likely to spin out at the back because the weight is in the center? Thanks,

More likely to spin out in low traction. The advantage is rotation, you can corner at speeds unlikely in a rear motor and carry that momentum. And also mid motors jump like a dream can correct the nose a lot easier mid air than a rear motor with throttle input.
