I run what the fast guys run....it seems to work :-)

Just an idea of what they used to run, this year may be different....post in the track thread and ask perhaps....

Front: cut open cell JC And1 foam with cut JC green v1 barcodes
Rear: AKA closed cell foam and cut JC green v1 barcodes

Bah, you gotta make it on a race day, LOL....JK....I havent been their this year yet but there will be plenty of racers for you to ask Thursday night, or ask Mike @ Blaze, he has all the tires you need...I hear the new AKA's are working well but very few have them, AKA rebars as well in SS and m4 PL Ions also.

What's the effect of flipping the rear arm when changing from RM to MM? Its on manual but it seems geometry is the same?

The single hole side is basically in between the 2 hole side if that makes sense.

What is the biggest difference between running saddle packs or Shorty pack?

Shorty is more responsive and good if your car has lots of bite or traction. Saddle is good when the surface is kinda of loose or difficult to get traction on.

The shocks mount to the front of the arm in RM but the back of the arm in MM. Basically in MM, the shock tower gets mounted where the motor used to be so the shocks get mounted from the rear.

**the arm itself gets mounted the same direction though.

What part number would that arm be? What's the purpose of it? I'm running MM.. will I need to get a rear hub or can use the stock ones?

um521-1 is the part number. No need to change anything else. Keep in mind that this arm does not require shims on the inner suspension pins like the stock arm does.

You are right, if you are trying to copy someone's setup. I should have mentioned that, my mistake.
