Gonna start the build this week. What is the consensus on saddle vs. shorty for medium traction indoor clay/dirt mix?

Both configurations seem to work just fine. In theory the extra weight in the rear might be useful in super low traction conditions.

Looking at getting a ZX6. Anyone give any feedback on performance, durability etc.?
Last couple of pages, you are wanting gear diffs. Why is everyone wanting to go with gear diffs for?

I prefer weight on the front for low traction, the rear does not do a pendulum swing and tracks the front better IMHO. Any one tried a setup with shortys as front as possible?

Performance is insane, so much steering with the box setup that ive had to dial out steering and responsiveness for high grip.
Durability seems good, I broke a servo saver on my first time out, but it was my first time with 4wd mod and I was bouncing off every pipe every corner (crazy compared to 2wd) have not broken any thing since.
Gear diffs are just another option I suppose, ill look into getting them too. Definitely not a necessity though.

I agree that on a 4wd the weight in the rear isn't as relevant as a 2wd, but I also wouldn't be running front heavy either, as to me that would make for a goofy feel over jumps. But, whatever works...

I can say the car feels pretty well balanced with shorty pack, motor back, esc in front of shorty, and servo in front of motor.
