I tried 3x1.4 front/yellow/35 and 4x1.3 rear/gold/30 and it was great. Got in nice and didnt swing the rear around on exit.

I'm not sure of there reason for doing it but I tried it and it helped on corner exit. I had problems getting back on throttle exiting corners and after several changes including shaving the arms it drives very consistent.

I shaved the front and rear. If you shave it down and don't like it you can always add spacers and space it back out. I was worried about it weakening the arm but after some horrible crashes it's still held up well.

I changed my whole car over to the tlr ball studs with the with the 2mm hole on top and just made holes in my kyosho ball cups. The tlr ball studs come in 6mm or 8mm length.

Did you then move the arms toward the center for a shorter wheel base?? I'm also searching for a little bit of grip coming out of corners. I have to wait to square up staight then throttle it or it will want to kick out a little.
