I now im thinking about it my mbx7r eco starting doing same thing (front wheelies) under hard braking and I just increased kick up because I noticed front diving so much. Learn something new everyday!!

what rear sway bar do you use? I run copper and copper front and rear and have like it so much, but car can always be better.

Fyi I have talk to an older retired pro driver about 12 caster and 5 steering and said would make car to lazy and easy to drive. said 5 steering and 10 caster would be perfect for most tracks.

I run copper rear and no front sway bar.

I expect more caster to do what you said but sometimes things work in reverse depending on geometry and other factors.

Any wing recommendations ? Looking at pro-line trifecta pre cut or stock HPI wing. Only thing I didn't like about the stock wing is the wing buttons don't sit flat on it.

I did see the heavy duty molded wings in the really old posts but want to stick to the lexan wings.

The trifecta is a great wing I have it on my rb6 and use the sworks 104 wing on my d413 and my buddy uses the sworks on his b44 and we both agree best 8 bucks ever spent.

Don't mind the stock wing. Has be solid for me. Pre-cut Proline Trifecta is great though.

Do you have the exotek wing mounts though ? The buttons don't sit flat on the wing unless you run it in low position.

Does anyone know the availability of the aluminium shock standoffs (pn #115136), is there anywhere that stocks them? One of mine is badly bent.

The Proline Trifecta can't be used in the low position with the Exotek wing mounts and buttons. The buttons interfere with the profile of the wing.

Cant find them anywhere. So i use the ones from the d815 in front. Much beefier and puts the shocks a couple of mm forward. #67202

Yeah its a bit overkill.... but i think they are better. They also stop the front to rear movement of the shocks, so i might put them on the rear to. There is way to much movement after a couple of runs with the ones supplied with the alu shock caps.
