I really like the stock axle design...never been a fan of the clamping hubs.
i have had no trouble with anything, on mid or rear motor. i have them both

I've been running between the gray front and green front springs depending on how much front end bite I need and how rough the track is.

On the rear I've been sticking with white. Please note I'm running with a ultra shorty pack with a running weight of around 1510g, running weight when at OCRC without added weight is around 1490

If you're running with a FULL SQ pack on a high bite clay track like OCRC then I would say you REALLY need to go up on the springs from the stock ones, like bad!
What battery is getting you down that light? I can't get below 1560 with a reedy shorty...

5. To be honest I haven't run it yet though. I used to run 66/32 in my b4.2 and never had issues.
