To be clear and to allow more tuning confusion, either arm works with either tower.

Hah ok! I'm looking at the arms, and my brain just kept saying "Nothing should stop these from fitting on". Then A-Main Hobbies had the same part number for the shock tower for mid and rear, and confused me further.

At any rate, looking forward to getting in a long but hopefully productive tuning day at OCRC tomorrow. Brushing up on roll center adjustments and all that stuff right now.

What adjustments would you guys make to give this car a tad more steering? Seems a bit pushy to me

My buggy is near the setup I want but I have one problem, I feel as if the weight shifts forward to fast when I press on the brake before entering turns so I slide sometimes. Would going to a heavier front shock weight oil help slow the weight transfer?

I went to 3mm trailing, and 1 mm under the inner fron ball stud. Also running a shorty all the way forward with pink kyosho springs. Everything else is kit setup. Worked awesome.

They laid down the rear shocks at the top instead of bottom like I tried. Also from this setup, white AE springs all around seem to be a popular combo. Some even going stiffer up front (AE gray). Seems everyone is going to 1.6 rear pistons right away. Inner rear ballstud washers seem to be popular at 0 or 1mm. 35 front oil seems to be popular as well, and 30 out back. Seems most everyone on any med to high bite tracks having success is running the exact same front end setup, although 3-hole 1.4mm pistons up front seem to be around.
