Per a new lipo testing thread that is pretty intense and in depth, Orions are waaaaay over priced and actually have more IR than quality less expensive packs.

Do you guys think the Pro-Match 3500mah pack will be enough? It's 60 grams lighter than the 4800 pack. I'm coming from 1/8 scale and weight loss seems to be very beneficial in this class from what I've been reading here.
Some weight loss can likely be beneficial if you're running stock and can consistently keep all 4 tires on the dirt. If not, don't worry about the weight; the car kind of drives easier with more weight like square or saddle lipo pack.

0 toe. The car seems to have better traction in my experience with camber closer to 0.5 and/or no more than 1 degree. Check and see how your tires are sitting on the surface when you go to check ride height / camber. This seems to work well for me so I can put max tire tread to the ground.

Yeah he's always trying different things but almost ALWAYS goes back to the same setup after a few runs.

When I look up the flat front arms it says to use the regular shock tower. What is the mystery "flat" front shock tower. Is it the b5r tower?
