I noticed a lot of the pro setups use 80-90% brake. i can't get above 40% without spinning out. What gives?

I believe that is 80-90% of whatever they have programmed on the esc. They may only have the esc setup for 50% brake

Should also consider the pro set up listed were being used at big events where traction is very high and anyone usually runs more brake as
grip increases.

on the brake setup.. most pros use very good speed controls and radios... they set everything up at 100% on radio before setting up speed control and then adjust from there.. usually 80% brake is good start point.. then test to get car to work as needed.. you don't want to lock up the back end only slow the car very quickly.. this will give you your fastest corner speed .

What affect does the inline setup give the car?

Is it worth doing? (ESC in cradle)

Speeds up the chassis roll from side to side by centering the weight in the chassis lengthwise.. This also reduces side bite though, which is not a ggod thing for the tracks I run at. I am not a fan unless you run on a track with lots of switchbacks, jumps in turns, or really high bite clay or sugared/carpet surfaces. Sometimes quick handling makes the car way harder to drive IMO.

Quick handling is what mid-motor is all about no?

Picked up the MIP topshaft today and noticed the bi-metal pucks were $62 at my local shop (seems like an absolute steal) so thats next on my list. Looking forward to stripping the car down and giving it its first deep clean and rebuild.

That's a great price and they are perfect for 17.5 buggy. I love my MIP pucks.

well the "hard" parts wont take any abuse. I have broken a front tower and a front bulkhead. That is it.

anyone running on med/high bite with largish jumps? My MM car is just dragging across the ground too much. I can actually see is slow down when it lands from the friction of the chassis on the clay. I am already running 1.6 pistons in the back, but I am running 1.4s in the front with 37.5 oil. grey springs front and white rear.


Also, I picked up an orion r10 pro for my MM mod buggy. And it just seems to run kinda warm to me. I have the radio at 90% throttle and the timing set to 10 deg on my reedy 8.5. I had it at 20 deg, but the esc was getting to 156 deg. It dropped to 140 when I lower the motor timing. I am running 25/75 gearing and a short packs, so around 1620 grams. My viper ran cooler. I am just surprised at the temps. Also my cap is mount to the the heat sink, so maybe less air flow. But i have no where else to put it until i get smaller receiver.

more traction. It moves the arm/hubs forward to put more weight over the rear tires.
