Sideways battery is very good for lower grip.
Inline rules on higher traction conditions.

Use what works best for you.

Is it normal to have the same setup on the same car but have a totally different feel?

One is mod, and one is stock. It seems like anything I did to the mod car I could not get it to feel like my stock car.

Btw was Spencer running an ae lightened chassis or stock milled out? Im running slrc lightened chassis on my stock car and its unbelievably dialed.
I ran my B5m inline today at the Surf City classic at OCRC it's dialed..the weight is 1500g post pics later

Inline didn't seem to hook up very well on medium bite, but I can see it has its merits on high bite.

Mod car will light up bad driving technique and set up because of the increase speed.

Explains why mod requires more skill to drive well compared to a slower car.

So maybe we have more traction than you.
Have them. Put them on, too much back and forth play, took them off. What shims are you using? Did not have any shims that fit so I went back to the stock arms. I received my aluminum rear hubs yesterday as well. Does the etching face forward, or backward, or does it even matter since they are 0 degree?

I know a guy here bought the V1 rebuild kit by accident, and once built the shock shafts would hardly move at all.

I'm using the X rings in v1 shocks no problem. But also using v1 bushings and spacers.

Inline setup is dialed for me on high bite. Gear diff with 2k oil. Also tried blue csi pistons and the car has never felt better. Been going back and forth between 2 and 3 hole setups and car soaks up bumps like a cadillac with csi. Anyone else tried them?

I didn't have to cut the waterfall brace using short servo.

I tried the inline setup and didn't like it at my track. If anyone wants to buy my cut parts, pm me and we can work out a deal.
