They are pretty good out of the box. I ran mine for the first time on Saturday. Local track had a trophy race. Had a good run first round that held up for TQ. Wrecked once in the main, ended up like 4th. I'm going to start with FT shock parts (x rings). Super loose outdoor track btw.

so it depends. Stock or Mod. For stock, your probably going to want to drop 100+ grams of weight. Your going to want the AVID triad slipper, MIP/AE alum top shaft, maybe cut gears, Alum screw kit, TI turnbuckles and maybe the ALum rear camber plate. Oh yeah, the xrings are very good. The traxxas blue or AE clear work the same

Mod is easier on parts, check out associated site and look at the teams sheets they have all the parts listed they run. Stock different story because of the weight and need to get down to be fast or so we all think, say or do.

How do you install the rear motor arms on the mid motor? I haven't seen any real clear photos or instructions.
Is it just putting the left on the right and vice versa? I lined them up with standard arms like that and can't see the difference, except screw hole for hinge pin is on different side.

Something I'm missing? Do you flip them so they hang down instead of up?

The track is a med bite outdoor hard packed . as the track keeps more moisture in the eve that's when it pushes the worst. Tires are green rips with open cell and green hybrids

Try a stiffer rear spring first.
