The RM rear arms get swapped side for side so they sweep forward more......I THINK??

Yup that is correct, you run them backwards from how you would on the RM.

With the KYO guys running 25deg total caster most of the time, curious if anyone has tried 25deg kick w/0 caster? Maybe it might help the push we fight with mid motor.

No, the rear towers are model specific and are not interchangeable. The B5m rear tower will work with either MM and RM rear arms.

Why do the RM rear arms provide more traction than the MM rear arms?
