Here is what I ran in 17.5 this last weekend at the gold cup

Front Shock:
Carbon Flat RM arms
Stock MM tower
Middle hole tower mount
Outer hole arm mount
White Spring
Stock Piston
37.5 Oil
4mm Shock limiters (this is because I am running the MM tower, which would create too much droop without the extra limiters. the stroke listed below is key)
18mm stroke
23.5mm ride height

Rear
Stock everything, tower/arms/piston with 32.5 oil
Middle hole tower mount
Inner hole arm mount
~26mm stroke (taken from Luke Smith's setup.. i don't recall mine off hand)
23mm ride height
What spring cups are you using?

I have heard some are for more steering. I have a set not yet tested though.

Default This car is amazing!

I have been stuck on my RM car because our two local track are somewhat medium to low traction and tight indoor tracks. My RM car has been rock sold at these two locations, but I had been wanting to build up a MM car to see how well it worked in these conditions.

I hit the track with it for the first time last night and am completely blown away! The MM car did everything better than the RM car did hands down! I struggled with my Centro in these conditions but the B5M is the money!

Current Mod Setup:
Box Stock Setup Other Than These Changes:
Brass C & D Blocks
1.6 Rear Piston with 27.5 Rear Shock Oil
RM Rear Arms
Shorty pack thick pad in front, thin pads in back
Schelle Slipper
Schelle Rear Camber Block
FT Front Pin Brace

I actually need just a little more mid and exit steering on the tight corners but don't want to give up any rear traction. Any suggestions?

I was going to try running 3mm or 2mm trailing on front steering blocks to make front end just a tad more aggressive.

May be parking the RM for good...

Then the shorty battery sits directly in front of the ESC lengthwise.

If you are looking for slightly more rear-tire weight bias, you can run your setup like I do... which is the shorty run horizontally in the back up against the waterfall, and then the ESC dead center right up against the battery. This requires you cut away the section of the chassis pod in-between the battery posts.

If you want a little more weight forward, you can run the battery horizontal against the waterfall, and then run your esc and reciever forward of the battery posts. Or you can even run the battery slightly more forward.

Static weight bias balance is a great tuning aid.
Any chance of seeing your setup? lol

Try going back to the plastic D block or the aluminum one. Helps the car rotate just a smidgen more.

At our track the in line is run mostly by the 17.5 stock racers but there are a
few running in mod also and it works very well in both, the in line setup
works very well on a high bit track such as ours.

Are most just running the shorty rearwards with the esc pushed up against the battery.

I ran mine that way for a couple race nights but had a HELL of time getting the esc and battery to stay stuck to to the chassis. I tried 4 different brands of servo/double stick tape and always had an issue so I went to a different setup. I would say that the PARMA PRO servo tape was the best.
