What!? Not sure about the link between SkyRC and REEDY, but they are all made in China to some specification or another. What matters are the FETs, Boards, and software. That makes the REEDY unique.

yep all true. the firmware features will probably be the same though. I said there were differences, lol. solder posts in the back and i am sure Reedy used better than avg parts.

If I wanted more on power steering but didn't really want to change the off power steering, what would you guys suggest doing?

A little more anti-squat
A little less front droop

Another rumour or do you have proof its based on those? Don't just state because the casing looks the same either please. Means nothing about the internals.

So I'm currently running:
3+1

And 2 mm spacers in the front shocks.
What would you guys suggest changing?

If I changed anti squat I would have to go back to the plastic toe blocks cause my track doesn't have the arm mount inserts.

Inside source. dont worry about it. Does not matter who makes it, just how it performs.

You could also move your rear hubs back for a slightly longer wheel base...

To get more steering I have done a few things, moved hubs back with RM arms, and then you can lower the rear inner link to flipped with 1mm. Usually on the front you can go to axle up to get more front grip. Hope this helps!

Trying to set ride height. When i get it right one shock spring adjuster is twice as low as the other. What should I be looking for to remedy this problem?

One shock collar is TWICE as low as the other? Has to be either mismatched spring cups, or mismatched springs.

I agree, Cup or spring is wrong. Should be easy to find once you strip them down and compare parts.

FWIW, I am loving my inline setup. One of the really fast guys in Expert stock at my local track is running a 15.4 best lap. My best lap was a 15.7 and he is a MUCH better driver than I am. So for me, this setup is working well.
