Just a tuning option for different tracks. I dont want 2 2wd buggies. I like the way the MM works in most conditions. If i can make a quick bolt on tune that works, im all for it. My last time out was my 1st run with this car. I loved it but the car could step out in a few spots where the RM didnt. Overall, car is great, i would just like a little more rear bite. Hell, it may suck. i will let you know. Im not too proud.

Is it worth going to the 3+1 over the 3+2 on a smooth med-high track?

What difference should I feel?

Also while I"m asking I'm currently running
1.6/1.6
35/30

If I ran:
1.4x3/1.6
35/30

Also again what difference will I feel?

the difference is 1 degree less anti squat.
Car will gain a little more side bite & a little less forward bite.
Car will feel more planted in sharp corners & smoother exiting turns.

Assuming the 1.4 x 3 are for front shock.

Car will gain more steering mostly.
You feel it compared to the 1.6 x 2

Have you tried the rear arms from the RM car? I found a nice increase in rear traction on power with those on medium to low grip.

Default CVA binding up

Hello all,

I am new here and am currently building my first RC10. Im having a blast and can't wait to drive it but I ran into a problem last night when getting the rear turnbuckles installed, the left rear arm binds up when it move it upwards. It appears as though the CVA is running into the thrust T nut on the diff... But I am concerned about over tightening my diff as I seemed to have gotten it set correctly per the sticky on the top of the forum.

According to the manual I should be able to tighten it "until the spring is fully compressed" which should resolve my issue, but I don't want to damage the diff balls. Anyone else run into this issue? And suggestions? I considered sanding down the t nut as well.

Well tonight, I get to play with a 8.5 in my MM car. It was too heavy at stock weight for 17.5, IMO. Now lets she how well it hold rear bite with a mod motor.
