If tires are ok
Move battery forward a little.
In your best guesstimation how long would you think this takes? tires seem to take a long time to break in there. How could one speed up this process?

Let us know how it worked out.
Doh! no saddles or ballast weight. I know I should not have sold that saddle pack I had lol... I also see where a lot of the team guys are running the aluminum camber mount low. Is that just a matter of flipping it and adding the 3mm of washers? Sorry to be a bug, but it was a handful today.

Running a standard sized shorty, all the way back, standard sized servo, as stated typos (clay compound), B5 front arms and tower (both cars), 2X1.6 pistons with 32 1/2 front, 30 rear. My setup is just not working very well at all. Any thoughts? I have all of the aluminum stuff for it, but have not put it on yet. Car felt like it was skating through the turns and not carving them like my other mid-motor cars have in the past.
are you running the Rm rear arms also? the car is very heavy. should not need a lot of weight even for mod. I dont know your track, but tires here need a certain amount of wear. Seem like the tires need to be ghost pins. I was also told to shave off the outer edges of my rear tires for side bit. Most of the mod guys here run clay slicks as well. Even some stock guys. So maybe we have more traction than you.

Makes for more roll & less grip I believe. Free's up the rear end for improved handling.
Intresting....wont this change the anti-squat also?

Try raising your roll center to get the car to come around.

does not effect the squat , both blocks get raised 1 mm.

Only try if your interested in less traction & wish to free up the car .

Thumbs down

Definitely not new. Guy with a 3d printer has been making 1mm offset pills in SoCal for quite some time now. Can go up or down with them. He makes Schelle slipper eliminators too as well as other things for b5's. Welcome to the party. I'm sure it'll take off just as well as the inline electronics setup has.

Oh what's that I see? Spencer rivkin with a lightened chassis? Hmmmm so much for needing those lead plates.

The inline setup is an absolute joke! Thats the worst setup to run on the car. Its funny how only 1 post wh0re thinks its the best ever and adding weight blah blah blah.. i have yet to see an actual legit ae driven run that setup.

Btw was Spencer running an ae lightened chassis or stock milled out? Im running slrc lightened chassis on my stock car and its unbelievably dialed.

I think the inline has some potential, just don't have the time to dremel up my car and test.

I've driven both inline and stock battery configurations back to back Thursday night , same battery same setup essentially.. Stock setup would stall out and was a bit slower turning. I prefer the inline.

When I had my rb6's... I preferred inline as well
