my lunsfords are 1 5/8 long. Not even close to causing a dimple. They all bind.

I've been through two sets of ball cups now and have not had any binding.

Depends on if you feel you need the extra weight. If you run on high bite, probably not. If you run on lower bite, probably a good idea.

I'm of the mindset now that if need to add 40 grams to the rear of the car, I'll just run rear motor. Call me crazy LOL

Using 2.7 oz extra weight under the short pack,not just for traction.
Also for a lower CG which helps smooth out the car on higher traction conditions.

i run square pack in mine it feels better than shorty probably because of low to medium traction. i put some weight on back of shock tower down low above rear suspension holder seemed to make the car not to want to turn kinda pushy

Did someone post a graphical comparison of the 2 front towers, i.e. showing the differences in shock mount positions...? I remember seeing one, just can't find it now...

I have 1 3/4" lunsfords on mine. All the stock cups were fine. Broke one turnbuckle, installed replacement with new rod ends and they bind.
Luckily a quick turn with a 5.7mm ball cup reamer and good to go.

Last time I will chime in about the rod ends.

Using mid tower & flat front arm with inside hole, the

shocks are at the same angle as using rear motor tower middle hole.

Difference is the shocks are lower a couple mm with mid tower & inside tower hole.

Lower makes for lower CG on front .
Makes for smoother steering.

Sorry never seen that graph.

I just thought maybe you were interested.

Where do you buy the thin sheets to fit under the battery?
