Is there a reason for having all those spring perch offsets other than providing options for ride height?

Tall are normally for the truck. Middle are used for the buggy (2wd & 4wd) the majority of the time. The small ones are used for the buggy when a lower ride height is optimal...mainly on high traction carpet/astro. You dont have to thread the collars up all the way (which can cause you to run out of threads) to get to the proper ride height.

For you stock guys...what is your opinion on the MIP 3 gear....i have heard it is a must have. Any noticeable difference when compared to the AE 3 gear?

I know you know my opinion, but I can state it publicly.

For me, it was a no brainer at the price point and the benefit. It centers the motor, and also helps pull heat from the motor. I also needed to drastically add weight to get back legal. The biggest change though, was the mesh. The AE 3 gear is really good, but the MIP is amazing.

The largest change compared to the AE 3 gear was jumping and braking stability.

Thanks, that makes sense. I'm probably going to switch to the short ones. I'm running blue/red springs at 19mm ride height and my rear collars are screwed all the way to the top.

I know, I know. However, I hadn't made a post publicly talking about it.

So I maybe an idiot but how does the mip 3 gear jump and brake different than the associated 3 gear? To me it seems both 3 gear trans should affect handling the same. [ QUOTE=Socket;13925014]I know you know my opinion, but I can state it publicly.

The MIP transmission moves the motor.

Egads....my stock buggy is, well.....stock. I have pucks and a slipper eliminator and that's it. I was able to hang with a mod buggy driven by a pretty good driver the other day. The only thing holding it back is the driver.

Avid makes a motor centering kit for the b4/t4 tranny for 28 bucks including a lightweight topshaft. maybe one is coming for b5/b5m?

So everyone thinks we built a brand new buggy and didn't put the motor where it should be?
