Running mod the weight under the shorty is a huge help!

Drilling the 3rd hole in the front arms just like the b5 is huge as well!! This helps so much on med to high grip. Just increase the the front droop 1-1.5mm
I'd like to see pictures if you can

I never can get pics to upload from my phone. It's just a 3rd outer hole. Same as we did on the 44.3 and b5's. Drill the hole the same distance apart as the other two are. Then use a cone dremel bit to take away material so that the shock eyelet can go in and move freely. I also use a fresh xacto to trim it a bit finer. This calms the steering a ton and it's way smoother to drive. I and a lot of the team have been running this for a solid year.
Also remember to add 1-1.5mm of droop into the front shock.

Nice info. Thanks.

Was looking at the JC, but those look pretty cool as well.

Yokomo saddle type weights. They're 25g apiece and fit perfectly side by side in the T5. Just search Amain. That's where I picked mine up

Since cutting the cross braces is not reversable what is the benefit and do I really want to do this on a high bight clay track running slicks? (RC Clubhouse)

We have done this on the b5,t5 and sc5 on any and all conditions. It allows the chassis to flex in the correct way. You'll notice in the B6 none of these braces exist.

Just remove some material from the slot in the waterfall where the strap goes in. I also took some off the lip of the strap
