If a track is really blown out. I take away droop. I try to get my chassis to hit before my whole buggy get sucked down into a hole. Motorama is a good example of blown out. It will go from brand new to blown out in a day. When i first got on that track i was running more droop. End of the weekend I had take some away
If im on a really dusty and loose track where traction really isnt any where. I might add a little bit to let the car role more. It wont be as reactive but it will let it feel like it had a little more traction.
Everything else is just in between.

Do bodies for the 6r fit on the 7r? Like the jconcepts finisher for example?

Is it safe to assume any mbx7 eco body will fit the 7r eco? I know the guards are different but not sure if the outside profile is changed?

I ran the 6eco Bulldog on my 7eco, no problems. 6 is a little narrower, but tot an issue.

I think the aluminum servo saver is always a good upgrade. I also run carbon fiber top plate on all of the ones I've owned.

The under-drive ring and pinion will also be a great option for low bit tracks...
