Do you have a plan to compensate for the lack of rear weight bias which is generally required for RWD RCs to handle properly?

They should. I've always had good experiences with Boca's ceramic bearings.

Default Changing front drive shaft.

So I was tearing down the Rey before I gave it its first run just to make sure stuff was nice and tight and found out that the front driveshaft is bent. I ordered a new one but need to know if I have to pull off the whole front end to get to it? Any help would be appreciated thank you.

It's been a while since I've had to work on mine, but I think removing the center gearbox will be easier because you don't have to futz with the steering assembly.

I found i had trouble with the bearings in the rear diff... Couldn't handle a 3s with only about 4 uses. Overheated, seized then melted the diff housing. Luckily there was no damage to the diff gears. Have you found an alloy upgrade yet?

Anyone having samilar issues. Its lasting me about 7-8 battery cycles on 2 cell before it blows.

They look like TV mounts. I've seen others using wooden rods before.

yes - they are DVD mounts. "AMOS DVD Wall Bracket" from Amazon. You can adjust the width of the arms which is useful.
