I actually made a cantilever/nerf bar to put weight on the extreme right side of the car. Brushless equipment is kinda heavy.

The softer arms give you more traction while you loose a small amount of "predictability". I'd personally recommend the stock kit, with ITF top deck mounted with 4 rear orings to dampen it a bit.

I'd like to see what some of the factory guys would recommend in that situation.

Do you have gearing info for the different motors such as a NOVAK 10.5?

yea thats 64 pitch. you have to run a crazy tall gear for the 17.5's. with the brushed motor im at 116/35 but the 17.5 is a totaly diffrent animal. 90/50 was the best trade of gear/motor temp. it really wants more gear (bigger pinion) but the motor gets too hot. start at 90/50 and go from there

what kind of help do you need? The 4 o-rings allow just a little more flex which give the car a little more over all grip. Do you just not understand how the mod is done or what it's for???? I'm sure that someone on here will get your question answered.
