Thats a good idea. The only problem would be that the battery has bumps on the bottom of the pack so you would have to shave them off.

True, but I think the lipo pack can be flipped upside down or the plate can be machined to accept the bumps (I'm sure Jason can use one of his fancy milling machines )

Don't flame me if my thinkin' is slowwww
Any confirmation on this?

I understand your confusion. The shims give you the static caster. The upper arm mounts affect the amount of reactive caster the car will have. Check this out.

Go to page 16. I hope this helps.

It will make the car more twitchy when the suspension is compressed as that is when the caster decreases. The original idea was to make the car smoother on the entrance and exit of the corner and more aggressive in the center.

Sounds great. When can the people that emailed you early expect to settle up?
