Picture after the mod

Iīm really looking forward to test my car in this setup.
Unless you space the top shock mounts with washers when you run the diffs high it will rub on the mount, the rear one might work but the front will definately have clearence problems.

You need to take some material off the upper bulkheads in front, as spool outdrive sleeves will rub to the bulkheads under the upper link mounting points. A bit of work with dremel tool and itīs fine. Pulley is not even close to the actual shockmount.

And for the top deck:

I wonder the effect of this method same as removing 4 screws (rear:2 / front: 2) from the top deck; as I think both methods would increase chassis flex.

I did this, I have tonnes of steering and the car is very easy to drive. I lower the roll centre (front: 3mm / rear: 3mm), the car is responsive and faster thru the corners. Any1 tried?

I would think the car would tweak easily with only 2 screws in the front

For those cutting your decks, just keep in mind that you can go too far with making the car flex, and if that happens you'll lose corner speed and stability, especially in sweepers

Well it worked really good all over the track on high grip conditions and it was tested with almost 10 different drivers and everyone thinked that it was a big improvemet. So the risk of the mod not working seems to be low, and you can just buy a new top deck for a bit over 10$ to have less flex if needed.
