Hardly ever run the one in the steering bridge, never tried taking the one in the motor mount out, does it make much difference to the handling?

On low to medium grip it does help a lot with traction because the car generate more side flex on the chassis.

So on medium to low traction tracks completely take out the steering bridge?

Thanks for your info
Have you tried the shocks on asphalt? Do you think they'll work just fine?

From what I know, LTCR is good for asphalt not carpet

Yes indeed. With the one on steering bridge attach the car has good initial response and quick on chicanes. Combine with removed the one attach to motor mount the car feel somewhat forgiving and provide good traction even on somewhat low grip track
The combination will take away a bit of high speed corner but you'll get more stable at the rear for a change

I don't know for carpet but for asphalt I do the other way around, remove one on the motor mount and use one on the steering bridge

I only race on asphalt and I think the car got plenty of cornering speed and stability the way it is
Does Yokomo got ARS option?

I don't see why it wouldn't work on a not so bumpy asphalt track and technical. I have yet to try it because the asphalt tracks I race at are parking lots and bumpy. Take notice, the short shocks do come with spring holders that let the springs sit closer to the track surface. I also believe running a lot of droop is a factor with short shocks, the window is smaller compared to standard, thus the reason behind running the Slf shorts on a smoother surface with less droop.
