Well you do it to the front to stop the stripping, and you do it to the rear so you dont have underdrive in the transmission.

That chassis looks really cool, seems like quite a few companies in J-Land are grinding down the CG on the 3mm chassis'

cool, would that give you better acceleration? Also, in the gear boxes should the smaller gear be TC3 or tb evo 3?

show me some pics as soon as ur don't because i would like to give it a try aswell, because i like running one-ways.
