Hey guys with the new chassis and other light weight bits being produced, will the car accelerate much harder, the likes of the RC8, MP9, MBX6?

Also re: traction roll do I need to reduce droop on both front and rear or just rear.

Thanks

Kind of depends on the track. I usually have my pit guy take a 2.0 and adjust the droop while practicing. I only take out about a 1/4 turn at a time. If you want more on power steering, then lower the rear droop a bit more than the front which will give you more rearward weight transfer.
On high bite tracks you want as little droop as possible but still need the car to be smooth off the jumps and through the rough...There is kind of a fine line.

It takes some time to get it right but when you do your car will be perfect. Once I have my base indoor set up (shock oil, springs, diff oil etc...) I never change it. I only adjust the droop for track conditions = more droop when drying out less droop when wet.

Just don't get the extened one. The screw hole on the xtended front mount won't match up, unless you want to drill the chassis
