In general are you all running the shorty pack for loose conditions or only high bite?

I haven't ran mine yet but he said if its low grip you can also run the lightweight arms, and he only uses the shorty 4s pack in all conditions. From what everyone says the and in my own experience with other escales, the lighter battery packs feel better because they have less pendulum effect

Sounds good thanks for the info!

Curious, it looks like the MBX8TR Eco is setup to use a shorty too, is that common on those or are folks using a fullsize pack there, assuming mains are only 10 minutes. And if you all are using a shorty , are you all going still will a full size truggy motor or a buggy sized one?

Alright everyone, just bought an MBX8 Eco with the R rear end installed, looking over the buggy and it has Universal driveshafts front and rear which look to of been option parts for this buggy as it would of come with CVA's stock - for Astro racing am I better off keeping the Universals on, or pick up some CVA's?
