Anyone running the 4 gear rear motor set up? is it more overall grip or just more rear grip?

I run RM4 all the time and it gives more traction overall. It's not a huge difference over RM3 but is noticable.

Started out with RM3 for the first month or two I had the car but I've been running RM4 consistently for the last few months and would agree it's a slight, but noticeable, difference. I'm planning to switch back to RM3 this week just to see if I can make it go any faster...

I run RM4 because it's easier to dial out traction rather than hunting for traction.

TeamSR doesn't sell directly to the public. You need to buy from an authorized dealer.

Thanks guys. They should remove the "add to cart" buttons on their site.

Anyone know if the B4 Lunsford tie rods will work on the buggy? they look like they are just a tad bit longer and can be shaved down a bit.

Didn't want to drop $80 on a complete T.I. kit.

I was wondering about cheaper options for Ti turnbuckles too. Anyone know the average weight saving of the Ti turnbuckles and how much extra you save with the Ti ballstuds?
I haven't had any problem with the standard ballstuds myself so not really ready to change.
