I know, It looks kind of stupid. I don't know if I'm doing it right, but when I put the fronts on the back and set the ride height this is what I got?

You're doing it right. Front springs are a lot shorter.

With the MIP kit you run front springs on the rear shocks.

We are getting ready to start running indoor and looking for a good base set up. The track is usually tight and high bite.... (Smac Track St. Louis, Mo)

Also, what foams do you usually run? I noticed that Proline makes a SC specific foam (There may be others, I just haven’t seen them). I have another brand of tires that uses an 1/8th buggy foam. It seems the outside sidewall flexes a bit much...
If you buy a tire that has buggy foams is this ok to run, or do you suggest using a SC specific foam?

yes, i think the 4700 is harder on the batteries but i guess with big power, u need to bak it with big fuel...just like drag racing! Not gonna run pump gas on a built up drag car, u can but it wont fair very well.

It will also run warmer even when geared correctly...i run 160-180 in 90* heat with a 13 tooth but i do have a bit of nitro finger which doesnt help with the heat

I'm very jealous, I have the kit back ordered on Amain.

I was wondering if somebody can direct me to the CF front chassis support mount. It's the one that connects the front diff assembly/Shock tower to the chassis support. I've been searching and I cannot seem to find the Manufacturer or where to purchase the part.
