Has any one tried using the plastic R/F suspension holder for mid motor on the rear motor set up?
It looks like it has a thicker wall around the pin holes.

Will work but might block the motor from being able to move forward.

I don't see that happening cause the R/F holder is in front of transmission on the rear motor set up!

and where you running the .5 hubs w/the 6 arms?

i am looking to try the -1 arms next week but i'm really curious as to what ppl doing. im not sure if i would want less grip from the rear, i'm not sure if that would help because of how much steering i already have but i like to drive aggressively and could benefit having the rear a not as glued mid corner but still have the forward drive.

my times tend to drop when the track dries out a little because its looser and fits my driving style. if i could get that same feel when the track is being watered between rounds but not completely loose the the rear i'd be golden.

and it sounds like that's what this change will do..?

No, ran 0's with the 6 arms. its not really a loss of traction, the rear end just slides a tick more in the corners.

You mean, like after a running change? I have heard of the following 3

1. different chassis with fixed gearbox milling
2. beefier plastic steering rack
3. beefier shelf on rear upper bulkhead

That is actually the part you are supposed to use for the rear motor config. That they sell it in a bag labeled mid motor is confusing. This part holds up well. The old thinner one will not usually last one run.

Easy, just run a longer ball stud, and put a lock nut on the bottom. Make sure you run the extra set screws in the empty holes, and you will be just fine.

FWIW, all these are not exactly issues. Its way more durable than anything else out there. I started getting breakages only in the northern cal cold weather these past few weeks. Till then it was solid. Also for 3 I have the exotek bulkhead front and rear. My opinion is run the car, get a feel for it then see if you break it then replace it. If your buying used then maybe a good idea to upgrade stuff you thinks been roughly used and for that the steering rack is a must and so are the aluminum suspension holders.
