Does a standard 2s Lipo fit in the buggy on either rear motor or mid motor?

I think I read that when people are running mid motor, they usually run the aluminum camber rear camber block. Is this for weight or durability? Is there anything wrong with running the stock one?

Also, do people sometimes run 4wd tires on the front? I was thinking of trying some. Mostly on a higher grip track...using slicks.

What are the differences between 4mm trailing and 2mm trailing spindle? What are advantages and disadvantages of each?

Anyone?

Is a low profile servo a must if you plan to put the ESC on the chassis? I don't have my car in front of me yet to look at.

your going to need all of the space you can get. So, IMO yes, you need a shorty servo. I would use a small esc like the tekin or viper also and a small receiver.

I wanna make as clean of a wiring job as I can. Everything just looks so cramped with the ESC towards the back.

wait, are you asking about the esc on the chassis for RM or MM? For RM, you should be fine with a full servo ,with the esc in the rear and the receiver up front.

Did you try Dakotah's setup just recently posted? Might be the closest you get to out of the box configuration for MM.

2mm will have a more direct steering feel.

Try Dakotah's setup, he runs no brass and his ESC on the shelf. It was posted on the previous page.

I run a full size servo. It has better durability and better performance.
