Where is the best place to Mount this esc on the mid motor car? I am running a standard servo and a shorty pack. Track I run is med bite. The car has the rocket rc brass anti squat Shim and I have the brass mid motor weight kit can add. Should I run both? Thanks for the help......

I put mine on the chassis behind the servo and put my receiver on top of my servo. I'm using a Viper VTX10R and a Savox 1256 TG servo and a RX-381 Airtronics receiver.

Tighten your diff to 1/2, this will help rotation on med grip track!

Also try limiting your front shocks (internally or by raising the spindle)

I recently added some more anti squat and it helped on-power rotation A LOT!

Okay, so I was told by someone not to run the 50g weight in the rear for MM.

That leaves only my brass weight in my side pods (18g). But... I was looking at caspers setup and he runs the v-1 bulkhead (20g), brass anti-squat (36g), and side pods (12g), which totals 68grams added weight. That is a ton of weight for mod!

Where I was sitting, I have the tlr aluminum caster/bulkhead (don't know weight), the rear brass weight (50g) and a side pod weight (18g), which totals 68g for my ride, which is exactly what casper would be running, except he has shorty packs and I still have saddles.

Now my question is whether all this weight will really do me any good and do I have they weight distributed throughout the car properly?

I'm running 34 grams of weight total. You want to run the Rocket Rc anti-squat block for sure.

It not about how much total weight is added, it is more about WHERE it is added. The Rocket R/C rear anti-squat pivot brace is the best placement for brass weight, IMO.

Frank, when running the rocket rc anti squat plate, its not recommened to run the mid motor brass weight kit? Just trying to get my setup sorta close. I have the anti squat plate installed and have the mid motor weight system, and rear motor brass plates in the pit box.

Where would you mount the esc on a med bite track?

I have my 2.0 rear motor dialed in!! So I picked up a mid motor 2.0, I wanna see what it can do.

Correct, I wouldn't run the Mid Motor Brass weight kit. After running a bit more MM on dirt, I think the weight is just a little too far back unless you are running in low grip conditions.

It is all based on what works best for you. Most that runt he RRC anti squat plate find they don't need the big 50g weight out back. I have seen some add 1-3 of our 7g tranny weights though.

Hacker, where are they mounting the esc? in front of the battery or on top towards the back?
