Default finally went mid motor

finally made the move to mid motor , I used the Dunford-Root setup (except for orange LF front springs . Took it to the track tonight and was about 1.5 seconds faster with the car . I used the rocket rc Squat block , side pod weights and rear brass weight and aluminum camber link . Traction was down at the track but the car still felt good , it Jumps awesome and is way more stable in the air and on landings . Steering could be a little better but i am going to work on that .I was very impressed. Keep in mind NOBODY has gotten the mid motor 22 2.0 to work at our track and i was told it wouldn't work by almost everybody . The most weight i have seen anybody add is the rocket rc squat block and that was it so i think the other weights are key in lower grip situations . my car weighed in at 1640 grams .

What body are you running that you can fit the ESC wires straight up like that? I just finished my MM 22 2.0, and am running my Reventon on the saddle pack strap. The stock body is pretty tight against my wiring, and im guessing the cab forward might be even lower.

i was thinking i should lay the wiring down , i am running a hobbbywing 90 amp esc , i am running a cab forward TLR body and its tight , the standard body fits better .

I am getting my buggy later today an I got a revention pro with the fan, I will be running it box stock rear motor and wonder if mine will fit with the fan on it?

It will be a quick or all night build to finish it for Saturdays race.
How long does it take to build it??.

You don't need the fan for 2w. I use the same speedo in 2w and 4w. 4w is the only one I need fan on.

It took me about 5 hours non stop to build mine. But I have built quite a few over the years. Everything fits very good throughout the build. The only part you may have to adjust on is the steering slider. A few swipes on the top and bottom of the slider with sandpaper to keep it from binding when assembled, not much but just a little. Some kits I"ve built I had to cut and sand almost every part to get them to fit right. Not on this one.

Yeap!!!! It took me 5 hours. Breaking the seal to a one color wonder paint job and glued the tires.!!! I didn't sand the slider but I will today (Sunday). I need a faster servo. But the buggy was damn good for me. First time out 5 in the amain. I am happy out of a 20 buggy field of guys.
But I need to find more steering but the savox 1267 is a 6.0-7.4 hungry servo. I think i will get a spectrum 6040 and speed it up I hope. The steering felt slow and lazy??
I did take off the fan on the esc. Like y'all said its not needed.

I've tried both 2mm and 4mm. I personally like the 4 better, but the 2 had a more aggressive turn in feel to them to me.

Any of you running 0 anti-squat? Wonder if it would give me a little more forward bite.
