Anyone have any tips changing the anti squat? I generally loosen the screws that go into the hinge pin brace/transmission and remove and add a different shim but putting the shim back in place can be tricky...I found that a nail file usually works pretty good. Just wondering if anyone else had any tricks?

(mid motor without removing the motor)

I believe that if you are changing anti squat you also need to change the plastic that is in the pivot block. It's not just good enough to change the shim only. They work in pairs,

That aside, to get the shim to stay in I usually just hold the buggy up and use gravity and/or a small hex wrench to help it in place

closest would be Non-low freq green.

green front (3.5) being slightly stiffer. blue front (3.8), so a good bit higher. silver front (3.2) is slightly softer.

i run the avid red front (3.33) as its very close to the kyosho gold ( 3.34 - based on commonly used chart )

Thanks dude. Glad I could shed some light on you mid motor/MED traction thoughts.

I'm pretty much running a maifield MM setup with some tweaks. I actually got the entire setup from a local sponsored driver. My front shocks are 2x1.6 pistons with 30wt oil and silver springs.

Is there a body that has enough room to run an ESC fan when mounted on the mm battery lid?

It looks like the small plastic part (block) controls the attitude of the tranny.
For example if you ran 3 shims and the 1 block the front of your trans would sit very high, this in turn would raise your outdrives. The 3 block would keep the trans down where it should be. Does the block have a name?

I doubt it. I believe the stock body provides the most room.

Default removing slipper for stock setup

Some of the stock buggy guys at my local track have removed the slipper entirely for their stock setup 2wd buggy. I run a losi 22. What impact will this have and what exactly do I need to do to convert to "no slipper" set up. Thanks in advance for your help!

Arrow Direct Mount

I run it, gave me more bottom end quicker down low. Was able to clear jumps with ease . When traction is Med/High. If low traction it is a little tough but that what throttle control is for! Here is what I use> http://www.exotekracing.com/22-direct-spur-mount/

Can the Aka premounts be ran on 22 2.0?

Is that a bad idea? Pros/ cons?
