I recently picked up a BD9 off the forum here and I'm going through it and freshening it up. I see that the rear shocks have a shorter rod end then the front shocks. I don't see this in the owners manual anywhere... Is this the proper configuration, or should they all be the same?

I did the switch. I kept all the same setting and I found it harder to drive. No rear traction. I guess that I need to change some setting? What will be a good grey carpet setup for a bd9 with mid motor configuration? thanks

Been awhile since anyone posted, Anyone running a 10.5T motor in the BD9, got an older BD9 and looking to set it up for super late model. Is it too much or will it need an aluminum chassis? If so what's a good FDR? Thanks

Last weekend, I ran the BD9 in stock class (17.5) and it was very good. Also run my other BD9 in USGT (21.5) and again great setup and car !

In case I didn't run long time on carpet meanwhile never with mid motor cars on this kind of surface.
Could anybody suggest what kind of screw position should put in beginning on rear stiffener of BD9 with arrowmax coversion kit, please?
Best regards
