I used to run the lower chassis mount with the adj. shock collar on. If i ran the upper mount then I had to take the shock collar off. Upper mt. with the collar puts too much tension on the rear pod and the chassis will not sit level. the rear pod will be slightly pushed to the ground. lower gives you more fine tuning.
put a soft spring on the rear too. That white is wayyyy too stiff.

I always use the bridge type mount for foam tire, it gives more on power steering. Generally the flatter the shock, the more on power steering. You may want to start with the post, and remember that if you want more on power steering, you can use the bridge.

using the upper mount puts more push on the rear pod forcing the rear tires to the ground giving more on power go but may be loose off power. you basically have to play with the car to see what suits your driving style/track. this car is very sensitive to chassis changes so make 1 change at a time.
