Anybody able to gear for 3.5T brushless without using the optional brushless motor mount? I have the mamba 6900 system and final drive ratio required is around 9.0.. I want to use 116/28 spur/pinion combination..

I ran my mamba 7700 with the stock motor mount with 109/27 for more then a year. I've had the brushless motor mount for more then a year as well and with that 114 has plenty of room. I think you can use 117 and still have room, you will have to take some off the rear top plate. I use 16t pullys for my 7700 outdoor and 18t pullys indoor carpet with my 4600, All with rubber tires.

The more front sweep you have the more aggresive the steering becomes.

2nd run raised front droop to 6mm and fitted a well used set of sorex 32r, made car bit tail happy but quicker.
3rd run dropped front droop back to 5mm this calmed car down a lot.

Final i realised i had the wrong front arm spacing, with arms forward
changed as per your setup to arms back, this made the car real tail happy and very sideways out of corners.
Maybe you do this due to the less physical grip of the 36r tyre.
Are the TC tower holes the same as the WCE towers.

Back when we could run any tire we wanted on carpet we never ran Sorex 36's. Set up decided what tire was going to be run.....what I mean by that was 95% of the guys ran Sorex 32's in front and 28 in the rear. This gave the car a very good balance with a oneway installed. If your set up pushed slightly but you didn't want to change anything on the car you changed tire's and ran the same compound front and rear. It was either all 28's or all 32's to get the car to rotate better. I mostly ran hpi red inserts or a Sorex firm A in all my tire's. We have had premounts for so long we forgot what use to be the go to tire insert combo....

It will increase initial turn, and reduce mid corner steerind when you use a front block with less toe in. When you use one with more it will smooth out entry and increase mid corner steering.

The only bad thing with you being a team driver is that you are gonna catch my post count by the end of the year being so helpful....

We got these cars rocking out here bro. Scotty's set up is dialed. All we want to do now is test the new proptoform body and see how it runs on the car. I have been going back and forth with the regular mazda 6 and the AP stratus. The DNA 2 was my body of choice last year but it turns in way too hard with our current set up. I think I'm only going to run 13.5 for the rest of the year. Mod is hit or mis around here.

in mid corner my feel is lose steering !
so i'm also see to body shell , do you have understeering first ,
if not have will change steering parts ,
pump steering , ackerman , F & R drop ,
i'm alway in bump steering shim 1mm , in mid corner Apex don't lose steering feel & can keep use small steering for more turn .
if in hairpin maybe will have max turn only .
