Yes, I did. Actually I have tried everything :-)

Antisquat: When Adding 1mm Antispuat (btw, 1mm is 1,08) the car gets very easy to drive and the rear end is much more stable, especially in mid-corner.

Antidive: turn-in gets more aggressive and it can get a little "nervous" on the Straight. I recommend this only for high grip tracks, such as carpet. than it can be up to 2/10 faster.

I mostly drive 0 Antidive / Antisquat. I think that has the best handling. There is more than one way, to trim the handling ... luckily.

Does anybody glue in the battery trays? If so, what do you use as far as glue.

I do! I use CA but only a very small amount on each slot so it will not fall off, like a period on each slot.

Outdoor I run no spacers at all, in order to gain more grip.

Indoor, 1 or even 2 mm could be good.. I haven't tried it yet

i experimented with no spacers under both front and rear arm mounts (low roll center) in a medium bite outdoor asphalt track. it definitely helps overall traction. unfortunately i did not get to time my laps but in terms of feel, it does make the car feel more planted/stable. maybe this weekend if our club race pushes through, i'll be able to compare laptimes.
