How small should the hole be, and at what location to drill?

I drilled it with a 1.1mm drill right at the small dimple on top.

I use it from time to time, mainly on carpet.

My aluminum chassis will be here today. Plan on breaking in the car at TQ. What would you suggest as a starting setup?

I see a lot of the new setups are using a C mount in the back. What exactly does that do? Just widen the rear end so its not as susceptible to breaking grip?

We use the C mounts in the back in combination with the new shorter rear arms.
This improves/reduces the chassis roll and improves the corner speed.

Hi people. Quick question. I've got a set of RP 2.8-3.0 progressive springs... but a pair is marked with 1 dot the other with 2 dots. Do you know the difference?

I've ordered from mbmodels (link above) and have had good luck with shipping to the US. They will deduct the VAT tax, so it won't be as expensive as you think. Also, I emailed them and had them send me a paypal invoice for the total amount, including shipping etc.
