Oh ye, if you are building 2 cars and have them using different axles and different rear tread width settings, the cars will handle differently and might throw you off if you got one of them setup all sweet, go to the other and start to wonder why stuff is different when you thought everything was identical between the 2 cars. Just FYI.
we have used the middle setting but never the wide setting with the 2mm off-set hubs.. If we put 93mm dogbones in the rear, I use the middle setting, but I don't think it would pass an iFMAR inspection. ROAR I think middle is ok, but not iFMAR.

In my opinion the rebound depends on the track condition :

Bumpy Track --- Fast Rebound.
Smooth Track --- No Rebound.

So i change the rebound accordingly and i feel the MP9 always silky smooth.

How do you change the speed of the rebound - different pistons?

I think he meant full rebound?

Only way to get "faster" rebound is using a heavier spring and light oil and on a bumpy track, this would prove to be a poor choice

Oh my bad, thanks for explaining. With all the talk of Fioroni double-action pistons and stuff, I wasn't sure if you did mean to change the speed/piston or the rebound setting when bleeding the shocks.

Thanks mate.

Funny that you should ask that as I was just about to post the following.

Scott and Mr Smelly: Do you guys (and everyone else, of course) reckon there is anything strange going on with my car and the amount of space from the end of the dogbone to the bottom of the outdrive? From what you've been saying, about having problems if running the 93mm axles and the narrow tread setting, I shouldn't have as much room as is visible in the pic. There is easily more than 2mm there at all points in the range of suspension travel, hence I could very easily run the 93mm axles in the narrow setting and still have some wiggle room, so that the axle won't bottom out.

Does anyone else have so much room with the same setup as what I'm using? How much room should there be with the 91mm axles/2mm offset/narrow tread settings?

Thanks guys.

I run the same rear setup and mine look identical to yours. 6 gallons on my chassis with ZERO issues.

Hmm, interesting, I shimmed mine on the outside and I can see there is not much different in space between yours and mine. I'm running them today with the 91mm shimmed outside and will update you.

With the conditions of local track (Johor track out today due to heavy rain!) if it were to pop out or have any issue, this will be the best track to try... i think

My other buggy I'm running with 93mm, shimmed outside with narrow setting and I see enough play between the outdrive and dogbone but I can't test that one yet and there is NO way I'm running that on the local track

I'm heading down now and will be able to share with you within the next 4 to 5 hours if there is any value coming from noob like me.

PS: Sean, will snap some photos of my buggy with dirt later.

I'm using the 2mm offset with the 93mm, shimmed on the outside with narrow setting but I've not tested them yet. From what I see, it looks ok.
