One could mount the White rear toe/antisquat -1 mm plates to better a Yellow/the car
or fit the sideguards with weights both sides
+1/+1 wheel hubs

I use and recommend balloons, particularly the long skinny ones cut to fit. They last as long as other boots out there and a bag of them lasts for ages.

Thanks Gigi! I've plotted the roll centre with the changes I made and the result is nothing short of amazing! Needs real testing immediately! Running to the garage.

I keep having ideas with the rear hubs, I have a worn out set that will modify to make like the rear hubs in the D815. If only I had access to a CNC and 3D printer...

*edit* Found out why the rear right shock was inconsistent at full droop, causing random spinouts and such. There was a shim I must've drop and lodged in the bottom of the shock body and it caused the shock to bind and not extend properly when extended. Still won the last race with it and I'm not happy with the MBX6 therefore I'm back

I'M A GENIUS! HOW SIMPLE TO IMPROVE THE REAR HUBS! Vertical ball stud in the making, ZERO modifications to the hub and a part you could make easily.

Today was a good day. I'm happy with the outcome, particularly because I addressed the common complain with this car. Now I have much more and consistent traction, on and off power. This setup lacks nothing! Try it and see for yourself

Tips from yesterdays race:
-Reversing kick up pills (less kick up same roll center) and adding reverse bump steer was a huge mistake, too nervous;
-Camber links like the stock OG setup, except one hole lower on the front, felt 100% good, THE Car drives smoothly.

I'm happy with THE Car and will continue to use it throughout this season competitively, I will be here to provide a kind of support and assist you in being a better driver.

Latest tests have been very good, it's faster and more stable than ever running a variation of the previous posted setup. This week I will be testing a new clutch bearing and a higher mounted front shock because I want to test more uptravel (*edit* was not good, lost too much downtravel) then sway bars.
