i prefer the 2 piece mount, chassis has a bit more flex . i found with one piece mount i now and then strip gears . but with the 2 peice mount i have only strip one gear in almost 8 months and that too i think it was cos of driving on a dirty track .

note to myself have to beat corney's inbreed RRR . i dropped my tank down when i was using lipo . didnt feel much different. but for some reason the constant pressure of the tank on my lipo unscrewed the battery holder from the front end and it must have caught itself some where on the track pushing the battery into the tank and cracking the tank . wasn't very nice . lol note to myself its a good idea to have the tank a bit above the battery . but i definitely like the receiver box .

I personally use the atomic receiver box which is similar. Have no problems with it except the fact that my servo cables are a bit too long and they are crumbed in there

I have used the one piece mount since day one with my RRR Evo 2 and have had no problems. Have had my Kit since last September and have stripped 2 gears due to debris on the track and a blown thrust bearing.

I have always used one piece engine mounts. They should reduce on stripped gears as well as reducing flex in the engine case. It does weigh a bit more, but I think it is well worth the extra grams.

Receiver case I never use. In 5-6 years of onroad racing, only once would it have made much of a difference. There was a time recently when I caught a pipe sticking out at just the right angle etc etc.. The result was I broke the servo plugs themself. Receiver was fine, but I bent over the plugs that stuck out from the receiver.

I have never tried the 1 degress static with the short link, but it would be interesting to try on a track that lacks forward bite.

You ever hear anybody at the track say "throttle control"?
You now know what they mean.

If not, throw some rear camber at it, or add a shim under the rear camber link on the wheel side. One of the two should help.
