Running max short wheelbase in the rear may be dodgy with spacin of the 2 speed gears. Jusr check if you have sufficient clearAnce.

i have given up trying to use short rear wheel base for this reason. i just thaught with the extra grip it is supposed to give, making the rear shorter will help the car rotate a bit better. but not enough clearance for everything to fit. , Cheers.

Best,
I run the H. Never tried the M. The H feels great to me; so why change.


Pass you soon...

I have only used the H parts, but I am thinking of trying out the M parts..

The H parts seem to bend and not break during a crash, I have never had a broken suspension part only bend ones after impact.

I ran the M and H back to back.

M definitely generates more grip, but I had to go stiffer springs all round as the car felt slightly more lazier.

Quoting what Michael Salven said in a test:

"Hard plastic seemed to be as fast as the soft one, but maybe a little better on the bumps"

Either way, I have had some speculator crashes and am yet to break any of the plastics.
