Try reducing a little the caster.

So does standing the shocks give you more side bite?

The front shocks.
No, it will give you more initial turn in with a little sacrifice of mid corner side bite. But you can stand the rear shocks in the fourth hole from the bottom to let the car rotate mid corner.

you want to balance the front and rear just like you run the same shor tires front and rear, the split in tire size is mostly for wear and if you run overdrive i dont run overdrive cuz it hurts the belts i found,but i do split the size by 2mm this may diff from track to track,you want the tires to come off after a run the same size or the front 1mm less than the rear,if the front tires are bigger you will have push,the goal is to get the car to point and roll into the turn with speed and not to slide,the car has to roll side to side and thats roll center you just got to fined the balance,

Hmmm, sounds like a set up we used recently on cheesehead territory.
Yeah, this worked great on tracks where everyone and their dogs couldn't get bite.

I am building my MTX4 and when assembling the brake disc onto the carrier I noticed that there is no play, it is TIGHT. Is this normal?

The elongated holes go to bottom.

The best way to get free movement is to sand blast the screws where the plates sit. Or buy G4S brake plate screws.

Sorry I explained badly. There is a carrier with 3 posts that connects to the main shaft. The brake disc fits over the 3 posts. The fit of the brake on the posts is ultra tight. Is that normal?

Don't you worry....., after few tanks, the brake disc should wobble freely.

Most importantly the disc should rotate forward easy. It needs alignment from brake pads. 2mm - 2.5mm between plates.

the brake disc will loosen up over time, no need to worry
good to see you have chosen a mugen AMG and resisted the darkside
remember; always beware of the darkside kyosho
