I think mid motor is the current "trend", whether it's better in all circumstances is very much open to debate. It brings with it some positives, but like everything, also some negatives. There is...

Agree with gluing the inserts into the front arms, I would recommend putting the ball into the insert before gluing in. It seems that this is better for "play" and keeping the front end together, It...

I think the theory goes that the belts are under quite a bit of tension, and therefor with them being away from the centre line, when under tension, they will effect the chassis flex. Clearly the...

The suspension plastics are hands down the best I've ever used, so I'd have been annoyed if they had been changed!

OK, so you're actually talking about the spool outdrives? You specifically said rear in your first post!
