Anyone have issues with the shock collars? Mine keep backing upwards from the force of the springs. I lose 1mm of rear ride height and half a mm of front each run. I have the o ring in place.

Different battery packs

This vehicle can take multiple styles I.e. sizes of battery packs. Do these have a profound effect on handling? Is there a preferred type of battery pack for high grip carpet? Is it just net weight?
