The 2019 arms are longer because of the narrower pivot. This will change the width if used on the earlier trucks.

Have you tried a higher ride height? I tried that low on the local clay track once and it did strange things over some moderate jumps. I raised it up 3-4 mm and it was greatly improved.

I know I'm in the minority, but I never run wings on my trucks. I don't know if it helps any with nose down/up attitude, I just don't like replacing them when they crack lol.

My trucks don't have a problem with this. Are you running low ride height and/or could the rear of the truck be bottoming out and causing the nose down condition?

Not trying to start an argument, but in my opinion lead free solder isn't necessary for rc cars. The difference in resistance and melting point offer no tangible benefits. If ROHS regulations had...

I'm not sure if you meant to say expo there, but exponential will not alter the strength of the brakes. Only end point and/or dual rate will change the strength as far as radio adjustments go.

Depending on the size of your track, the grip level, and the length of your races you might want to look at the 4500 from SMC. I had the 5400 and switched to the 4500 and love it, they are lighter...

Assuming the X6 can handle 24V input I would use a 24V power supply. The charger will run cooler because it isn't having to boost the voltage, I do this with my 308. I run a 2600KV in my EB48, can...

I run an original '17 and sometimes I'm surprised the other drivers don't lynch me for how often I win lol. The higher the traction the more it shines.

If I had to guess he may be winding his own motor. I will be surprised if any solder works. I tried winding my own motors back in the day and the solder always melted after just a couple of minutes....

I didn't have a problem breaking the body, just the wing. Missing part of the rear body could be your problem more so than the wing? Also, maybe you need a little more time getting used to the truck?...
