Yes, I agree! I made a fairly elaborate set-up to ensure a flat and level surface. It is 1.5" mdf board with leveling screws in the corners. Something like this is necessary to get accurate and...

Yeah, the VRP seems to be a good option. I have used Fioroni pistons, but they are for 1/8 scale. I'm not sure if they make a piston that would fit your vehicle.

The change in effective spring rate will be fairly subtle. You probably won't notice any difference.

Why do you need more droop? Excess droop can lead to handling problems.

I call BS. A 17.5T will not pull 100A....not in a 2wd buggy...not on a race track. Even at a dead stall, with wires smoking, I don't believe a 17.5T will pull 100A. Once the laquer is burnt off...
