I'm running the mid motor set up on carpet and it has worked great so far! I'm using Hofers LRP Masters carpet set up with Yokomo Pink and Blue springs.

I haven't had any issues yet. I'm using the yokomo springs as stated above! Try the mid motor I think you will love it!

anyone running this? feedback please.

Yes! The car stays flat and is very neutral..

did you try the additional standoff on top deck?

I plan on getting the mid-motor setup soon.
Do it!! You wont regret it!

so many questions, and I don't have a carpet track to practice on before the IIC!

Yes cut arms front and rear with mid motor. I believe the car was originally designed with the arms "cut".
