And correct me if I'm wrong here, but short and narrow setups, first and foremost, do not allow you to push the car nearly as hard through the corners as wide setups; so, you have to drive it MUCH more carefully and technically to avoid rolling.

I think adding some weight (metal rods) to the belly gaps between battery slots would also help overall. I'm personally trying to see if using aluminum wheels also helps lower and spread the weight around where these cars need it the most.

On Carpet it is different. I could push my narrow as hard as I wanted. Notice my car is not lowered with 20mm wheels all around. Not one hatchback traction roll in the race I believe. Check video again.

Then, I'll correct my train of thought towards RCP. I still have absolutely NO carpet experience, but definitely want to try it sometime.

Sai,

on my 90 Atomic mount, the discs barely make contact to the damper plate.. Should I shim below the mounting plate and top cover or shim between the spring and arm so that the disc makes contact..

My disk isn't horribly pressed against the plate, but that fairly loose feel really does its magic.

That did the trick, keeps the rear planted and eliminated a lot of chatter.
Thanks,=..

i'm thinking about getting the kyosho CE28N wheels which are 17mm front and i assume standard 20mm rear. does this much smaller diameter front wheel make a noticeable difference? i am currently running the atomic S6 19mm front and 20mm rear. i prefer the smaller diameter front wheels just to give a fraction better tire clearance on the inside of the shell. i always seem to be scrubbing something with 20mm wheels.

Are you using an rm or mm t-plate? I used both the rm and mm 90mm config on an mr03 for a short time without much complication. Are you using rm or mm mount? If you can post a pic of the top and bottom view that would help diagnose the issue...

RM t plate, RM atomic motor mount. can';t explain why the damper posts just are not aligning right. they are about 4mm to far back. maybe the newer version motor mount isn't the same as the original that was coordinated with the damper.
