I hope that the alloy servo holder is fitted in the wrong spot... Otherwise there might be some issues with the original servo mounts...

Pretty sure you only use the alloy servo mount, one servo, so the plastic servo mount is not needed.

Anyone notice something different about the rear end setup  ???

No engine sub frame mount... The clutch bell is mounted directly to the chassis...

I would love to know what the deal with front shocks on the rear is about??

I can only assume that it has something to do with the stiffness of the rear shocks, I have tried to soften them up with thinner oil, but made no difference imo

im having a guess, the weight saving on a shorter shock and shock mounts is what they are chasing, so the racers can chime in with a weight of each with oil!

I would think last year euro results and setup knowledge this is what MCD have come up with.
A specific factory team limited edition design to compete at the euros.
The option of using the engine plate is there if wanted but at a guess maybe 2 gear ratio to choose from without the engine plate.
Rear diff is from a competition, alloy center diff and at a guess like wise in the front.
Lots of 7075 alloy including the wheel hexes and wheel nuts.
Im not sure about the exhaust pipe but noise limit was a big issue from what I heard hence the introduction of the filter/housing.
