    I wonder how much chassis twist thats gonna have? My A3 has a good bit with 2 huge thick tvp's down the center, and side to side alum braces, and this has nothing like that. One thing I can tell you is that the chassis material is very very durable the way the a3 is put together, and that rear shock tower mounting system will be extremely solid. The big problem with a mid engine conversion is getting a strong rear shock tower mount, and my mid engine version is the strongest rear tower mount(and stiffest) I have ever seen or could have imagined was possible, mid or rear engine. This rear eng setup should be even stronger and stiffer

    Yeah it should be, I heard its just like the Slice A4 but rear motor mount instead of mid so you can get more traction on your rear tires

    Yeah, I have not raced the a3 on dirt, but have bashed it, and do notice that from a dead stop, and using light throttle, it is very hard to keep it straight on loose surfaces. It could be the open diff I am running also. If I go full throttle, it spins the meat, but launches dead straight. On carpet it has great traction everywhere at any throttle input, but on loose tracks, the rear eng b series will prob be a better option...

    Dont know how the a4 does, but on a tight high traction track, my a3 keeps up and even surpasses the race trucks and better drivers at times...

    Mid engine setups are design for very high traction surface.
    Simply the best. The beautiful Traxxas SRT and TCP

    Yeah so you don't skid out or not get any speed at all because they cant get any traction and just spin out

    I can say that after getting used to tuning steering out instead of racking my brain on how to find more steering, I am happy I went with the mid engine.

    I don't think I would call that motor 'mid' in that chassis. It is likely closer to the axles than it being hanging out over the back, traction from weight and traction from 'weight transfer' are two different things
