I run front on, rear off. With the rears on in a high traction situation, like grass, the truck would flip constantly when turning. It also handled like ass on bumpier spots where only one side is activated at a time. Made my car look like a paint can shaker. Front bar tightens up the steering and makes it more predictable. I can still flip the damn thing on grass, but it's not as bad as it was.

alrighty guys, I know what I want to do. I’m building a track buggy for the racing events we have. I wont be adding “bling” all parts will have to specifically increase durability handling and/or speed or ease of wrenching. Steering is done besides maybe knuckles. Electronics and brakes are squared away.
i need part recommendations on the following for now.

obr long block
clutch housing
clutch bell
clutch bell housing
pinion and spur
shock towers (not sure if I want to add the weight)
Throttle and brake linkage
