are you referring to the pod as the plastic belly skid plate? if so, yes, i use the pod (plastic belly skid plate) along with the carbon rods down the side of the fuse. the plastic belly plate then goes over the bottom of the fuse after i put the carbon rods on the side of the fuse. the carbon rods just help take the sideways load on the fuse when launching really hard. the fuses can break off on a hard throw and/or a nose in crash.
cheers
