ok so a big thanks to sidewinder for giving me that laundry list of things to work on(thats not sarcasm, i am thankful), so today it was time to work on the arm position. I brought it closer to my chest and the elbow away. I have been getting slightly less distance but am using a half x step, so that is an accomplishment. I have also noticed that i must have been over torquing the disc or something on my last video because the discs are going almost as far, but more overstable.Also i noticed that my hips start turning before i throw the disc, i guess that will be next :/ Also can i bring my arm back further or should i keep it near my left pec

When your plant foot lands, it looks like you are hugging yourself. You want almost the opposite of that, massive width of the upper arm from the chest. Your aiming and stance will change a lot and your concept of throwing a disc. Read through the first link and watch all those vids.

so you basically want the disc and arm away from the body until you hit your right pec, and thats when you accelerate your pull through and the disc ends up close to your chest because its supposed to be pulled on a line close to your chest.

Pretty much, although it varies some from person to person from left to right pec. Compare your plant positioning to any top thrower and you will see big difference in the shoulders and arm, as well as hips.

For keeping the disc at arms length watch Barry Schultz drive.
