I want to experiment with the setup so I can keep the weight as close to the legal limit as possible without adding too much lead. The car weights roughly 90% of what it weighed with Nimh, so I'm thinking I can go 10% softer on springs and oil and possibly 10% lower on the gear ratio.
With the lipo all the way forward, the front would barely stay on the ground even with a Novak 10.5. Then it dawned on me, with dropping 10% weight, the car was probably undergeared by at least 2 teeth. I also want to experiment with anti-squat and wheelbase settings to keep the front end down.
