makes sense to me, i mean i never once felt my 3.0e needs more steering and with my current setup it does have a slight tendency to nose dive, so i wouldn't even consider trying drakes battery tray position..

The videos are being converted right now and will be uploaded later tonight.

I asked Drake specifically about his choice of battery positioning in which he told me to make it feel more like the 3.0 nitro buggy.

i thought most of the weight of the nitro was toward the rear anyway lol

but yeah he even uses a clutch, in general i think he is trying to make his 3.0e drive more like his 3.0 nitro, im doing quite the opposite as im an electric driver.

He was not using the clutch at Nats. I also have no idea of the weight bias on the nitro 3.0

Any advice on how to get more low speed on/off power steering?
