Because of the different weights in battery packs it's best to weigh the car alone minus the battery.
well, if your going to go that route, you should remove the tires and rims also. Some of my tires weight greatly more than others. M4 holeshots weight more than a green barcode.

Electronics and body as well. That why you should compare the car you put on the track. That's what the rule looks at and really the only number that matters.

+1 the tekin gen2 I had was 40grams lighter than an orion and 20grams lighter than a viper. A LP servo is also about 20 grams less than a full servo. This is why we all just do race weight. All that maters if the roar min of 1499. And of the weight bias. Removing too much weight from one end of the car, could seriously effect traction.

Why would you run 3.7volts in a buggy?

Ya I found the best way for me and this way ther is no air

BTW

Couple teammates are now using the shorty pack, mid performs much better with.

cherry, how are you orienting the battery? side to side? if so, in the front of the tray or rear? Or are you running it from front to back down the center of the tray?

Why not just try them out and see which one you like best?

My mid motor weighed in at the JBRL at 1540g ready to run with everything and my transponder.

Weight is always measured ready to run on the track.

I mount my battery all the way back as well.

Had fun at the JBRL race round 1 at IERC raceway. I raced stock buggy and stock truck. I won truck and took 3rd in buggy. There were 80 entries in buggy. I used my new Team Associated B5m buggy in the main and it was working great. I used Tekin power in both classes and MIP pucks in my T4.2 truck. My new Paint Monster truck body looks awesome
