splking, are you running the same compound of tires and same tire sauce as them? Something must be amiss if you are pushing with that setup. Which track set up is it? The one for Warehouse 3 may cause you problems unless you're a JConcepts Team driver as you can't get the grey closed cell foams yet. So if using that setup, what inserts are you rolling with?

Everyone at that track runs aka typo or protex ion's. I have both. Both were having same issue. My car didn't push like this when it was 1578 grams. Just need to figure this out with the car this light. Car is faster and motor runs way cooler

Well your under the roar 1499 weight try putting some weight up front under the steering link see if that helps. Good thing about being under weight you can add where u want and still be nice and light.

Did you jot down your weight %'s before you started reducing weight? You would need to keep the afterwards weight % as close as possible to previous to have a chance at the same handling. Necessary shock changes aside.

I'm trying to find a set up for this weight. Car is faster motor runs cooler. Don't want to get back to 1578 grams. Car is more forgiving just need to get it to stop pushing

Was thinking if going to 3x1.4 pistons all around. But not sure that would help

typically 4 scales are used. one for each wheel. if you just want to check f/r bias, you can probably just use 2 scales. But you will want the scales to be of the same size (height)

Does it push going in or coming out? And is the rear too locked in?

This is the Mid Motor thread -- there is NO WAY your car is under 1500g at running weight (battery, tires, body).

I'm assuming you have a RM B5. If so, just add 20-25g of weight somewhere.

Going in it pushes bad. Coming out is fine. As for the rear it seems good

Yes it's a b5m. And yes that's running weight. There are pics on here posted on the scale

Splking
When ever you reduce weight the car will gain side traction but loose forward traction.

Explains the push you feel.

Ok what do you think I should do? Would changing the shock set up help to 3x1.4 pistons?
