If you can't notice 2 pieces of ballast on the front ?

You may not even understand what a push feels like .

Suggest you give the car to a experience driver for a test spin.
Have that driver make suggestions for tuning.

Tell me how it goes , very interested...

Gave it to a team guy the other night. He said same thing that is pushes like crazy. He was surprised since our setups are the same. Only thing is his car comes in at 1610. My car never pushed like this at 1578 grams. I'm just trying to find something that works at this weight. Car is faster and runs way cooler now. I'll be at the track today trying different things in hopes to come up with something

Obviously your car is not the same as his .If they were the same they will drive the same.

So ?

What this did the team driver suggest for you to try.

Meaning set up is same yes in that aspect 100% yes my battery and wheels are lighter than his. My car is way lighter so that's the issue. He suggested moving front hubs all the way back . And try running lighter oil front and rear. Both of which I'll try today.

Wouldn't you have all the answers? Don't you and your teammates test everything under the sun? You figured you would be able to give a suggestion on what to try. Try giving the guy a suggestion. All i see is you asking question and not giving help. pointless.

Sorry rant over.

When you say pan car battery, do you mean a 1 cell (3.7)? can the flow operate with 1 cell?

He is referring to this:

http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...ts-74V-3200mAh

Only 155g, normal shorty is in the 210-220g range.

I believe he stated that it was all the way forward.

You are really going to need to experiment with a few different things. Nobody here has a car as light as yours.

Yeah it's all the way forward. And I do appreciate everyone advise and help. I'll be at the track trying tons of things today. Just hoping to find the right setup before I race Friday.
