yeah I saw one of the guys try this in his 22 at Motorama and he had to take it out. He said the car just wouldn't handle right with it. Put his std shorty back in and was good to go.

It definitely is tiny and light though if that's what you are looking for.

this battery for 17.5 stock buggy is awesome. and the punch for a 7 min main is great. Really no fall off near the end of a race. I have two.

These have 300 mah less than the venom ones everyone runs and they quite a bit lighter.

I liked it in my B4.2 for stock class, it was a porker anyways, so the less battery weight was great. In my B5 I like saddles as they are a bit heavier.

Update from tonight at the track. Here is what I changed and it seemed to help the pushing issues on throttle

Green springs 27.5 weight up front
White springs 30 weights in rear
Front hubs spaced back
Steering/ank 1mm

Every thing else is the Ryan mayfield setup at warehouse 3

Splking, try adding 1/2 oz in front of servo on the chassis.

We add that much to keep the front down & smooth the steering entering the corners & sweeper.

We will also add the weight when ever the car begins to pull wheelies coming onto the straights.

Splking:

Apologies if you already tried these 2 things:

Raise front spindle height?

Ball diff too tight?

Raise the rear ride height and lower the front so you're at a 1mm split biased to the rear (rear higher). To go along with that, I would add another limiter to the front shocks to keep the weight on the front end. Unless you have tried those things already, then kindly disregard

Splking, keep it simple and just add the 1/2 oz on top of the servo.
If you like or not easy to remove or move later in front of servo.

I have one team mate who is using the extra weight of the front, he is using a shorty servo.

He adds it right on the back of the servo .
