Running about 1670 grams atm.
I was going to use saddles as a tuning option, but the car slapped so hard everywhere. I had issues getting enough pack. And chassis slapping it like nails on a chalk board to me. The extra weight, do make the car feel more plush on the bumps and calms the car down for sure. I am running pretty stiff IMO shocks now at 1600. And i still sometimes slap. If I were running MM outdoors though, I would probably run a saddle, or just run the RM car. Probably the later.

Why don't you Get the square pack. Might be the difference between slapping and not

saddles and sq are the same shape and weight. My saddles were 278 grams. My shorty is 214. A sq just has the built in balance port and you dont have to use a jumps, so probably less IR. Saddles are nice also, because they can be used in 4wd buggies. I used to have a b44.2, so that was why I owned a saddle in the first place. But now even 4wd buggies are going to shorties, lol.

Wild Cherry...I noticed in your pic that you have the ESC between the motor and the battery. Pushes weight forward correct? What are the pros and cons of setting up this way or is it just personal preference?

Anyone can way in btw...I would love to hear the input.

if he hadn't had electrical issues he would have won regionals with the car too.
If anyone wants to see the videos, the track was maybe the most favorite ever and he managed to beat the always fast Jesse Munn. It must be said that the track grooved up well and there was TONS of traction - it's not like this was some sort of low traction track.

With a inline battery the car can change direction quicker & feels more responsive.

Esc in the rear instead of front adds grip and removes weight from nose for better forward traction

over all weight balance allows car to jump & land more level.

I would think the battery pushed back with the esc in the front would be more weight on the rear.

yup, but the weight from the ESC & wire on the nose is not helping traction at all.Why the Esc is where it is.
Retake a look , Esc is half way under motor guard.

Overall weight is just a few % more forward then kit set up.

How r your tires ?

3 sets of gold barcodes with red foams in rear. (Just broken in, 1/2 way gone, and trash can tires. All the fronts match and are good. Just need front springs to finish setup. I wish I didn't sell my red front k-springs, have the rear golds still

This is outrageous....I'm breaking out with my scale....that I just bought and need a reason use. I'm gonna weight 3 smc packs, a reedy pack, and my old TP5400 saddles:

SMC 5800 Square: 274.2g
SMC 4600 Shortie: 211.8g
SMC 3500 Shorty: 152.6g
Reedy 5800 Square: 281.5g
TP 5400 Saddle: oh snap, I weighed it twice......322.9g

I have a Reedy 4100....I should just weigh that one too.

Received 2 kits from tower, both have the old crush tubes. Hopefully the second mid motor I ordered locally comes with the right tubes. Axles in both kits I have now are loose.
