Lighter yes. Depending on surface you might run into issues. Overall its a great performer. I do no like the body mount setup on it and am trying to figure out how to go back to velcro on the sides. But in all I like the purchase. I sent some info to one of the Xfactory guys on something they may want to look into on the chassis and will see if it comes of it. Is it needed, no. You will have to change your shock setup and I have added back nearly 40g to the car.

I would think you would just mill off as much material as you are looking to move the battery back?

If you were looking to move the weight further back and are not worried about minimum weight just add weight on the back side of the brace and waterfall between the motor.

I started building my kit and the quality is phenomenal! I hate to say it but it makes my sc10.2 seem like crap.

yeah, I see people hating on this car and I like wtf. This car is a baller. Then they tell me how bad the b4,t4,sc10 are. I love it when people that never even tried the B5 bash it based on the B4.

How can they justify bashing the b4 either? Winnigest platform in history. The guys that talk out their [email protected]# like that are usually also the guys finishing near the back and have no clue.

Saw your question once.... I have seen plenty of pictures of the cut waterfall and inline mod throughout here. I bet if you used the search function you could find them. I don't believe many guys prefered inline once they tried it and went back to standard setups from what I have read.

As for WC. Everyday was filled with another miracle setup but no response as to what changes were noticed. Always that it was the "new" greatest setup and all the AE guys would do it. He really provided no real world advice and simply cost anyone who followed his advice money as they eventually were spending to replace parts he told them to hack up with no results to show from the mod.

To each their own.

Thank you for the comments .

At the moment I don't have a lot of money so I can't really afford a new pack for weight distribution purpose only... I'm not paying for the brass so....

Here's the "mark II" :





150g that one () with the shorty the car weights 1700g dead.

Indeed the B5 would be a better solution than this but this weight is for the 15% of the time where we go on super slippery polished concrete otherwise it is carpet and astro.
I needed something quick to add/remove and cheaper than owning a b5 and b5m.

I tried it with no weight the 85g and 150g on our workshop floor (polished concrete again) and the 150g felt the best. Again this could be an impression and needs to be verified at the next club meeting. The 150g weight gave the car very much a point and shoot feeling. I could turn very sharp and faster to me.
Slight drift into corner and then full throttle out almost .

Jonathan

He said "super slippery" right, something most of us never run on.... I appreciate people are trying to find improvement to the car to fit their local conditions, and sharing the results.

Again, many are getting both cars, some get one of them and work from there...
