Club races are all high bite indoor carpet and medium traction outdoor turf.
stock class 17.5


What batteries is everyone running. with what ratings for power and weight. I've been trying to find a good weight balance setup, by switching from a shorty to a super shorty it shaved 70 grams but I feel like the buggy needed that extra weight. Also it may have been under legal weight.

Should I go with a heavier battery or add some weights to certain areas of the buggy. Any technical advice on the matter would be much appreciated.
thanks

The car can already be under weight with a regular shorty and regular equipment depending on what you're using.

Im aware of this now, so I might as well go back to a shorty and add weight from there, rather then using a super shorty and having to add double the amount of weights in my car.

Even so if I need weight where to add?? I was going to drop 21g near the servo??

Any recommendations on a good performing shorty. My club used mainly (new wave's) which I don't really like. So I'm looking for some advice on that.
thanks

I heard good things about Protek but being as it is 60- 75 grams lighter, where would I make up the weight.

But then aren't the benifits of a lighter battery negated.

Is it still the most powerful shorty? Would someone be better off getting a heavier battery (if there is one better then the prtek surprem power shorty), not using the weights

Running a short-shorty with the weights under it still produces a lower CoG than running a "tall" pack. That can be particularly helpful on high-grip surfaces.

Just use the stock ones and use shoe goo or servo tape under the servo to minimize movement.

The battery brace extender is made from aluminium. Sure i can make one for you if you want to buy one.
You need to drill two countersunk holes to the original battery brace.

Let me make sure I'm on the same page about thr Y-Max change.. Is this change for loose track aka low bite tracks?

And the YZ2 works grear in high bite tracks and on astro turf?

Y-MAX setup adds more weight to the rear to gain traction with out losing out on the YZ2 steering?

My track is high bite. We run Dirtwebs gold around. Would Dave B. Setup be a good starting point or the stock setup?
This will be a 17.5t build kit.

This is my kit weight with out tires and wheels and body..
