Can you tune it out with springs? Run a heavier front spring or stand the shock up more on the front tower. A lighter front oil might help as well, need a better rebound to keep the front up maybe. I hear the SC5m is close to minimum weight out of the box.

I need to try stiffening the front. Im definitely going with more weight. Brass C and D and battery compartment weights with a shorty instead of square pack. I'll post my results

Just don't look at adding weight different places. Most problems can fixed by changing shock setup for the balance front to rear and camber link adjustment for the cornering ability.

Square pack is going to add more weight bias toward the front vs a shorty which is easily balanced with spring rate and shock positions. Take your truck and just drop it on a level surface and watch difference between the front and rear rebound speed. It's likely the rear of the truck is coming back up quicker than the front. If the rear is slapping then the rear oil is too light for the added weight of the square pack and this will cause the truck to endo as well. One trick is to record it with your phone, most phones now have a slow motion option so you can really see what's going on.

Here is an under battery weight that looks like it could be beneficial to some.

It seemed to me at nats that a slick tire is what was the best "tread" to use but people still needed a little weight to get the tires to hook the way they needed.

I say this because after seeing the Cav was using a front wing on the b5m made me think that traction was a little tough and most of us know you can only add so much weight to the front before you start nose diving or chassis slapping the front. Seeing that he then addedbweight to the more rear section of the truck just kinda makes my hypothesis a little more plausible. I may be right but most likely not. As for me, when I run my sc5m on carpet this winter I don't think for me running extra weight will be necessary unless I absolutely need it.

(I know this was off the beaten path a little but it's been on my mind majority of the day.)

SRS has traction up the wazoo, slicks are the only way to go there. The front wing was likely to give him better forward bite at high speed, without having to lift. The additional weight was likely to make the cars easier to drive. Like I said, traction was in abundance.
