And the thing is, is that with the weight setup I posted above ^^^ I put it on scales and both the front and back were within .5 grams of each other with no ajustments. All I did was set the ride height to 5mm the night before.

*If you want to use scales make sure all the arms, spindles, etc. are completely free. I had a car that had an arm that was stuck because of to many spacers and the car would change 50 grams every time I put it on the scales.

Yeah you may think that is a good deal, but you want to buy parts as you break them instead of having 150 parts you most likely wont use.

there are holes in the chassis to do f/r balance on the pins.

That won't prevent the diff from rotating. Need to put sandpaper disks between the rings and pulley, then lock it down tight. Leave the balls in the pulley. Shouldn't rotate anymore
