As electronics are getting smaller, lighter and also brushless making the motor lighter aswell. The brushless setup with a regular servo only weighing in at only 360 grams.
Where as battery weights have gone up. the IB4200's i have, built with bars weigh in at 440 grams. Thats a whole 80grams heavier.
Was wondering if its important to re-balance the car. Would it really make a huge difference?
Certainly, make the car more consistant (predictable) handling. That is important. Dont ballance it on just the static weight of the items alone though. Go to xrays website (unless you own one already) and check out the set up book, it shows you how to ballance it there
