So the next three pics show how the cars setup... First pic shows how I have the car setup with the cells off to one side.
Second pic shows how much by (basically locators the other side of the chassis), and the third shows a nice lightweight fan mount...

The weight might go that low....wow....so much for 5 cell slowing the cars down....now lighter weight and lipo voltage......we might need bodies with more downforce

Nice fan mount. I discovered (with some help) that if you don't use 2pc mounts in the rear, you can screw a servo mount into the second hole behind the motor, and then screw the fan into the servo mount. It doesn't get much easier than that.

Tryhard,
The offset battery thing is exactly what I did to my car for the reedy race a couple months ago. I got my car perfectly balanced at a measly 1360g. I've been running it that way for the past couple months and it handles awesome.

What servo mount you using? would need to be quite long to get the fan close?

Fan mount was a Team Tamale one... but I'm not sure he makes them anymore

Hey Ling,

A phrase about great minds seem familiar? But a least this shows you don't need to do much crazy to get it too work

I noticed that the rear dogbones are just slightly angled at ride height. I tried flipping the belt tensioner 180 deg and mounted the rear diff a little higher to reduce the small angle in the dogbones. Does anyone know it that will make a difference?

It is supposed to make the rear roll more since the weight of the diff is now slightly higher.

Raising the rear diff makes the rear end a lot more loose especially on throttle. Dogbones always try to straighten up when running , so when those are angled they try to push rear tires to the track and give more grip. When you donīt have anything else to try to get more steering, then you may try to raise the diff. More grip is always more speed.

Nice write-up Ed! I found the same thing a couple of months ago when I managed to get hold of 4 mini scales. I had to drop 100 grams in weight after moving to a different state with different rules. I found the car to be slightly unbalanced after adding weight in front and behind the battery to reach 1425g. So if you are running less than that, then offsetting the battery is the way to go.

In time, we could be using saddle packs again, just like we did a decade ago. Now where is my Pro2...

Similar fan mount is available now from R1wurks. Here are some pics of the mount on my TB-03.

Just a question on the split suspension blocks

Are you running them on both the FF and FR , RF and RR or only on one of them?
