OKAY OKAY I WAS WRONG (in "MY" eyes its easier to stiffen the rear to get more steering then changing the battery position)
Exactly what I do mate! Changing the centre shock spring and/or side springs is MUCH easier! Generally, the stiffer the springs, the quicker the steering response but watch how much additive you put on the fronts as it'll be a nightmare to drive else!

At my local track, BMI and AE run thier batteries sideways and handle pretty well, I personally haven't seen a CRC with the battery sideways.

Don't know that I even want to test this and have to move all my electronics around. I'm not going to go against the grain, I'll mount my battery like most other CRC guys do, but was still curious if that setup works....I mean after all, CRC LE chassis is capable???

I know that Andy Griffiths ran his at the rear across the chassis and kicked ass with it but he is an amazing driver!
I don't really want to do that as I would have to but the encore shock and mess about with cell tape again!

I have decided to try this setup. Only thing I had to do is drill three hole for battery holder. This is a similar setup to AE and BMI. If it doesn't work, I'll just remove the single battery holder and put it long ways down the middle.

Hi, This is the set up I use as it seems this will give me the right balance
for the car. Has worked fine up to now. Good Traction and steering.
Regards,
Norman2

Thanks for the input Norman. I thought about trying that but didn't want to alter my shock mount setup. This way I can quickly remove the battery holder and run it long ways if need be. I don't feel like it's too far forward because it's similar to where BMI and AE run theirs and at out track, they do a lot of winning.

I won't get to test this til Wednesday, but hoping to be pleasantly surprised?
I was looking at your tires, is that setup for pavement?...On our carpet setup we cut them down to roughly 2.08 or so...give or take and run them down from there. Never seen anyone run them with that much foam, but then again I haven't seen them run on pavement, if in fact that is how they run them?

Thanks again for the vote of confidence that your setup works.

Looks like I might have to scratch how I have my battery. I put my electronics behind the battery, finished setting the car up and it is so left side heavy...can't add enough weight to balance it. Even if I put all my electronics on the right, still don't think that would be enough.

I will mess with it all day tomorrow and see what I can do.

It is now balanced and not tweaked. Few things left then race it Wednesday night!

Good to know Norman. I thought maybe that was the case. We cut ours down around the 2.08 and usually get about 3 race weeks out of the fronts, rears last a little longer. Great looking cars you got there!
