My car is working great...balanced left to right.
I have just little more weight to back, battery is in back position.
i am using the long belt on the battery side. then tape the battery in as close as possible to the belt (Use the carbon fiber battery stops glued to battery).
If you are comfortable with 1430 then run it that way.
if you lower the weight you may have to re-balance the car.
No hurt in trying to see if it changes anything for you.
it may be as easy as just added a few grams to one side to balance with the lighter battery.
You're motor may run cooler with less weight.
