In fact the battery in makes it worse. SO upfront on the non-servo side LH - its out by 150g - wow.... I can load lead on the front corner of the chassis but that will add weight over all and not specific to that corner.
Guess I am wondering if I should rebuild it again. If its common for this car to be out on that corner.. ????
Balancing my TC3 Tubbie with 3200 Lipo (212g)
LF...308G ...... RF....313G = 621G (48.0 %)
LR...337G ...... RR....341G = 678G (52.0 %)
Total Wht W/O body = 1299G W/B = 1450G.....68 HPI Camaro
(MUCHO SHOO GOO)
I balance it using one 600G scale and 3 3/4 inch plywood blocks. I
use a tweak bar to get it close. Then put the scale under one wheel
compress susp and read scale, carefully move scale to another wheel
compress susp and read scale, Do all four wheels, adjust shocks
accordingly. I had to add a lexan shim to the top of the scale to
get the same level as the ply blocks. Gets close enough for me.
We run 1430g min wht (NOT my choice) 21.5 motor No boost ESCs.
I won 2 mains and finished second once last summer We race on a
sugar water prepped track 80' X150'. Runs great nicely balanced. I
run it once in a while in TC stock and it is competitive. I replaced the
tub with an IRS carbonfiber chassis. So come Aprill I can give that
