I think that in Vegas it was about 735 grams with the short pack, and same balance front to rear and side to side. yes I did balance the car at the track using two scales that my friend from Sweden bring sow I know it is the same as using the standard lipo.

Plus I had the only BMI of 17 12th scales at the track and there where a lot of people that thought the front end looked cool

This kind of got lost on the previous page, so congrats on the podum finish.

some suggestion... make sure ur ride height is correct... I seen the cooperhead in person last night make sure the front end is equal and balance... But another big thing.. U wanna run the same compound as others brand wise def dont wanna mix.. As with the carpet fuzzies nothing you can do.. thats why BLACK front are suggested they dont pick up dirt,fuss or any other junk on the track in or out of the groove.. i suggest black front yellow rear at 42.5 front and 44.5 rear.. full compound rear, dabber front... Another thing i recomend is dont mix and match companys for tires.. as parm/jaco is a different rbber as crc... plus rim stiff ness.. ur gonna wanta flexy rim... for bite..

Jaco and CRC are both really good. BSR is also very good. Yellows are not the best if you hit stuff. They chunk very easily. Try an Orange if you run Jaco or a gray/White for BSR. Graylow for CRC. The outer edge is harder and will take a little more abuse.

Now i have just few more questions after doing more reading lol..

Im running a blue center spring should i upgrade to a harder spring such as gold or red? And when would i know if i needed to go to a stiffer spring how would the car act when that change is neded.

Also i dont have a front end brace on the car would it smart to add one?
Will the 12r5.1 brace fit the copperhead?

Harder spring will increase your on-power steering but decrease your off-power steering. I usually upgrade to a harder spring, when car feels edgy when entering a corner (off-power) but has understeer going out (on-power) of the corner. If that is not the case then I would stay with a lighter spring, it allows me to quickly steer the car into desired direction while off-power without loosing much speed and then I go straight to the next corner using as much straight lines as possible. Depends a lot on track layout and driving style.
