According to an article in Race tech magazine overall load transfer depends only on CG heigth and the width of the car's track. Dampers, springs and geometry only controls how the load transfer varies from front to rear and also how it varies as the car passes through the entry, apex and exit of the corner.
It also states that load transfer is bad for grip.
What you said is correct up until the last sentence.
CG height is dynamic, it changes with suspension movement. Your correct, how much it changes depends on the RC, Shocks, Springs, droop etc. Load transfer is not a bad thing. You can adjust it to find traction, or even out tire wear. Too much, and yes, it is bad, so most seek to find a nice balance.
R/C racers don't usually adjust for CG, it changes too much. That and most race-oriented cars have their heaviest items low and fixed on the chassis for a low CG. That is why we play with RC and other suspension adjustments. To change CG, you would probably have to add/move weight around/higher on your chassis.
And with that, i'm off to the track to adjust my RC on the PRO4, at the SOCAL RCWY.
