Default Balance Weight buggy X-5 Style

Pls let me know, how many grams you all XXX-S/G+ owner put at our left side of chassis for L/R Balancing with these battery :
- GP3300, 3700, IB3600, and IB3800

I think balance weight will heavier, anyone ever split 2 cells on left side (such as Losi XX-4/XXX-4 based buggy X-5 style)?

Are you racing or playing in the street? One of the first things I would get for racing or playing would be the black belt kit. If your just playing in the steet and you want to go faster, you need a faster motor and higher capacity batteries for longer run times. For a higher level of racing, try to lighten the car up with ti screws/hinge pins/ball studs, molded graphite kit, ceramic bearings/diff-trust balls are all high performace parts. JRX-S shocks are lighter and better. I have not mounted mine yet but I think they will work if you use AE springs and shock perches. Just my two cents.

I would start with a 22t in 48p and go from there. After a few mins of running it, check the motor, see if it's too hot to put your finger on it for a second or two. It's an easy way of checking your gearing. It should be hot but not too hot that you can't touch it. It can get hot being under geared or over geared. It's not the best way, but it's the cheap and easy way to check. If so, go up or down a few teeth. If you tell me what tires you are running I can check and let you know. Hope this helps.

the XXX-S seems to be light on the front tire/motor side of the chassis. I recommend putting your receiver ontop of the servo and move the speedo next to the servo. Hope this helps.
