The cars are so similar now setups work for just about all of them. If the grip is really high cars feel better with the battery forward.

My question is, when mounting the battery inline to get more weight towards the front, where should the balance point be on the chassis for proper weight distribution between fore and aft? Should it be dead center between front and back or should it be somewhere between center and back? If between center and back, how far behind the center?
You might also try the LiPo side-by-side. That gives a whole bunch of room for front-rear weight adjustment:

Thanks guys. This project has been on a slow burner for me. I'll try to post pics when I get it done.

Howard, good to see I'm not the only one trying to keep an older chassis alive.

Red Bull Fixx - I'm looking at your front end and it looks like you added extra spacers to get more camber gain on the front end. Is this something I need to consider in my setup or is this just specifically for you because you like it twitchy?

After years of truing tires on a drill press, I finally treated myself to an automatic truer. Mine's an Ofna, but from what I can tell most of the automatic truers look like they came from the same factory. The automatic feed makes a much nicer cut than I could do with manual feed on my drill press, and it's just plain fun to watch!

CRC makes a "True-All" arbor that works great. It was so nice that I sold off the other arbors that came with the truer.

It goes along with trying to keep an older driver alive.

Also, feel free to razz me (in an appropriate thread) about my XRay T1's.

Howard,

Even though that championship was 20 years ago...I'm impressed.

Enjoy the tire truer...and all your racing.

Bill

Now I'm showing my age: I meant Ofna, not Integy. (I think the arbors I sold were Integy, so that name stuck in my mind.) Both Integy and Ofna make automatic truers.
