I have been playing around with the weight and figured it out. The battery holders are too heavy. I also had to add 1 oz of weight to the electronics side under reciever and fan and remove the battery stop and shift the battery closer to the center of the chassis without hitting the belts. i am gonna make another battery stop and battery holder out of carbon fiber. I will keep you posted. Also this is with a 330g battery

update!! I actually used the stock battery stop and shaved as much as I could to move the battery close to center without touching the belt.

car is now balancing. It would always fall to the battery side.

Your battery weighs 330g and you’ve added approximately 30g in weight. How much does your car weigh in race ready trim? I have the aluminum chassis, short shocks, ti turnbuckles, ti screws, ti layshaft, 300g battery pack, 20g lead weight on electronics side, low profile Sanwa SRG-BL servo, plastic battery stops, and Protoform Mazda Speed lt wt body and I’m right at the 1380g weight limit.

Take the battery holders out, they don't really do anything,
I haven't lost a battery or had one move since I removed them, the balance of the car was better.

I'm using the Leespeed Spur gears that I purchased at Team EA Motorsports. They've been great in 17.5 blinky TC, I'm sure they are up to the task for Super Stock and modified racing. Another popular option is Panaracer Spur gear.
