I just finished doing all the math around running a shorty pack and the ESC on the right side of the car last night, and the math just doesn't pan out. (at least with the weight of my electronics) I figured I would have to add ~60 grams of weight to make minimum weight running a shorty. And while that does give you the opportunity to get to dead minimum weight, and at the appropriate corners, I would much rather have 2500 more mah, and be 40 grams over.
(100 gram difference between full and shorty. 60 under with shorty, 40 over with full)
It has always been my school of thought to do your best to reach weight using higher mah, than stick-on-weights. The voltage drop advantage of using a higher mah better will be beneficial in the later minutes of a race, in a spec class. YMMV
