Take the shocks off, put a straight edge vertically against your wheels and play with the chassis to move travel position in your arms, you'll see what they do. Change the arm length position inner/outer, starting angle upper/lower and think of them moving in circles.

Thanks. Which battery would that be?

If you know a LiFe battery pack from Hobbyking that fits it would be great.

Thanks!

With this pack I had to notch the battery holder because of the position of the wires. Once I got the wires away from the middle shaft pulley . It was perfect

Great! That's the one I had in mind. I use those packs on my MBX7. Do you know if there are any other batteries from other brands that would fit without modifications?

Best!

The lrp one look nice, if I could get them at the right price I'd probably try them.

I have not ever tried to balanced the car left to right.

I don't know how the balance works out.

I use this battery:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...Lipo_Pack.html

It's only 950 mah but lasts around 50-60 minutes with a set of Sanwa SRG BLSV2 servo's on high response mode. It's important to set the end points right, otherwise the servos will draw a lot more current.

Because the exhaust side of the car is already heavy compared to the servo side with low-pro servos I wanted to use a light battery.
It's also pretty thin which allows the battery tray to be lowered by 2,5mm.

With the somewhat heavy Hipex low noise exhaust I use I have to add 50 grams to the right side to balance the car.
With a normal exhaust I think it will balance out almost perfectly.
