Default 1/10 weight balance

What is a general rule of thumb for weight balance fore and aft on a 1/10 electric truck.

That would sound logical,although I forgot to mention I was inquiring about 2wd balance. I am outfitting my basher Rustler (dont laugh it's an experiment) with a dual deck RCM chassis. At this point in the build I can set the Batt,ESC,and reciever for optimal balance.

Well weight balance would be better suited for buggies, since they have lighter front ends then do the trucks. You can shift the weight closer to the front.
