What kit. And battery. That sounds like a perfect set up.

I run the new GV2 Academy with a protek 4000 lipo

A guy in Canada made the plates and sold them for $14 shipped...

He's in the kyosho threads....OCM tuned or something like that

Sure makes it easy and clean, rather than duct taping crap all over my car

Thanks for the lead. Thats a good way to keep it uniform and the weight low.
I was running the XXXT with Max Amp 6000's. There was just enough room under the pack for some thing like that.

Did you make any adjustments to the springs or oil or pistons to get the same feel or did it just react faster with less weight.?
I'm bet it jumped Higher.

Lighter damping in the rear and lighter spring rate usually do it. The front usually does not require as much of a change on a 2wd car. Roar minimum weight is 52oz. for 2wd and 56oz. for 4wd. Most 2wd cars with NiMh cells come in between 3 and 6 oz over weight. My cars with GTb's and Orion 4800 packs weigh around 1oz over the limit with no weight added.

Thats sweet.

I had to add weight to mine to keep it on the ground. Insane wheelies.

I'm using the same one. (OCM / Johnnyboy)
Keeps the weight uniform and as someone mentioned you could put it under or over the battery.

In the rear I run Losi pink springs on new tires and Kyosho silver on worn tires and 30wt oil, for the front I run Kyosho silver springs and 25wt oil. I'm running a Mamba Max 6900 and race on a high grip indoor carpet offroad track. Rear tires are silver ifmar studs.
