So please ask about anything rc related and Ill do my best to answer in a timely manner.
there's a handful of Losi sponsored drivers, including myself, that visit these forums all the time. If you're lucky you'll even see a hodgimoto sighting every now and then

No offense, but with all the "keyboard racers" out there it's hard to take a new member who proclaims himself the "losi expert" and doesn't give his real name seriously. You might know alot, but you also might be a 12 year old kid trying to get some attention on here.

Ok - I'll test the waters.

I'm fairly new and have the XXX-T CR w/BL and LiPo. I've talked to a few people that identified the weight difference between NiMh and LiPo batteries as a potential problem. Some have suggested adding weights around the mid-section to compensate. There is even somebody selling a LiPo plate to sit in the battery holder and essentially bring the car to its normal NiMh weight.

Now to the meat of my question. Is it more advantages to put weight at the extremities of the car (front and/or rear)? I can imagine weight around the center of gravity resulting in greater weight shift during accelleration/braking - which would suggest it may be better to have weight at the COG - but I can also see the weight shift as being too extreme. Putting weights closer to the extremities might provide more static down force and possibly provide more consistant weight distribution during accelleration/braking.

What are your thoughts?

Losiracer12 - does the 12 stand for how old you are?

Also, bprocket has a question that they want answered (although I know about 50% of the normal members on this site can answer his question as well)
