Arrow b4 heavy setup

I know this is old news, but i just started racing again. My b4 is pushing at low speeds, some guys said i should add weight(heavy setup). How much and where is the spots to put the weight or can i try something else to help the pushing. Running b4 with lipos and brushless. No big jumps, car runs great except for pushing. Thanks for any info i have green springs all the way around with 30 wt oil and 1 degree camber in front....everything else stock stats

Try this set up if you have LiPo Brushless. Should not be a need for the heavy set up.

What type of track are you running on?

Try the factory set up with the shock placement, on the shock tower and a-arms. Front and Rear.

Lighten the oil weight to 25w front, 20w rear. With the lipo battery the 30w may be to thick, causing your suspention to move slower, causing weight transfer to be delayed and the front to slide. ( I can picture what I am trying to explain, but if its not clear, sorry.)

Also what surface and condition of track are you trying to dirve on? If your on dusty clay, for example, you wont turn easily no matter the setup.

The weight you pretty much have to play around with. I use a123 batteries which are a different type of lipo that ware way lighter than lipo's so I use 3oz on my front nose, for your matter I would try 1oz to 1.5oz in the nose 0.5oz on each side of the middle part of the chassis. Using drag brake can also make it turn better apart from the mechanical setups
