Unless you are trying to get less steering, take off that weight on the ft end and try the Team set-up`s...

More weight in the rear, means more weight transfer to the front... and more weight over the rear tires for more forward bite. This is a plus-plus.

You have a lot to learn...

First , next time at the track use some extra weight on the ft , and feel ....

This is a great way for you to understand....


Use weight on the ft end under high traction condition`s....

Like , slicks or blue groove conditions....

It helps keep the nose down when punch out of the corner...(wheelie`s)

also

help`s smooth the steering because you have a whole lot of steering under those condition`s...

however ...
sometimes , when the track is extreme low traction, it also helps smooth the steering there as well....


I`m not trying to be a expert or say don`t use weight on the ft !

Rather wish to share with you why and when ....

No it should be 100% smoooooooooooooth as buttah. I would recommend just buying the diff rebuild kit and some new carbide balls and start fresh.

the rb5 has the 1/4oz. weight in the front i guess i could take it out again and try it but i remeber when i put it there i got more steering ?? i dunno.

I will try more weight in the rear of the truck too and see how it is.

george does not run an rb5. take his advice with a grain of salt as it pertains to your buggy. it might still be right, but he is speaking from a b4 perspective.

as for the t4. I run 1 oz in front of my tranny, 1/4 oz in the back slots of chassis, or another 1/2 oz total.. that is before I worry about making minimum weight.
