But geez my buggy sure does feel better in stock with a battery that's 20 grams lighter
Are you using any aftermarket parts for your mid motor configuration?

No I'm not using any aftermarket parts for the reason of weight... Actually the only aftermarket part I have in there is the jconcepts front axle conversion... However I did do the the rear motor esc tray mod for mm config which might be adding a lil weight.

But if you run the esc on top of the battery there's extra components you need to use anyway so it probably evens out.

I was just wondering how much grams it saves from stock to mip puck system. I also know rotating mass makes a bigger difference as well

I used to have an original 22 and I ran mid motor with a shorty pack. I have not had time to look build my 2.0 to know if the shorty will work. I have heard from others that it will not and just making sure on here. Thanks

I run my shorty pack under the same brace as the saddles. A little roomy on the sides but foam fills that void nicely. If I need a little bit more traction I run the saddles and that puts the extra weight down low. Run shorty when traction is high.

Well I don't know. I don't have to have it I guess, losi does make real good 1/10 plastic so I don't really need it.

Wildcat if you are having issues at W3 go talk to Matt Moeller or Chris Schneider in the shop. Both of their 22s are great in stock.

So for each week's race lately, I've decided to try something different on my buggy. Last week, I gave Frank Root's setup a try. It felt pretty good, something just felt off to me. This week, I'm going to try a different layout on the chassis and mount the esc down low. I had an extra front battery brace, so I drilled it and mounted it to the top of the rear bulkhead supports, which makes a very nice "battery box". I wanted to try moving my lipo forward anyway to hopefully get more overall steering (also added 1mm more droop in rear than front). Here's a pic of my new layout (low profile servo helps: Solar D770....$17 from Hobbypartz). This is for a medium traction, outdoor track.
