My local track doesn't have a minimum weight and, well since the Steel tray hasn't been available, I've just been running the plastic one. I started with that at the Nats last week and then borrowed Matt's Steel one... I can't say the steel one gave the car more steering or made it more planted, it just felt better all over. Now I changed a ton of things on my car for the Nats track that is so much higher bite than my home track. I dunno how that will translate to here and may not be able to find out till fall (they're getting the 1/8-scale track ready and plan on running there now instead of indoors )

i used to run a steel lipo tray but to balance the car left to right i needed to add a lot of weight thus, it throws my car over the minimal weight 50-60 grams.

matt, what was your gearing for nationals, and what degree hubs do you run in the front- 3 or 4?

I have found with the plastic lipo tray I can use the weight I need to add to balance the car left and right. I have added most of the weight on the right side with the light receiver. I run the sphere TC ecs that is heavy to begin with on the left side. I am also running the KO 2413 servo that is light. I would rather have a full size servo for added weight. I am also using a Core 5000 lipo. Over all I think the car handles best with the lipo and plastic tray. I have my car at 1425Grams with the body. And have the car balanced very well left to right. Oh I almost forgot. I have 2 25mm fans on the rear for more weight.

I'm on carpet with rubber tires. The problem only presents itself in "long" corners. I don't have the problem with 90's or 180's, but there are a couple decreasing radius corners with the current layout and I just cannot seem to keep the rear of the car planted. Everything I do to try and resolve the issue makes the car suffer everywhere else. I was hoping that somebody would chime in with "it's because of running light," but now I am not sure.

yea, my issue is with the more looping corners as well.. the back end seems to hold for a half beat, then just fade away.. i'm going to have to try some pretty radical link positions and such to see if i can affect it either way.. i'll let you know my results... it's both on and off throttle by the way..

Just asking, but have you placed the car on a tweak station? I know with the type R if your spring tweak is off your car will handle really crapy. You just do not want to set the same ride height all the way around on the car. If i do that my car handles bad. Your problem may be as simple as tweak.

i've set the tweek several times, and my works station is actually a custom corner weight board, so it's dead on..
