Well done Henry (speed1) ...

You are putting too much effort in this hobby/sport and hope you will be even more successful in the next season's championship races of I.R.M.C.C. in Malta.

Keep it up
Mark

Looks like you have been pretty busy lately. Looks like you have Cuda rolling along pretty good.

Guys roughly how much ballast are you adding to the radio side of the car to even up the weight dist. and where are you putting it ??

Please no replies saying it's different for everyone, as i know that, but would also guess at around a 5gram variance for those that have got it right, as i would guess all top level racers are using Gp3300's and similar sized electric's ??

Me i use :-

GP3300
ko 2143 servo
ko 2000j speedo
ko micro reciever
monster stock motors

Meciless

I used 35g on the side of the motor and 15g on the side of the batteries on the rear.I raced in stock class last season wich we used 3000mah batteries but next season i will be using 3300 wich are a little heavier so i alredy removed the 15g on the battery side.The car was handling perfect with that weight.The cuda is the lightest car i ever had so you must be carefull were you put the weight but it's not that critical.I have done a new chassis myself now which i removed the holes underneat the electrics so i can get more weight on the motor side and keep it low as possible.When i balance the car i will tell you exactly what i used on 3300 and the new chassis.

Thanks speed1

I thought about 30g infront of the motor would do it.Although i would suggest it needs to be placed on the outer edge of the chassis ??

In fact you got the point exactly.I put the 35g besides the speed control at the back of the motor on the edge of the chassis.I used the x-ray weight which are in form of strips and they fit exactly on the edge.
