For any one who is willing to spend good money on a quality product these buttons are the bomb!!! Alot of work went into these to make sure you could achieve an accurate balance on your car. If you want to cheap it out go rite ahead, but most of us will support the companies that revolutionize R/C!!!
Good Luck Guys

I've got to say this is one of the more ingenious products I've seen in a while. Kinda makes you say "why didn't I think of that".

You'll never be able to make everyone happy though. That's the Internet and it will never change. A good company like IRS with good products will overcome that stuff without so much as a hiccup though.

fastharry,
Glad you like the Balance Buttons. I like your last comment.
When starting to use the buttons, set you car on them and hold it level then release it and find out which way it tips. You then need to move you electrics around and hold it level again and see if it tips to one side again. Sometimes you have to add small lead weights to finish balancing your car. Do this till the car sets level on the Balance Buttons. When done tip the car to either side and make sure it tips at the same rate and you are done. You should find that your car will need less loading on the tweak screws or springs to get the car neutral.

SlamMan,
You are right! I just got tired of it. I quess it is a case of, putting mouth into motion before putting mind into gear, on their part. We as an industry do try to make available to the racers quality products at a fair price but like you said you can't make everyone happy.
Thanks for your support.

Dave

Here is a new tip for the balance buttons. To keep them in place on the chassis while working on it put a dot of diff lube between the chassis and balance buttons. This will allow you to pick up the car and make adjustments.

guy.....I just wanted to let you know,I took the balls out last night for some tues night racing.......

I have to say,they were the hit of the night........everyone was amazed how Accurate they were........cars that are balanced stand right up....yet,put a 7 gr weight on the side,and the car tumbles....there is no uncertainty like the pin balancers(like when they appear that the car is stuck in the middle,yet you know the car is unbalanced...)...

plus,they are way easier to use....no having to find the sweet spot on the pins.....


they were realy well liked.........

I dont seem to be having the same results as the rest of the guys. There is a bit of a flat spot on the ball where the pin is interted and the car kinda gets "stuck" on this keeping the chassis level. Takes quite a bit of weight to get the car to trip over this and fall over. Anyone else having this issue?

Another guy at my track had that same issue. He found a solution, but I can't remember what it was . . .I think it ahd to do with raising on end or tilting it to get it to rest in front of or behind the flat spot where theres a true hemisphere.
