BagofSkill is inspiring me to get the IRS board I'm gonna have to try it out, pretty sure I can get the car much more fine tuned with it.

Fine, I go out and I just got the Integy unit, it comes with three very nice machined stands. You can use two or four units if you believe it's going to be more accurate or faster. I tweak my car within a few minutes, making sure the cross weight is the same Rear Front +Left Rear = Left Front +Right Rear. The fact is it's not as time consuming as most of you think. The unit comes with calculation worksheets which really helps the whole process. Also I end up with 52.2% left and 47.8% right weight distribution, I run a Losi XXX-S (I mill everything out, it's about 2.5 ounce under legal weight) and I probably can't make the left and right even unless I won't to add weight to the right side. It brings up another interesting point, I think I may not want 50% cross weight afterall. Since my car's left side is heavier, that means left corner is going to be smaller and turn right might push a little. I'll play with it somemore at the track and see how it goes. If the theory is right, the right front and left rear wheels needs a little more spring tension if the car's left side weights more.
