Thank you.

I see you're from Oz, where do you buy your Yokomo stuff here? Do we have a distributor?

Its important to find what works for your car and track conditions. If you have too much steering the weight up front may work for you, if you need a little more add it to the rear. Thats what I have found anyway

HTH
What I have seen from the other guys at the track, is that they are using a servo saver, and they hav not any weight in the front. So I think I will try to take them off, and see what happens. Otherwise I will pay a visit to my local tire shop, and get some small 10 gr weights with adhisive on, and use some instead.

how do I get my BDWXi chassi balanced ? I am thinking about balancing it from left and right side. Normaly there is 2 small holes underneath the chassi, where it is possible to put a spike, and then see wich side the chassi falls to. How do you guys do it ?

More weight towards the front of the car equals more steering, and less rear grip.

Moving weight towards the rear of the car adds rear traction, takes away steering, makes the car more stable under both acceleration and braking, and can encourage some degree of wheel standing in extreme traction or rough conditions.
