a few weeks ago, lol. we race on sundays starting at noon, racing is free (yes free, no strings attached) and we support personal transponders, and run j-lap software. also there is a fully stocked (no xray parts thoug ) hobby shop, but alot of other stuff. so far we run a stock, 19t pro stock, and mod class. and a novice, but i dont think that applies to you.

The problem with the '6 a side' configuration is that the motor is still placed in the rear center of the car. Cars like the MR-4 and TC3 have all the electronics, including the motor, on one side of the chassis and the batteries on the other side. To balance the '6 a side' batteries on the T1, you would probably need a lot of weight on the electronics side.... Comments?

I kind of figured that but wasn't too sure. I just needed to hear it from people who have experience with the car. I guess It's time to make a few saddle packs.

If you use 6x1 configuration, forget about the balance. Instead, take advantage of the different weight distribution. It make more sense this way. Otherwise, why not use 3x2 battery to achive a better balance.

Because the 6x1 pack will give you more 'front' weight distribution.......

it looks as if it's better to keep the packs 3+3 form. That sure is alot of weight required on the right side of that car.

Then, how about 3x2 battery in this way? 3 in the upper left corner, 3 in the lower right corner
We got many slots to try.

wolf that battery set up is good for your low turn mods as it wiil set your car entering the corner and it will rotate pretty fast from the center out for stock it just scub to much speed through the corners
mike

if your not drive a x-ray you should just go home

I should have read your post alittle closer. I'm not currently running the c-hubs as of yet.

simulatedwood go to the stock set up add weight to the left and right rear stand the shocks up in the rear to provide the nessisary rear traction. now the c-hub provides a ton of steering entering and from the center out so go 2 holes rear and one hole in front with the shocks. try that and if the car rotates throuhg the corners to fast fine tune the front and rear droop. go with white springs at first then try the next hardest after that to tune to your driving style this is a good nuetral starting point for tires i use speedmind 28mm 45shore front 40 or 42 rear depending on how much traction the track has hope this gets you going in the right direction good luck

With the small & light electronics being used right now, the weight was "disguised" as an ESC, servo, & receiver....so the weight must stick it's ugly head out in the form of real weight.

Don't let your eyes fool you....just because weight is added, look at the reasons. If anything, having the small & light electronics, now you have that many more tuning options and placing the weight exactly where the car needs it....use this to your advantage....don't listen to the "mind's eye" ...listen to your stop watch! hehe
