Yeah, I put DB12R servo mounts on my Mi3. I had to drill and countersink a new rear mounting hole. The reason for this was to gain about 6mm more electronics room. The servo certainly is not going to move either

My 3200 Orion LIPO packs are so light, I am planning to buy some 3600's but they are not much heavier. When I look at the pics in the thread I see LIPOs, but no added weight to the car.

Is the Core5000 the same weight as an NIMH 4200 pack?

My fusion 4200 pack is 430 grams and my LIPO 3200 is 195 grams...
Where and how in the world am I going to put about 235 grams of weight in the car only on the right side of the car?

On the Xrays at my local club they have built these large u-shaped brackets that hangoff the side of the car around the battery...all of the weight is outside of the chassis, that cannot be helping with driveability.

I thought about putting some weight under the battery, but 235g is alot of weight to fit under that battery.

Any ideas or options out there?

What are you guys doing to overcome this problem?
I seem to recall the Core 5000 weighs 277g (give or take).

Get some Nexus weights to go in the cell slots, then spread the rest around the Lipo pack, not all of it on the outside.
