Jon probably has a bit too much weight on the batt side. We usually put 3/4oz directly under the front belt in front of the motor mount, 3/4 oz across the chassis between the motor and the speedo and 1/2oz in the front bumper right above where it bolts to the chassis. If you have really light electronics you can put another 1/4oz in front or behind the servo output arm.

I have a 10g weight behind the motor, 5g under the front belt beside the receiver, 5g under the servo horn and another 5g just behind that (between the 'horn' weight and the receiver).
Sorry, don't know the imperial conversions.

I was a bit paranoid that I may have biased the weights a bit too much towards the front, I will be running asphalt on Sunday so I'll guess I'll see.

On carpet with foam tires we moved the link to the outer hole on the hub and made a new camber bracket (EC rubber spec) to move the inner link further out. There is no need to make this mod for the EC Rubber Car because its already there

Adrian, actually the weight in the rear is intentional at this point. It's biased a more towards the rear for additional initial weight transfer.

If I don't like the feel, I'll be centralizing more weight near the spine and slightly more between the motor and speed control as we discussed.

It's all good...

I use the gauge, it is packed up in my boxes right now, I can only guess how far it goes, but I am sure it past + - 5 degrees. I have to say it is one of the nicest camber gauges I have seen or used.

Not as nice as the ARC Eclipse Magnetizer
