I can't move anything else. I'm thinking put 20g at RF and 28g at RR. But if I put weight, that is going to change the ride heights right?

I use 56 g to balance out my BMI next to the servo.

SpeediePHATT, can you post pic of your car? Just want to see how you put 56g weight. That is like eight of 7g lead.

that's a sweet car Aku man! What are you planning to race on? I like the rayspeed chassis, but isn't it one of the flexiest chassis they make?

Yeah, This chassis is pretty flexable like xray m18 , but I think original SD has more flex than Rayspeed. I never try the original chassis, so I'm not sure. I don't care the car flex. As long as the chassis flex back and not stay tweak. Haven't try my CGM yet. I race outdoor at parking lot. Still waiting owner to find place for indoor.

What I did was glue the weights together with super glue and servo tape them in place up front to the chassis and against the servo/reciever. When I want more rear weight I have one that I switch to that bolts on the chassis next to the motor where the nerf bars mount on the BMI chassis.

Default Big Q's

SpeediePHATT, I see many car pics of Factory Team Drivers. I don't see them use put weights as many as we needs. Some of them not even have weights. How did they manage to do that?

I have some pros setups that use alot of weight. But I see alot of pictures also and dont see alot of weight either. To balance out my TC3 with the stock tub tho. It only took 14 grams, but the BMI is more balanced design wise. Wheras the tub is heavier on the right side so you dont need as much weight to balance out the batteries. I can change how much I need also by runnig a bigger spur. Just going from a 100 to a 108 spur moves the motor enough to take 21 grams off.

Spur? I don't understand that theory. I still have lots to learn. How did you calculate that?

I know it sounds like alot but how can you argue when the numbers are right there. I got that scale off ebay for 10 bucks. Someone on another forum mentioned moving the motor away from the centerling to increase right side weight so i figured out what the biggest spur I could fit in the car wich was 108 the biggest the LHS had. and weighed it like that. But I have a 100t spur in it now. Believe it or not the difference between a 100 and a 108 I could feel. It screwed up the throttle feel for me it felt flat off the corners and at the end of the straight.

The bigger the spur gear you get, the more the motor is moved to one side shifting the weight.

This is what I use to scale with. I only use one scale. It will only weigh right to left, and front to rear. Then I set tweak on a tweak board or on the track. the platform I built it the exact same height at the scale surface it sits on.
