If this is a reasonable hypothesis, then it frees up about 20g of mass for me to either ditch, or be able to move around the car for tuning with no detriment to total weight.

Thoughts?
I run Futaba BLS551 and BLS571 and they are around 130 oz-in (btw, not oz/in) and they are perfect. 120 should be fine.

Thanks for tour thoughts and letting me know what tou run!

Im aware of the unit nomenclature, its just that "-" and "/" are right next to each other on my phone keyboard and Ive got fat fingers and a lack of desire to make the correction LOL

Oh and of course we could always get off into the weeds and geek out over the argument that we really should be using nM or at least being more accurate with our butchered antiquated MKfS metric and throwing the f for force in our kgf-cm ratings.

I was looking at these and some other brands, but they do not seem to be ROAR approved.

It is my understanding that any hard case lipo is ROAR approved. I have used the Redline batteries at major events and was never questioned about them.

I'm currently trying out a Bittydesign Seven20 body on a new USGT build, and I can't get it to stop understeering for the life of me.
Does anyone have tips on a body that would provide better rotation?
I see a lot of guys running Bwoah, but I'm really tempted to try the new Ahura since it looks so nice. Any feedback on it yet?

Without knowing what chassis you run, I'd generally suggest camber and roll centre adjustment, possibly softer springs in the front for better bite.

Gonna throw this at you. Speed is much more important than torque. I have plenty of high torque servos here. Only a few are fast enough to lead to smooth driving.

Anyone else notice the new USGT wheels rub on the rear T4 arms?
