Hi i was wondering if some one who uses brushless and nimh could tell me how they balanced their cars.

I just recently got some scales and some weights and I managed to balance it right to left but the corner weights are way out from each other so any help would be good.

I just got done racing the 10.5 class in the Bending corners mayham race...
race format was 1qual and 1main x4 different layouts... 1 point goes to tq and 50 points for 1st, 49 for 2nd and so on for each layout....

I got out to a slow start in the first layout qualifying 3rd and finished 5th...
I TQ'd and won the 2nd round, Qualified 2nd and finished 2nd in the 3rdrd, I had a chance to win it but bobbled, I qualified 2nd and finished 1st in the final layout to take the overall win....

The only change I did to the car all day is change my tires from some worn out rp30s to sorex 36 mounted on yokomo wheels and superthin firm inserts....
