Slightly off-topic - whats currently the best engineered car?
Doesn't have to have engine in middle but offer good balance

Don't see what the engine location has to do with it, but the best engineered car on the market these days would probably have to be the Awesomeatix.

It was part of original post criteria. I guess maybe better balance.

Here's my prototype car that I developed and raced this year. This is about as tight as its possible to get the weight distribution on a 4wd car with the available electronics.

The car works superbly and is a big improvement over the standard layout

That is a nice looking car! I like the simple layout.
I see the extra weights on the right side to balance it out, but when i look at what's on the right i don't see why you need them?

- Also, your diffs are both on the right side, if you were to flip them, you might be able to save some weight, no?

I normally run a Novak Sentry data logger (not fitted in this picture as it's from quite an early run of the car). That goes in the empty space behind the motor and with that fitted very little balancing weight is needed (about 10g).

Flipping the diffs would mean longer layshafts, so more rotating mass plus less space for the radio gear (the space being the main issue; its very tight in there!).

There's a full thread about the car here:
