So I think my question is more for the mi5 guys why is the car so heavy on the motor side and how did you get the left to right side weight right without adding to a car that is a pig already ?

It's that way because the motor is out a bit off the centreline of the car compared to some others.

Honestly though, I seriously think your worrying too much about it. I have never corner weighted my car, just balanced it to get it close left to right. And then tune the weight balance for performance. 100% of the time I run the battery in the rear position, and have 20g mounted at the front of the car, and 5g in the middle. The car is heavy yes, but it can be lightened up.

I still think lost of the issues your experiencing are down to setup and/or tyre prep. Sent a pm yesterday to try and help out.

I am using an intercomp scale which provide me weight of all the corner of my car accurately. But there must not be more difference in the weight of each corner rather than the front and back side.

nice and compact. My cars were way off, but got it within 10g with a little collar adjustment which you can't measure normally.
