Default Top Heavy

When you pick your car up, does the nose go down? My front end seems to be heavier then the back, not balanced. Any suggestions, help? Or is this normal?

Well I finally got my kit together, just need to get my charger back from warranty to charge up my Receiver Packs. I do have a two questions about the stock set-up.

I have gone over the whole car to make sure I have the correct shims/washers at each designated area for the suspension settings. I have opted to leave out the allen screws that limit down travel. Everything looks good a feels good; however, why is there so much rear negative camber? with my old RPM camber gauge the reading came out to 3.5 degrees on both sides.

The other question is that when I roll the car back and forth it does not seem to track straight back and forth. With the wheels straight after rolling the car forth and back 4-5 times the car will move to the left at least six inches. Kind of zig zags. Is this normal for any car since nothing is perfect? I know things are not perfect, but I like things symmetrical.

Regarding the starter box. The single motor 12v battery setup is stronger by far then the 2 stick pack double motor. Trust me, I have both types. I know people who have replaced the duel motors with 19turn mod motors and 3300mah stick packs for starting power close to the single motor with gel cel, but thats somwhere around $80 to $100 in hop ups.

The one advantage to the duel stick pack/motor box is the light weight.

One last thing. If you think a bump (airplane) starter is easier then using the starter box, then your starter box isn't set up properly. You need to adjust the pins on the top of the box so it holds your car securely with the flywheel in the proper position over the starter wheel. Then you just press down to start. I had to work with mine for a bit before I got it just right. Just take your time, its worth it. I have the OFNA one and needed to remove one of the springs so I didn't have to press down so hard to get the flywheel to engage.
I also have the Ofna dual box setup. The box start's the car the car up easily actually, but when it gets stuck at TDC I have turn it over manually. The dual motor box is said to have the same torque as the single motor, which is true, but it has LESS RPM. I'm using a 12v batt. I've finished messing with twin packs since 1-2yrs ago; they don't last long enough. As for the pegs, the flywheel is too high for the rubber wheel to come in contact so it doesn't work.

Yeah, it was hard to see, but after zooming in on the picture I saw Hara's RX mounted to the THR servo. I'll try that out and see how it looks.

Anyone notice their R40 tracking straight with ZERO toe in and little or no camber as opposed to -1 or more toe in with more camber? I tried it and it accelerates in a straight line much better and corners without spinning out.

Get a starter box by which your chassis is lying flat on it. Reason is when you try starting your engine with those starter box with the rear jack up might bend your chassis when it is hot.
