Don't worry, I think the guys haven't cut the wing down - on the Mazda it is massive...well above the roof line!
I just found this out today from the Xray forum - but I'll wait and see. I didn't notice this with my EVO III during the winter.

Never thought of doing that

The weights won't un-tweak your car, but will improve the weight balance. Have a look in the FAQ, depending upon servos and radio gear, I think the weight varies from 60 to 100 grams to the left of the tank.
If you've got Ray Wood's Winternats DVD, check out Michael Salven's 710 - you can see an Xray weight bolted to the chassis by the tank.

To tweak your car, follow Julius' method in the FAQ in my signature - this is the best tweak method and the most accurate

I just had my first real race today w/ the 710, and all I can say is WOW!!!! What a great car. After having switching from a TC3, this car is great, and has already saved me money. I only broke a F bumper mount all weekend, and got 2nd in the A at our regional race.

GO SERPENT!!!!!!!

The funny thing is, NTC3 is the world champion car just like Evolva that breaks here and there
