If you do this, you need to move your battery pack out, so yes it will balance the car better. Keep in mind the only thing you can move further in is the receiver, ESC and servo. And the servo will be a little tricky without making a custom outer mount.

Go to page 522 and you'll see another memeber's car that already has this done. This discussion has happened before...

BTW: You don't "need" to cut your chassis to swap the diffs around. You can run the diffs in the raised position and they will clear. This is good if you just want to give it a try to see how the car balances out...
