I'm in a bit of a pickle as far as the balance of my car goes. My batteries are quite heavy, and even with large/heavy ESC, motor fan, etc., I have to add almost 50 grams of weight to the electronic's side of the car to get it to balance left-right. I end up way over our weight limit of 1380g, by 40-50 grams IIRC.

Would it make any difference at all if I were to flip the drive train configuration to the NiMH configuration with the belts flipped? I'm afraid it won't make much difference at all, since it doesn't actually transfer much (if any) weight in and of itself.

I'm just thinking of ways that I can balance the chassis without having to add so much weight to the car.
