Has someone any idea how they do this? Use the LRP 5600 LCG LiPo in mod!

The battery has 275g. Even when I use the LRP 6000 with 295g I have to add 60g to reach the 1350g. Now if using LCG I would have to add 80g! And the left/right balance is way off. I am using REDS motor/ESC combo and alu screws on top like most do. But the electric equipment should not have such a different weight of most other brands. OK tires can have different weight but the balance would be still off!

Look at the car of Šimurda Kuba!

How much out are you left to right?
If you need 50g for instance go to your local sheet metal supplier any get a lipo size piece of SS cut to go under you cell that should do it, take a scale with you and weigh an offcut

Hey

I have ran with both. Alot depends on tyres and radio equipment. My car balances best with the 6000 but its possible to run lcg also with a bit more weight. Also playing with radio gear placement makes a big difference to balance. Indoor tyres i run around 80g on my car.

Regards
Olly

Hi,

is there a reason why the weight is being placed in the corners of the chassis and not in the center? I see in the pictures from ETS that team drivers have lot of the weights left and right of the steering rack, and left and right behind the motor.

I assumed it was best to cram it all in the center between the battery and the electronics. Even to change the front/rear balance - isn't it better to put the weight on the center line, e.g. between the steering posts?

Hey,

Weight is put in the corners as it all wont fit in the middle of the car or it will be too close to the belt. The belt flaps around a lot at full speed so any contact with a lead weight could damage it. I have a little bit of weight in between the speedo and lipo but its very low down so clears belt ok, anymore it would hit.

try put weight on the point most far from the center and as low as possible.
try below the receiver, receiver is much lighter then the weight istself.

Why most far from the center?

Because that adds the most weight and is more effective.
