Mini weight

Postby BODYMOT » Tue Jul 27, 2010 12:20 pm

A question on M05 weight, What weight are most people running with shells?
Have balanced car left to right just wondered what weight most people are running.
I am running 1360g :o with Lipo, personal transponder and body on. Have no weight in front bumper,
the body is Kamtec Anglia which is about 96g. At the moment it’s about same weight has my T3 X-ray Touring car.
Perhaps have too much blue bits on :lol: .

don't go too light Ben because you need to bias the weight up front to keep the wheels down but saying that I added 20g of weight to mine, just in front of the rear shock tower to stop the rear coming round on turn in.

I have tried weight in the front bumper but that just gives horrendous oversteer.

Some people say put 60 to 70g under the servo but I've tried it a personally felt it made the chassis very lazy.

Nobody really knows the ideal weight for the '05 yet but with the '03 1330g put you in the ball park.

A note of interest the M05 with the fastest track record (3rd overall) at Eastbourne is in short wheel base with no extra weight. However recently it's been no faster than my heavy medium wheel base.

So is it all in the mind and doesn't actually make a difference :)
