RC10B4 + Novak Brushless = Question

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I've decided to experiment with Brushless in my RC10B4.

I've started out with a Novak Brushless, and I am wondering about the weights that I had added in to my B4 previous to this upgrade.

Do I still need to retain the weights in the back (under the shock mount tower), or is the additional weight of the motor enough?

Has anyone had any experience balancing the weight using this combination?

IMO the weight should be left in.

I read in RC car action Magazine that the weights that are added are crucial to getting bite out of the corners. I would definately leave them in. I really don't think the weight of the Novak Brushless System would be significantly different than what you are currently running.

The motor is not that much heavier. I weighed them all and it was very close. Leave the weight in.
