    Question, I have the gmade kamodo Gs01 . with some lite modification i can move the battery tray to the front and the receiver box to the back, this will move a considerable amount of the weight to the front, but in turn raise the CG due to the servo being axle mounted. what would you do? Thanks.

    For sure, move it to the front, its a trade off but cg shouldnt be affected too much.

    That'll work great. I'm generally against putting weights in rims, but in this case, if you're running beadlock rims, get some stick-on tire weights, and put about an ounce, to an ounce and a half in each wheel. Not enough to really add too much rotating mass to your wheels, but the two to three ounces you put down low does help somewhat with that CG issue. It will make a difference...
