    SCX10 Center of Gravity

    I need to know where the center of gravity is on a SCX10 G6 or the like. Not the center of gravity hieght wise, but from front to back. Like how far from the front bumper back can you balance the vehicle evenly over a point. It doesn't have to be exact, just roughly within an inch of the actual center of gravity. Side to side center of gravity isn't very important for the project, just front to back. You see, I will soon be getting an SCX10 G6 and I need the COG for a project concerning it. I couldn't find anything on the web. If you know of somewhere that it is listed, please share. Also, if you measure the COG using a stock SCX10, that would be great. It doesn't have to be a G6, just an old stock SCX10.

    Thanks,
    Nate
    If it works, take it apart and find out why.

    That can vary big time on what you have installed, and batteries so I doubt there would be anyone that has that info.
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    Hey phmaximus. Sorry I missed your replies. I got my answers in a thread I made in the rock crawler section. You see, I don't have an SCX10, so I can't measure it myself. (The reason for this thread) I am building an RC trailer, and needed the specs to figure tounge weight. I'm eventully going to purchase a SCX10 and that's what I plan to haul. I'm adjusting my tounge weight by locating the trailer leaf springs between the SCX10 COG and the trailer's COG. Mostly toward the SCX10 COG because it weighs more and will have more of an effect on the tounge weigh. That's why I needed the specs. Since I don't own an SCX10. I can't measure to where the Axial label is on the frame... Thanks for offering your help though. I'm currently set though, as I said, I got my info from here: SCX10 Center Gravity
