Default Question about weight distribution

Finally finished my T-rex (or is it T-wrecks?) project everything works the only problem is that it is front heavy. The only thing I can think of is moving tail servo back or adding extraneous weight to rear. Any other suggestions would be welcomed.

what size battery do you have on it? it looks pretty big and may be why it's front heavy. maybe you could put the receiver up on the battery tray and move the battery underneath the motor?

Yes, your main options are lighter battery, and/or move the tail servo back.

Another option only if you want to shell out the extra dough is to convert the tail box to aluminum if you haven't already done so to add a little extra weight and at the same time increase performnce a tad. My two cents.
