Okay so for the report on how it worked.

 I Won!

 Reaction times came back and it worked quite well. Won a few rounds on the tree. Even handled better on top end. Before it just did not want to steer on the top end, I would be cranking wheel over and it kept going where it wanted to. Never had to abort a run but I was having to work it. Now it works better. I believe what was happening was the front end was so light under full power the front tires were scrubbing and not working good.
Maybe you can replace some of the front end weight with a front canard wing that will keep the front glued down and reduce weight also.
I cannot read replies either.

Well my motor is set back pretty far so it needs some weight on the front. It works good now and has Won a lot of races. Thing is on these when you change one thing it may mess up something else........ Sometimes feel like a dog chasing his tail. Part of the challenge is making them work.
