  1. If you using weight shifting to switch. I feel the horizontal battery position helps create more of a roll in the chassis, and helps aid in the transfer of weight.

    1. Yes you are correct, the lateral battery position will be capable of greater chassis roll, especially for weight transfer.  Horizontal positioning can help better optimize weight/grip capabilities so there is a plus/minus benefits there.  Just wondering how everyone else feels about it, thanks for commenting 🙂
