As you had a non engine package from us we could not set the trailer for you.
The axle can be moved to adjust the nose weight,however this is done by our factory trained engineers and we would suggest you seek advice from a NTTA registered trailer engineer as moving the axle involves re setting up the brake cable which if done badly could be dangerous for you and 3rd party!!
Dixon Bate have a technical engineer and don't be afraid to call upon his help if required.
This wasn't an attack - just an observation. From various comments from RC owners (both on this forum and in person), it does seem the nose weight is generally high on RC / Dixon Bate trailer combinations. Fuel loading is probably the influencing factor on this and as I have discovered, even an anchor has an almost 100% effect weight effect on the nose weight. As this is an open forum intended to help other RIBsters, other RC customers with similar rigs have replied which is helpful. I have neither complained the trailer was not balanced nor asked you to balance it. I'm perfectly happy doing this and have done so based on my individual setup. I simply expressed my surprise at the nose weight when I got the boat and expect it was well over 120KG (took 2 to lift the nose). Most cars have nose weight limit of 75KG
The brakes have been setup correctly (I just spoke to Dixon Bate to verify this). Bowden cable is set such that there is no "knock" on the car when braking. Brakes come on smoothly and progressively. With handbrake applied, lever is roughly vertical.
