Default Running lightweight lipo's?

Anyone else running these? I'm running the zippy 4000's. Compared to other batteries there like a featherweight. I'm running them in a B4 and SC10. My setups are supersoft already but I'm thinking of adding weight to offset the batteries. thoughts.

All lipo are lighter than nimh so I am guessing that is what you mean. Also yes people have been known to add weights to compensate for the weight difference.

Not just Nimh. I've compared my lipo's to others and there not even close. Does anybody make the lead plates that go under a lipo?

I made a couple at work, take a pcs. of of either 16 or 20 ga.(cant remember) stainless steel, cut to size of battery tray. You have to cut a 1" slot out of bottom pc for your esc wire and for weight, exactly 4 grams, have to double check when i get home..
