Never tried any weight at all, truck is nicely balanced as it sits. But I runn a full servo and a big esc up front. Truck is awesome!

I built mine from the start with that brass weight, so I don't really have anything to compare it to, and mine still jumps nose down. I have plenty of steering in and out of the corners, and plenty of forward bite, from a dead stop I can nail it and it goes nice and straight. if I could get it balanced enough so that it would jump flat so that I would not have to do so much in the air to control it, it would be perfect for me, but like I said before only raced it one time, so I know I can tweak the setup more.

Take a look at your drag brake setting. If it is too high it can cause a nose down situation.

Change your front springs if its nosing over the jumps to something stiffer. Did wonders for my truck on jumping. Changed to grey fronts..

If your slapping the rear end on the jump face can do this also.
Just an idea.

I use these: http://www.amainhobbies.com/rc-cars-...336000/p249846
You get 6 for the same price that others sell 4 for.

They are a standard metric 4mm. Last week I had one set where one axle was fine and the other had threads that were not quite cut to the end. Associated was good about sending out a replacement.
