What do you guys use to add weight to your car, and where do you put it??? I heard the rule is 53oz, and I'm 49oz, without transponder. lol... gotta get up there.

JeffC,

I've used just about anything...From a fifty cent piece to 2 tripple A batteries! But I finally got me some Lead weights! I usually put it on the side of the batteries. I'm not sure if thats the "correct" place to put them for weight ballance, but at a race that was the quickest place to get to!

I think I'll just look around for some lead weights, and try them in different places. There's not much room on the side of the batteries (SP chassis), but I'm thinking either straight across from the motor, or between the motor and ESC... probably both. Might balance out pretty good that way.

I have some nice AE ones that work well. Our LHS owner has four digital scales, so I'll just use those to balance it out

JeffC have your hobby shop order some RaceTech lead(I dont know the proper name of it). It comes in 4 oz(I think) little squares. Then just cut them up and zoo goo them in the middle of the chassis next time you have the top plate off. Then you dont have to worry about ballancing it out because all the weight is close to center line.

I use stick on, lead weights(used for balancing tyres on your real car)
They are flat enough to stick to the lower part of the bumper mount(under the foam bumper). This also increases the weight over the front wheels which improves steering.
I believe it is also done on 2wd off roaders....

Any recommendation for my MVP brushes, should I go full face or with the vertical slot?

Default Silver Brushes!

Hi Guys,

I would like to know if any of you guys did try silver brushes which give 2 or 3 runs only during testing or races.

Are they effective with STOCK motors?
Do they really increase acceleration and top speed?
What spring will you advise to use and why?

Good luck guys, I posted some questions a page or two back and haven't gotten a answer yet, I feel like I'm interupting a conversation just by asking.

BEARINGS:

You can order from www.rcboyz.com or www.acerracing.com or call up Yokomo USA who also makes teflon sealed bearings. Good luck.

Interceptor try reposting your question.. Also just because your question wasnt answered doesnt mean that they dont like you. Maybe they just dont know the answer to it.

rcboyz is good. Boca is nice, but pricey.

All stock motor brushes are silver. Using silver in a mod would eat the comm fast, almost everybody uses copper, and you HAVE to in low turn mods.

Simon-a 767 will work in any stock motor. the 767 is full face serated. You may want to pick up some slotted ones too, and try some 766's, alot of people have been having success with them in MVPs, I think they are a kind of timed brush.
