Not sure if anyone makes them, but all you need is a turquoise sharpee and you can make your own. I always keep a couple in my tool box just in case something needs a last minute "anodizing" lol.

Don't forget the clear blue Tamiya plastic model paint! For the non trackside bling treatments.

I don't know about blue, but I sent a link to Mimi for 5g and 10g black wheel weights. They can only be bought in bulk though.

Could you share that link with me. If it's not Tamiya blue, it better be stealth

i use regular wheel weights and painted it black. looks cool but the paint strips off when scratched, no big deal, just repaint it when it's too ugly

Hi Guys,
So what is the consensus on the best LiPo tray for the 416WE? Iím going to stick with Thunder Power batteries, so I have some decent clearance to the top deck. Whatís the deal with those trays that move the battery outward? I noticed the Tamiya guys donít hang their batteries off the side. I like the look of the PPD tray, but is it enough weight?

I guess anything is better than what I'm doing now; not running any weights or balancing my car!
