I weighed mine all up this weekend and am sitting at 704grams. I made sure to tare and 0 out the scale, but after a few tries I kept getting the same results.
Where would or where do most of you add weight? The car was dialed and on rails, so I'll have to mess around with weight placement to keep the same feel I hope.
I use 2mm thick lead strip and add it under the LiPo in the slots where the round cells used to go. This works out at about 12g per strip to fill a slot. My car is about 705g, so I use two strips in the middle slots. To account for tyre wear and any variation in tyre sizes, I add a 7g weight in the gap between the aerial mount and the front of the LiPo. All up, the car varies from 735 to 740g.
Putting the weights under the LiPo keeps the weight low and in the middle of the car, and the rest of the chassis clear. Attach the lead strips to the LiPo using thin double-sided carpet tape and it's good to go! HTH
