Take those out. The AE weight is taller in height but smaller in width and length. More of those will fit in the tray than the automotive weights you have in there now.

Another good place is in the bumper. I have about 20g in mine.

Just take a new blade and carve out enough foam to slide the weight in. Do this at the back side of the bumper of course.

I dont like adding weight all the way up in the bumper, it will make the car feel lazy. IMO

AE weights are lead weight from Associated Electrics. This should be available at your local hobby store. If they cant't get it for you, I would suggest one of the many reputable online retailers. The AE part number is ASC1595.

True, if you get to much. However my car is actually about 9g heavier in the rear than the front. That's about as close to a 50/50 distribution as one could ask for, or at least close enough for toy cars.

The weight needs to be in between the wheels.

Hello Racers, Here is a couple of pics. My son Austin Harrison is a Team Driver here in Florida. We are headed to South Fl, for a 13.5 Invitational Shootout Saturday. The best drivers in the state will be there. Plans are to put the Photon in the #1 spot. Thanks Ron H,

Default spool issues

Is there is an alternative to running the composite spool? (tried searching in the thread but doesn't work well)
Took my time building placing the cups in..and had issues all day today with the spools....ver 2 and original.
to say the least I ran out of parts.
so, Not sure if anyone is interested but up for sale



TOP PHOTON - RUBBER SPEC USED 4 PACKS

Wow selling just because you had issues with the spool??? I think a quick call to TOP on any business day would have gotten you sorted out nicely!
