Yep that's it, my freind is a tool and die guy.
He's making me and another friend (patelladragger)
the spools. Patella put them on ebay for him.
I just got off the phone with the tool and die guy
(Mike) he said that he would sell the first few for
$15 if some one wanted one.

He engraved my screen name quite nicely on the bottom.
I drilled all the holes, that's why there off a little.
He milled the center down for weight and also I can
put the lead their to get back up to legal limit.
The chassis came out at 118g's.

Drift,

Nice the name-thing.
But what I can't understand why you prefer higher placed weight
(additional lead, to the lowest place the weight can be : your chassis?!

I got as light as I could so I could put the weight were I want to.
I use 4 postage scales to scale it out and then what's left I put
in the middle thinking it will help the weight transfer.

Also where I race we do not have a weight limit in mod.

Where do you put your extra weight Pizza?

Placing the weight in the center section of your chassis..wouldn't that increase the center of gravity? Isn't it better to place the weights on the lowest part of the chassis..on the chassis itself?
on mine it's on the same location as yours but I have the IRS graphite chassis. I also weight the battery, motor and electronics.
the battery is usually the heaviest and I add more weight on the electronic side to have equall weight on both sides...
