I used Tamiya part #53470 the carbon fiber look and there is also #53371 that is clear and can be painted. I cut mine on the lines and it was under the 10mm rule.

How about the HPI GT wings? Even if they are under 10mm, they look like they have a huge chord.

That 10mm rule is for lexan spoilers only. You can mount any of the big ass molded plastic spoilers.

What are you guys using for weight? 1450 grams is pretty heavy for modern touring cars.

I believe the point of the weight rule is to allow some parity to exist with the older cars, to create an equalizer of sorts. Stick on weights (used for tire balancing) are cheap and common. You can get some better looking stick-on weights from most hobby shops. Hth or is the answer you are looking for.

What Dizope is saying that is adding 100grams of weight or more on a modern car? That is 10 or more 10 gram wieght's it is hard to find the space for that many weights in a modern car the deck on my 417 is full of electronics batteries etc. The belt runs down the center and the space for weight there is limited.

I use Tungsten weights that are used for Pine Car Derby cars. Tungsten is approx. 1.6 times heavier than lead. More weight in a smaller footprint. I think I had to add 170gms to my T4 clone to make 1450gms.

Exactly, thanks for clarifying "Vivo".

SORRY. No pics, I put as much weight in the middle of the chassis, under the belt. I then used the rest on the corners of the chassis, to adjust the static balance. I think I got to within about 3gms side to side.

Got it, thanks. I'd like to see the tungsten weights you are referring to. One of the cars I run is a Top Photon and it comes with a tray that acts as a lipo holder. The tray is perfect for adding lead weights, that's what it is designed for basically. You could probably add it to any car with just a bit of drilling. I had a spec-r I ran in VTA before the photon and it was a challenge for sure, I resorted to sticking weights to the pack itself, on the front bumper, wherever... I'll look up the weights you are talking about if they are a lot heavier for the size.

Hmmm... the putty looks interesting. You could get creative with how you applied it, make it fit some tight spaces.

I've seen a tungsten bar somewhere. Bolts down right in the centerline of the car.
