I am going to try the nexus weights. Do you guys have suggestions for a more dense weight to balance the car out?
I've seen some drivers use velcro on the bottom of the battery - as well as on the chassis and then taping the battery in. Might be an option to try before having the drill holes, etc.

That is a great idea...you got a pic by chance???
