Default 7075it Brass weights

Just wanted to start a thread and get some feedback on what products everyone would like to possibly see from 7075it to add weight in all the right places on their cars. They already have the Xray T4 line and working on Infinity IF4 line plus some stuff for Awesomatix.

Tungston would be very nice. Very heavy for its mass. Can be purchased in rod form from welding supply stores. Quite pricey but really effective.

Not asking about Tungsten. 7075it already makes a lot of items for Xray and Infinity cars from Brass. Just looking to see if there is anything anyone would like to see in brass from them.

How about the bumper standoffs on the T4'17. The pieces that connect the lower and upper bumper.

A800 bits would help, I already have to run a heavy (310 gram) pack and 60 - 70 grams of ballast to meet legal weight thats running the vertical top deck, if I ran a std top deck it's 80-90 needed, usually come in around 1355-1360 now that's balanced.

Already available as Tryhard posted. I have those.

Nexus Where would you want to add the weight? Do you have to add most of it to the motor side with that weight of battery? Perhaps a brass plate that goes under the electronics? Or the center brace in brass?

At the moment with the shift to LCG batteries, I am usually having to add weight to the battery side.

On my AMX, I needed to add weight to the front right of the battery and the motor side. TSR motors are light as well as anywhere else I could stuff it. That whole front right area is light. (non-servo side)
