Hey Billy, are you talking about this ones? yes they are only 6.5 grams for the pair! and the quality of the machining is Top Notch, it's designed to last!

Hi Team Kamikaze, Do you have the brass battery trays for the MRX5 in stock and if so how much are they.
Thanks Andrew

Hey Andrew,
Brass Battery tray is not advisable as it affects the flex of the chassis (that is the reason why Mugen did not make one), if you want to add weight I suggest using only the ORIGINAL Mugen add on weights, like the H02404, H02405, H02407 and H02409, this are very HIGH Quality machined products from Mugen.

yes Sam, those are the nice ones. I milled my steel stock ones out and took off 15 grams, but the alum you have to go with, there sweet. Billy

I have just bought the Mugen original weights last night.

I was wondering what effect the weights will have on the car when added?

Do you guys add all the weights? and what is a good starting combination of weights to add?

Thanks

Just consider the weights as a tuning option, adding weights to different part of the car will obviously change the overall weight distribution and will also affect the handling characteristic of the car, the best way to find out is to install the weights in different section and drive the car to feel what difference it did make, also compare actual lap times as sometimes it might feel the same but will have a big difference in lap times. Hope this helps, somebody might explain it better than me, and hopefully he chimes in.

I think that explains it. I looked at the areas where the weights can placed too.
The weights besides affect the balance of the car, may also affect the overall flex too.

The weight that mounts under the front one way is most likely the weight you will want to really test for driving difference.I remember on my mrx4 I had the zac chassis with the front brace in carbon fiber and it did create a push. IMO the 5 may not experince the same problem due to the floatng upper deck but keep an eye on this weight Good luck

thanks for all the comments. Will give it a try this weekend. and let you know the outcome.

I do not use the floating upper deck as my local track has fiarly high traction.
