Default Adding weight to B4

Where is the best place to add weight to the B4? How do you but it on the chassis?

Directly infront of the transmission, on the t-plate (1/2oz - 1oz). Some guys are adding another 1/2oz total on either side of the chassis in the triangle recesses.

Also try moving the battery more to the front of the chassis. Also the electronics as well.

Where you place the weight should depend on your driving style. The half ounce in front of the trans is a good move. Then if you want your car to be more forgiving then place weights wide on the chasis. If you want it more responsive then you place ne weights needed to reach limit in the battery trey. Something else you can do on tight low hp tracks is replace 2 cells w/ flat lead weights.

Here is a perfect picture of where it should go. AE sells the weights.

this mod is great it made my buggy hook up tons and it made me be able to get on the gas harder and not spin out. I have 1oz in front the trans and 1/4oz on both sides of the car.

Most tire shops will also have stick on weights, you can probably get a ton of them for next to nothing.
