I wouldn't add any unless a min weight rule is enforced and even that you may not be under weight.

I would add 1-2 ounces of weight personally. I placed mine in between my two trakpower lipos, right below the rear center drive shaft. My car seems pretty dialed to me. Let us know what you do and how you like it.

My experience has been that the higher grip the surface is, the less weight that had to be added. The looser the surface, the more weight that needs to be added. So the amount will depend on your track conditions.

When adding the weight try and keep the weight as low as possible and as close to the battery tray area as possible to simulate the conditions that the car designer intended.
