I've been adding zero weight. Also running on Astroturf mainly. My rear end is planted. It's all about the setup.

You guys should have seen my mid motor cougar on dirt . Its not all about the setup. Try it you won't hate it (on dirt). Takes away none of the TC handling but still can drive it like an ebuggy if you need to (super aggressive on brakes in turns and jumps). Without rear weights thing was nose heavy.

It's just another tuneing option and at my local astro track the weights are a god send in the wet and help lock in the rear end

Yeah I just cannot afford super soft holeshots every heat or two at my track. So make do with the soft compounds, grip sauce and weight at big races I can understand 1 heat tires for max grip but its too much for club race nights.

I get my brass from the local ace hardware. They sell 0.091 sheets and thinner there around 4 inches accross and 6 to 10 long for about 10 bucks.

I just put about 45 grams under my batteries so we will see what happens. I'm also switching to the avid pistons and 3 2 in the diffs

I was getting fed up with losing body clips when swapping packs, so I've converted over to thumb nuts



I just used M3 x 33mm button heads locked down with a washer and lock nut, the thumb nuts are from Tresrey and are ment for the DEX210
