appears to add weight to get more bite. never seen it at the hub though. maybe thats better then having it on the chassis.
how much weight do those add?

unsprung weight like that will soften the response of the suspension arm. Never tried it in 1/10 and not sure you'd need it.

Like Randy said, it will soften the response of the suspension and will make the overall chassis feel heavier while driving. Might be good on carpet, but real off road dirt I would be skeptical.

Nice craftsmanship tho.

I know several that have added the weight to the end of the rear arms. they like it for dirt tracks. i never tried it though. and that appars to be a mid motor.

Hi, we use it on carpet track.
We have a permanent track, we use weight only on rear, the car is better on fast corners.
Weights are made in Italy
