I bought the lead weights that they sell for airplanes. At least thats where they had them at my hobby store. They were only like $4 a pack.
Thats about the only thing I dont like about my lipo...its too light...they pitch it as its a good thing but it really isnt. It would have been better had they made it closer to weight of a "normal" nimh pack. The other benefits still outweigh the weight factor. I suppose this may be somethign good for the new Losi but it might still be too light.

I thought of this idea even simulated it but your'e right it was ugly and it was a whole lot of lead. I think the Xray balancing weights for the rear are 5 oz of brass in a very small size so at least they would look better.

Thanks for the replys...

The kit setup is a very nice starting point for carpet....from there you can make minor adjustments for it to suit your track and driving style if required

too true... the US foam car i have been running had an excellent starting point, and i ran my EU rubber car 1st time last night, didnt really get any practice with it before quals. ran as fast on my best lap as i have with my previous car on my 2nd pack through.

the only adjustments i made were minor droop changes from the stock setup.

Matt, this setup is also worth trying, but it uses not-included springs on the rear and not-included C-hubs.

That setup is awsome on med bite carpet and if your running on a lower bite run 2deg of rear toe and possibly lay the rear shocks down 1 hole. Its dialed.

Kave, yeah, I agree. I'm running that setup exactly (except tire diameter), and this weekend I was having problems with the back end stepping out on the entry to a high speed sweeper. I moved the rear shock upper mount in one hole, and that completely eliminated that problem. The other effect was that the back end was very planted on the lower speed corners, which demands more effort to rotate the car around hairpins.

Hi,

I've had very good resukts with the kit setup for foams on my first 007. my 2nd 007 has been sidelined due to bad bearings (hub bearings) right in the kit. but I hope to have it up and running soon. right know one is right on the fastest stock pace at our local track(s) running a GTB/13.5 setup. my other one will be a brushed stock/19t car.

ChrisP.

you were right. I love the car, so does my other driver(s). the way it's going I'll end up with three of them soon!!!!
I have to work this weekend but I'll call you before I head to CEFX the next time I go. I've seen Jeff B and Aaron there a few times.

Thanks

They've mentioned seeing you there Tim! When I heard I was disappointed that I wasn't able to make the trip...

I'm glad that you're enjoying the car.

Hope to see you soon!
Chris

ChrissP:

Hi,

it was the first weekend I was able to be out of the house since I had gotten sick again. so far everything is looking good, I'm back to work, racing again, and wrenching again!!!!. I'm hoping to make it down to CEFX in two weeks as I should have that weekend off work.

Mackin:

Hi,

We had planned on going to Cleveland but I ended up getting sick again. I wasn't able to do much of anything. I finally started feeling better about the second week of December. We're hoping I will be better for next years race. Mini'no longer a Mini...18 and showing it. not doing to much racing as he has other things to take up his time. I'm hoping to get him back to the track soon tho.

Thanks
