Default Adding Weight to Chassis

DOes anyone know where to find chassis weights that are pre-shaped to fit inside the battery slots of a graphite chassis? I am using a flat sided Lipo battery and I want to add weight in the 6 battery slots of my chassis, so the weights are flush with the bottom of the chassis. Basically I want 6 weights to fill the 6 battery holes.

I would strongly suggest that if you get these you need to shoo goo them to your battery.

thanks guys .... so your saying the stick-um that comes on the weights is not too strong??

What i really want to do is make a jig out of steel ..... take a 2.5 mil thick piece of steel and cut a hole in it exactly the same size as one of the battery slots in my chassis .... then put in a lead chassis weight ... and with a mallet, beat the lead into the steel mold, shaping it to the exact size of my batt slots in my chassis .... It sure sounds like it would work ....

Im not saying to do this but you wouldnt do any damage to the chassis if you just put a plate over the top clamp it down the pour molten lead into the slots I used to fill up the front of my B3 off road thats plastic it never melted it. But remember that safety comes first

If your going to use the lead thing, NEVER use water with lead, research all about lead safety before doing anything with lead
