I had to add 3 quarters at a recent ROAR carpet regional.
It was like tenths of an ounce can't remember exactly.

Figured it would be quite a bit of weight. Where did you put it?

If you mesh is too tight - the car will be noisy as well.

You may want to grease-up the thrust bearings as well while you're at it ... after I re-greased my diffs I did also notice a slight decrease in noise from the car.

Good luck - I hope you find the source of the noise.

Isn't the servo side on a FK05 heavier or are you running 3700 packs? Am I reading this wrong

Just curious cause when I added weight I added more on the battery-side then I did on the electronics side to try to balance the car out (I run 3300 packs).

You must be Canadian ... eh

Actually, after I re-lubed the diff, the car is as quiet as the FK04 was.

I am thinking about putting a screw in the bumber top plate and screwing 20g of chassis weights into it upside down so they sit inside a hole cut out in the bumber, and 10g on each side in the rear just to get some weight on the car. How does that sound?

I had to add weight to make the limit to my car. I added 1/2 oz at the rear on each side just in front of rear wheels where chassis widens. 1.25 oz along centerline or as close as i could get it, and if you remove the bumper top plate u can stick 1/2oz on the chassis then remount the top plate.

I used stick on weights in 1/2, and 1/4oz sizes
