Default How to add weight with a 3200 carbon li-po ?

Hi guys,

I've just bought a Team Orion Carbon 3200 Li-po battery. Great runs to come with my Mamba Max 7700 combo... well I guess.

Here is my question : any idea to make housemade weights to balance the car ?

Thanks for your answers.

Cheers.

Like every thing else in this hobby. Dig deep into the pocket, quarters, dimes and nickels.
Shoe goo it or servo tape it.

I run 2mm above zero in the front and 2.5mm above zero in the rear. With 2 degree toe in the rear. And zero toe in the front. I also found to get better off power steering with brushless the one way works good up to the 4300, any faster I like the diff.
Cyan, Magenta's. I start at 58mm and run 4.5 ride height.
Standard top deck and the 2.5 chassis.

got the 2.5mm in the rear, 2mm in the front, 2-deg rear toe, zero in the front....but i got the 3mm chassis and the wide top deck...lol also i have been running double-pink orange, and double pinks, i have been looking at the new parma cyans and magentas tho...ill use my pinks this summer tho lol

anyone know someone starting out that needs a cheap durable tc? trying to sell my irs tc3...$125 as a roller, $140 with a bunch of parts, and 2 sets of tires. would make a good first touring car for someone, as everyone has some setup knowledge of the tc3 lol and you can get parts for a tc3 for next to nothing, and even some tc4 parts fit (was thinking about adding the carbon fiber tc4 ft towers too it....

t4 is such a nice vehicle, i wouldn't mind trading a pretty good tc (my tc3) for a ft b4 (or atleast one that has threaded shocks, titanium turnbuckles, some aluminum and some tires/parts) since i have an extra set of electrics (since tc is alittle slow in the summer heh

i just want to add Associated FT B4 to my signature then ill need to get another gt7 esc (have had such great luck with the gt7s), z590 servo (been good to me in offroad, z8800s in tc tho), and another spektrum receiver for my dx3 lol good thing the dx3 can hold 3 models, cause thats ill ill need, 2wd buggy, 2wd truck, 4wd tc not really a big fan of 4wd offroad as of late...

with the "new esc" it happens to still be a gt7 too



from the side you can see my custom antenna mount (using an old tc3 rear body post - same one i used for a transponder mount in my tc3) mounted to the servo again hah



still kept the battery wires long enough, for if i end up with a b4 for the offroad season, ill just need to splice in some wire for the motor wires

I've just fitted a Carbon 3200 in the '05. To make my clubs min. weight for Stock Rubber I need +170gr (6 oz for you guys).

Great Planes make lead weights (GPMQ4485). You need them 2 packs (about 28-29 pieces). They look butt ugly - so I'm think to wrap my mountains of lead in shrink wrap and cover that with Carbon Fiber sticker sheets.

I thinks thats what Nexus Racing did in their T2'007 mod article to fit a 4800 Platinum and it looked pretty good.

Default FK05

Any of you who are still running the 05 (I am still running it too) want or need another roller? Or does is any one interested on an FK05? I have 3 of them and need to get money for an 007 conversion. Car is still very good. I dominated the NWIC this year in Stock Rubber with this car. Had a setup that I was able to run at all 4 of the races plus Regionals with very minor changes. I would compare it to the Numan Setup for the JRX-S. I have even ran it on ashpalt with similar sucess. Open to offer. Looking for $140 a car but will entertain offers. Have parts too. Pm if interested and will let you know what I have. Or if you are looking for something PM me.
