TITANIUM

Also a guaranteed way to lose 15 grams is to run a Futaba 9550 low profile servo.

Yeah TITANIUM

Expensive but very strong and light, just got the complete screw kit for the car and it definetly helped. Right now I am just under the weight for the stock class which is where I wanted to be. I came in ready to race, I am assuming that is how they weigh the car, at 1430 grams w/ 3700's. I need to add about 15 grams to make weight. FINALLY. For 19T I could still lose a bit but not enough for me to worry about. Thanks for all the help out there.

If you have to add static weight...make it work for you....ADD a fan or two, if you use a shaft car use a Ride air duct to direct air to the motor...

Another great item to add static weight would be Ferrite coils...
They help eliminate radio noice from your car...which translates to glitching...
They come in two styles...Wrap aroud clip on and just rings...
The clip on ones go on your negative wires of motor and batt...
THe rings are just that...You wrap your wires around them or bundle up your wires and slide a ring ferrite on the bundle...
But if you are still under add weight to balance the car as well, front to back and right to left...

Try running the Reedy clip on heatsink/fan. Then get a Rid air scoop. Ferite coils if your still underweight.

Don't put titanium screws on the underside of your chassis. Just on the top, low stress parts. They have been known to fail in the event of a crash.

ChadCapece- What car do you have?

I have an X-ray FK-05. Right now I am at 1431 grams. I have a pic attatched.

Just about 14 grams under. I will try and add a fan now. Thanks.
