Question? The brass battery holder is heavier and will lower the cg of the car but will not add strain on the drive train as the car will be heavier than before. Also Are there parts that you can lighten on the car to creat some balance by adding this weight.

It's an "R". It comes with hop-ups. You don't need any more.

Go to www.ybslowinc.com

You can get the aluminum front spool as well as lighter transmission shafts. Titanium screws. Light 2 speed adapters. I don't remember if the R comes with titanium pillow balls, but there is some weight. There are lots of ways to lighten the car.
