Default adding weight

If my car is under weight where is the best place to add weight

Front bumper? or bottom of the middle of the car? and what does each do?

Thanks

think of it this way. Adding weight = adding traction. if your car handles good then put an equal balance front to back so the handling remains similar.

Adding weight does not always add traction.

i always put it in the center because i always balance my car when i set it up so you dont want to unbalance your setup so if you can keep it low and in the center its best
