Default Weight

Was wandering if anybody runs weight in the nose of their dr10 and if so how did you attach it to the chassis

could a mod just move the topic?

Anyway...

I see a lot more aero bits on Dr10s than I do weight. It's already a bit hefty of a car compared to the carbon fiber chassis the top dogs are running. I've run weights on the front bumper of my slash and AE cars, but I'm going to get away from that and try a front splitter. No results to speak of yet.

Aero won't help at the start of the run, which is when it's most likely to pop a wheelie.

This is true, but if you're popping a wheelie, your wheelie bar isnt set right. Or you're running 13.5, not allowed a wheelie bar, and wtf gearing are you running? And if it's still an issue, you need to drop the chassis. A little rake is good, but a low chassis that's parallel to the ground is physically harder to cause to wheelie than one that rides high.

That said, weight isnt all bad. Anything from stick-on weights from an auto parts store or the rc plane section at your LHS to the fancy machined brass parts. I know there are brass option parts for the DR10 now, like the servo mount, bulkhead, and others.
