Weights

Today a surprisingly heavy envelope arrived in the mail . Its a set of weights from Martin at RCBITZ.com. Martin probably has the best selection of crawling related stuff this side of the Atlantic, check him out !

Since my scx10 is a bit top heavy i needed to weight it down so i bough these:

SCALE CRAWLER Stick on Wheel Weights COMPLETE SET SCX10

20130516-weights1

480grams of extra weight

 

Its a set 165 gram for each front wheel and 75g for the rears . They came nicely taped up and with two sided tape already attached for easy installation.

Installation is a breeze , just slide them on and thats it . They fit perfectly to my freshly painted axial beadlocks.  I mocked them up then installed them per the manual , remove the two sided tape cover and stick them on. For the fronts, do the smaller rings first then bigger ones. When you tape them on they contour really nicely to the wheels.

Thats it, now to fit tires back on.
