Trouble with Weights

Took the SCX10 up Roznik today which illustrated a couple of problems with the added weights .

If you look at the tires in comparison to when they were not weighted , they look puffed up, thats because the stick on weights increase the diameter of the wheel and that makes the foam bunched up and of centered , it also makes the wheels out of balance , especially the heavier fronts . The fronts also become much much stiffer and loose grip and climbing ability because of this.

Also i’ve experienced a lot of nose overs flips when going down hill , which i presume is exaggerated because of the lack deformation issue . So the weights are coming of and a different solution is in the mail, it should have arrived today .

Those black painted axial 1.9 beadlocks and gear head RC rings sure look nice don’t they ! much better than the stock ones.

oh, one more thing, i’ve changed to the smallest body clips i could find because i kept loosing the big ones , these seem to stay put better , even after about 30-40 rollovers today.

I have a little over a week to fix those issues before the trucks come with me to the seaside .
