    hey guys, new to the forum here. ive look through 70-some pages on the forum. I see 2 ounces behind and in front of the rear axle. but I need to add a little more weight to reach 5 ounces or 141.75 grams. Where does the extra weight need to go or do I leave it alone? For BSA raceing, ladder body with 1/64 birch top with dd4h nitro wheels and dd4h 93tx axles. thanks in advance

    Just put the extra in front of the cubes towards the DFW side. If you are rail riding. For Scout level racing that should be fine.
