    I have purchased tungsten cubes from different suppliers and am finding that they have different weights per cube. Not much, but not much times 12 behind the rear axle....?
    Probably means nothing to us Scout Car guys, but the .0001 second guys, it could matter perhaps.

    I sort them and place in bags by weight. It is just part of my CDO ( my OCD ....in alphabetical order) :eek:

    12 cubes weighs between 1.96 to 2.04 depending on the grade, but you wont find a speed difference..the speed is in the drills and the wheels
