How much weight do you think you would have to put on the front of the Enduro to make it Goat Worthy?

Definitely waiting for that SSD black coated brass - just not a fan of the shiny stuff at all!

(Even if it is well made...)

Me neither. Plus the price is bound to be a bit better as well.

I just noticed a funny bit of editing needed on their part description for the knuckles:

"These are a direct fit to almost any Element c-hub..."

Almost any?

Hmmm...

I just went down in battery size from 5200mah 3s to a Lihv 1800 to improve COG. Im hoping that adding 100g ~ to the front low will make this truck unstoppable.

I will add one more cheap front and rear bumper option. The Axial SCX10 II 1969 Chevrolet Blazer set fits fine.
Front bumper: Axial Racing - Chassis Unlimited K5 Front Bumper
Rear bumper: Axial Racing - Chassis Unlimited K5 Rear Bumper

I do not have a photo of it, but you can see them on my Enduro Sendero in my video:

Where exactly will you add the 100 grams?

Ideally youíll add weight to the axle, and in the corners, while keeping it non-rotating.

Fifty + degrees of turning clearance.

Right. And on that note, beef tubes has just released a bunch of brass for the truck. I ordered the knuckles, which will give you 88g of weight right there. Add the shock mounts at 22g and you'll get your 100g of weight down low on the front axle. Since I'm planning to run a set of Chyrax beadlocks, I figured the added weight from the wheels combined with the knuckles would be a good starting point on my rig.

And beef tubes has a brass filled axle upcoming, like Ernie made. Not sure of the weight, but along with a brass diff cover, weight can be kept inboard, so no need for knuckles or chubs

As long as the brass is hidden or black coated, I'm more apt to purchase it... "thumbsup"

Agreed. What Dan said was that they chose brass as it paints well. I prefer Blacken It.(model rr finish) what I saw of the tube design, only the ends will show, and the chubs will cover, no need for the diff cover. Good self etching primer, header paint baked on will also work, with little or no Rock chipping

Isn't the weight more useful if it's out closer to the wheels?
