Arrow wheel weights

Hi I just got a new losi night crawler yesterday and took it for a spin today. I had figured out I needed to get some wheel weights put inside the tires. Should I put them next to each other or spread them out and if so how would I spread them out.

easiest way to add weights is by taping or sticking them directly to the outer diameter of the wheels. placing them directly next to each other if fine.

I normally use stick-on wheel weights that tire shops use to balance tires. It has an adhesive backing on them that is easy to use!

What I used was 1/8 fish weights. I spaced them evenly around the wheel. Today was my first comp and it did great. The fishing weights are alot cheaper and you get a lot more for your money.
