Exclamation Added weight

Hello everyone I am new to RCing but I have made a few improvements to my RS10 XT. I made a jumper and added two batteries 7.2 3000mha loaded them toward the front axle. This has given me more play time as well as added traction. I also bought wheel weights for mag wheels from a tire store. I added 3 oz to front and rear now. I also have Rock Claws by Losi on the front axle waiting for the other two to come in. I cut the lugs also as well on the rear factory tires as well as cutting out notches in the foam. Also have two new servos on the way the Red Cat 15's. I also bought the Pro Line 1972 Chevy to put on my frame soon. Hope this may give someone a few ideas. Thank you all and keep up the great work.

Added the 10 T pinion to front with 8 T in not a good move put 10 T back in front axle. At least with Losi's on the front and modified stock on the rear.

I can't help with the tires or gear question but I would get rid of those Tamiya connector and use Deans, Traxxas or XT60's.
Some other members may have other plugs they like I use deans.
