I use ssd portal weights up front. Keeps the weight off the drivetrain.

Agreed portal weights would be best it helps to keep your rotational weight down and the stress off the gearing in the portals.

Yeah no wheel weights. This is 2018.

Both F/R but if you can only do one then do the front first.

I use all these on the front, and the portal covers on the rear. PLENTY of weight without anything on the wheels

These are the ssd. They are 75 grams each. I also added the bowhouse low cg battery tray and it really improved the rig.

This is 2018, only the fronts need it if you fix the other weight issues of the truck.

Natedog is on it. I got mine from from bowhouse. Shapeways was more expensive because of algorithms they use for material used.

Just a note for the the lcg tray fits up to138mm long and 53mm battery size.They also sell the brace to accommodate longer battery packs.

You will need a Velcro strap as well.

Here are done before and after of my rig.

I right now use gmade SR03's beadlocks as my down low weight. Seen to many plastic axle housing break from all the brass parts at the ends of TRX 4 axles. For where I currently am just the beadlocks are enough weight to make the difference.
