Default Re: Our TRX4's, with a few mods planned.

Iím digging the fact that you didnít spend $100 just for weight. I like spending money on my hobby/kit I just think some of the upgrades are overpriced.

Your solution was simple and elegant.

My deadbolt has gotten tippy from all the stuff I put up high on the body. Iím re thinking everything and trying to lower the cg. I considered wheel weights but throwing $100 at something that you arenít sure is going to help seems silly.

Iíll be pounding out some lead fishing weights for my rig just like you did.

Too true! I hate spending a lot on things when I can make something and have the same effect for free or cheap.

I didn't actually flatten out a fishing weight, I used some lead bar which I already had. I bought it to make my own fishing weights or to add inside of homemade lures.

I usually buy it in rough form from a guy on ebay.
10 long sticks works out at 10GBP delivered.
Each stick weighs about 170g, after cutting it down to size I ended up adding about 70g to each wheel.
The seller also sells a wide flat bar but its more expensive.
