Well I've got the full weights in there, probably more than I need! I put a full pound into each front tire and about 1/3 lb into each rear. Maybe that's a bit excessive but it's damn planted now! Rovers are nice, but not very grippy in the garage. Maybe they need to be broken in.

I haven't had a problem with the stock body but the Rovers are a bigger diameter so we'll see. Here's some pics from today-

weights from Cabelas


teardown and buildup. Pics speak for themselves

What are the advantages and disadvantages of having too much weight in the wheels? I've heard both, what you said, and having what I got in there now.

Harder to climb - breakovers but more stable.

It's also hard on elecs and the lcc is hard on them already.

Alright, I might be switching out the foams soon so when I do I'll probably take out some weight too.
