Have been enjoying the forum for the past year and it’s finally time for my first post here. Thanks for the wealth of information!
Got a Yeti XL and a Wraith PS a year ago… decided the crawling scene is much more fun. I’ve upgraded almost everything on the wraith and just recently understood what a difference the extra weights in the wheels make, when I switched wheels with a mate that had 300 grams extra in each front on his comp crawler! I have always avoided putting the weight in the wheels for the obvious: to reduce broken parts!
And here is the question… I want to add as much weight as possible, but NOT in the wheels. Could you please advise as to what would match my setup? I’m running:
SSD Dhole 2.2 with Proline sswampers XL
Vanquish axles, knuckles, lockouts, c-hubs
What knuckle weights would fit? Or could I get more weight by adding a wheel hub extender and brass rings?
Living on an island in Europe it’s a b!tch to get parts delivered here and the last this you would want is the parts not to fit so I would immensely appreciate feedback!!!
Next step will be to build a wroncho, maybe on the scx10 II platform
Thanks for the invaluable information everybody is sharing! “thumbsup”
