For weighting cars, I use stick-on tyre (tire) weights. Hit the local tyre shop and ask for a few and you will possibly get them for free. There appears to be 2 types - one in 7g (1/4 oz) increments, and the other in 5/10g increments - that we get Here. Check out what is available locally. Gary. ------------------ Gary A.
