    Whatís the best way to weigh the front down?

    Iíve tuned my xo-1 so much, that Iím worried that it will go airborne when full speed ( it goes way faster than 100mph... ALOT faster) . So what would be the best way to prevent that so I can open it up fully at the track?

    My first suggestion, is check the direction of the wind and never speed run against it. Always with the wind if possible.

    Otherwise, the bumper has a large surface area, for lead weights or other options. Trial and error to figure out how much you need given how much rake you have in the front.

    Good advise!

    You can always hollow out the foam bumper pad and put weight in there, the plastic pieces can hold some weight I imagine.

    What I do is I use 6400mah batteries. I get more time, and it keeps my XO-1 nicely planted.
