In this picture. You have weights slid in the side. Could you drill on top of the car to the bottom instead? Thanks for your input 👍
You can do whatever you like. For Derby Dust, we will always drill lead from the side or apply from the bottom. We will never do anything from the top down.
Higher placement means more gravitational potential energy.
Ok. Thank you
Do I place tungsten weights on bottom of car or on both sides?
Doesn’t matter. Just remember you can not drill tungsten weights to make it go lighter. SO whatever you do, plan ahead and make sure to be a bit underweight when using tungsten weights.
