Why do i need weights to pull?
When it comes to excelling at pulling, chassis setup and weight placement proves to be just as critical as horsepower! Don't overlook the basics! Increasing the overall weight of your vehicle to closely match class rules is an excellent way to edge ahead of any lighter competition. The extra weight will not only help your truck grip the track but it will also retain inertia towards the end of the track, squeezing out valuable inches in super competitive classes. Adding weight to the front of the truck will help control weight transfer to the rear of the vehicle which effectively removes grip from the front tires. The front tires will always be cutting better dirt then the rear, sticking them to the track is critical. Weight will help do that. It should be noted, all of this extra grip and weight will increase chassis and steering stress. Your truck needs to at minimum have tie rod sleeves, a centerlink brace and some form of front suspension stop to limit compression.
