    BDW vertex wheel weights

    ok Rik got me some 22 casings and was nice enough to fill them with lead for me, I have been working on how to mount them. I tried using very small O rings with little success, there was not enough room on the back side of the wheels. The holes are slightly larger than the 22 case so I just took some thicker (Red) heatshrink tubing and whala. It works. I also tried it with just some electrical tape and wrapped it around 2x and that also seems to work fairly well. They just push in place, no real issues with them dropping out so far.

    Here are some pics of the finished product, I switched to the yellow because it was thicker and easier to see if I lose one. However I don't think they will fall out at all.

    Thanks Rik, I have to say that they made a big difference in the climbing ability of the rig, I also took off .5 oz of the servo. When the lipos get here that will be the better test.
