But in the end, I bet the extra weight will be a good thing. The extra mass will give it a more realistic when it is under way because small pebbles and such won't unsettle it as much.

Fuel tubing sounds like a good idea. Looking forward to seeing those images.

Yer, I'm thinking the same thing plus the mass is a good thing for towing kids on skateboards.

The tubing keeps the front end from sagging under its own weight now. The front end suspension is still functional, just a bit stiffer. And, the rear end sits nice and flat. Before, the first set of rear wheels were riding lower than the rear two.
Also included a shot of the 3s 3000MaH lipo I'm using. Fits like the original NiMh 7.2v battery.

What kind of run times are you getting with the lipo?

Can't be exact, but I've never hit lvc. I'd say I run it around 30 minutes usually.

I might do a test one day with Eagletree data logger.
