Weight does not only apply to the X-6, it's all cars. A light 2wd car doesn't have much grip and with the amount of power we have nowadays you need a bit of weight to keep the wheels on the ground.

What dan is saying is that don't just add weight and expect the car to be perfectly balanced.

The optimum weight/grip ratio seems to be around 1740g, this is something that the X team have speant a lot of time figuring out. Once you have figured out how much weight you want to add you then need to think about where you want to position the weight to affect the balance of the car. Again the X team have also worked hard on figuring the best front to rear ratio for the X-6 and Super_Dan has worked hardest to figure out that the dream figure is 35% front 65% rear.
