No need to use weight as a spacer between the seat/chassis.

I’ve had to add 50lbs+ my whole life.

Hang six 5 pound weights on the back of the seat and one 5 pound weight on each side of the seat. Make sure you do this on the scale though to make sure your weight distribution is correct. That’s the most important thing when adding weight to the kart.

Shoot for around 42% front weight.
