Has anyone ever ran with weight on the axle tube itself? If so what was the outcome?

I have seen some poeple do it, not many though. I wouldn't do it myself. Putting the weight right on the axle itself will create alot of unsprung weight. Thats not a good thing.

thats right you want as lillte unsprung weight as you can that and the fact that if you put that weight further back in the car it will have more of a leverage effect and help you more then right on the axles
