they seem a bit expensive. i would just go to the tackle shop and buy some fishing weights. toss those into the bumper. or go to a tire shop. ask them if you can score some of the stick on weights they use for the higher end wheels.

I simply use 3/16" ID mudguard washers placed over my front body posts and held with spare body pins.
They cost about 15c each and are easily added or removed to tune the front grip.

I don't know how much each one weighs, but who cares?
Not enough front grip = add 2, too much front grip = take 2 away.
