Adding weight, what do you use?

What do you use to add weight to your modded cars?

I've been packing rear spaces with clay and that seems to do a good job with minimal fuss. But it's probably not as weighty as some sort of metal. I haven't tried yet, but am guessing big hunk of JB Kwik would add some good weight...?

I've been using chunks of old car wheel weights...which are lead.
I also put 25 pennies in the back of a mail truck!

Started with lead, that didn't go well with my two kids who wanted to play with my "fast" cars, so I moved to tungsten weights, but now I have tungsten putty. Big drawback is that Tungsten is A LOT more expensive than lead.
