iRobot Create tailgate ballast

You can open the tailgate up and add ballast to give the back more weight or balance. iRobot provides six little tubes the right size to hold pennies. Each tube holds about 13 pennies. Since U.S. pennies weight about 2.5g each, your max ballast if you stick with the tubes is about 6*13*2.5g = 195g =~0.4 pounds. Of course, you could also use lead fishing weights...
