No, close to it though. I'm up in shock oil weight by 50-100. Also added 3/4 oz in the rear. I'm using a 2nd battery "stop" and have the weight placed in the void behind it on the chassis. I then run a Protek shorty with the pad in front.

Here is one of the Invite runs from 2011's Reedy Race held at WCRC in La Mirada, CA where it will be again this year.

Tight & slow track.

I wish my local track was high bite. I'm struggling to make a low-med bite dry clay/mix setup. Right now I'm on kit setup, 35/30 oil, 3mm under rear ballstud, rear lower shock outside hole.

Interesting that they pick your tires.

I actually prefer the shorty packs. With a shorty pack my car weighs 1505grams versus the 1722 it does with a regular pack.

Keeps everyone on a somewhat level playing field.....if everyone is on the same tires and foam, then it comes down to car set up and driving ability.....eliminates one costly variable.

I believe that you have to shorten the overall length by taking a little off the back but the main thing is the height of the bar. You have to dremel the height in half to get it to slide under the body mount piece. The t-nuts are nice because it's only a 1/4 turn instead of 15... LOL

What electronics are you running? I'm 1560g with a 200g shorty. I'd love to drop another 60g.

Makes sense. Are the Proline foams any good?

Interesting, how does you car only weigh 1505g? Mine has always been over 1600 with a shorty pack and now I've added the Ti turnbuckles and a some Ti screws, but added the sway bar, aluminum servo arm, and the steel shock mounts. I'm at 1640 right now. I'd still be at around 1600 with the Ti and without the swaybar, etc. Thats with body, wheels/tires on...ready to race.

I am running an Airtronics 774 servo, Lrp sxx V1, Reedy sonic 7.5, and m11x Receiver, and an old personal transponder.

With the Losi shorty I'm right at 1500g.. I have the lunsford turnbuckels with all AE ballstuds. Aside from that I'm straight out of the box aside from some bling. I haven't done anything special to drop weight... That's with tires and body ready to eat!

Hmm...I need to find 60g in my car to drop. Time for Lunsford turnbuckles, hinge pins, and build my own Ti screw kit. Should cut some there.

I'm full on carbon too, other than chassis.

Tekin RS, Spektrum SR300 (big receiver) & capacitor, S6040 servo, Losi aluminum servo horn, Trinity D3 6.5.

I need to find a 100, And I already have Ti turnbuckles and some Ti screws.... Seriously though, my car is real good at this weight so I dont see needing to make it lighter, but I wouldn't mind dropping about 40g's

To me, the crazy thing is people adding weight... I don't see the need. This is the most tunable car on the market that can be up to 1/2 pounds heavy already... Why add weight? ha

Did you build your own Ti screw set or buy another kit's that has most of the stuff?

I don't mind adding weight, as long as it's used to balance the weight distribution.

I'm looking to drop that 60gs, and then add a little back to even the corners out.
