You will find it will come down to your preference. I suggest you try both and see which one you like better.

Yes, good starting point. The kit set up or Japanese set up is a good place to start as well.

I happened to have the exotek RM Aluminum camber plate and it weighs 11.9g on two different scales. Are you sure your scale is accurate?

My scale says the stock and exotek parts are the same weight.

I found the titanium inner hinge pins to bend easy, let us know if you have the same experience and what brand you use

Where are you guys getting the LW chassis? I see it listed on the Kyosho USA site but it's shown as "not for sale". Does anyone have them in stock or are we waiting for the next batch to come out in February?
