Perhaps you're right! I guess the bottom line is that there is no standard for stating the weight of RC vehicles.

However, the difference in weight between tires/rims and a Brick SQ battery and a pan car battery are WAAAAAAAY different; not talking about a couple grams here.

I'm leaning to your idea of the car without added weight, rims/tires and battery.

My car weight without rims/tires, battery or added weight is 1132g (with wheel nuts on).

I'm trying to get my car down to around 1285g without battery so I can use a normal shorty battery and be around 1510g ready to race. That way I'm sure to not loose any punch or top end towards the end of a 6min race.

lol, I was being sarcastic.... lol. FYI I have changed tires and gained/lost 40-50grams. Most people need to balance their weight around the electronics they own and the tires that work locally. I guess some guys might go buy all of the light electronics just to keep the weight low. Most guys buy the electronics they like. Even though the orion is heavy, many guys will run it because they like it. The will drop weight with alum bones, slipper eliminator, puck systems, Ti parts and so on. Getting you weight low with a RM plastic chassis car is not very hard. But the alum chassis of the B5M and the convertible cars makes it hard to get the weight low. Keep in mind though, sometime more weight is better. On a loose surface where I need to calm the car down, I like full packs. I have lightened cars to the point where they were undrivable.

The standard is ready run, as you would throw it on the track, that's how all rule books state that car weight is measured.

What's the benefit of running the straight arms on the front? I wonder if they're also using the B5 front shock tower.
