Attention to detail. Just because it's only 1/2 gram it all adds up. Shorten all your wires, 14 gauge motor wires, short servo, check your tire/wheel weight some are heavier than others, ditch the VTS clutch for the old V2 or a AVID/Schelle slipper, Lunsford makes some sweet front axles, MIP will have there aluminum pucks out soon, Amain makes a 2S pan car battery that has enough power for a stock heat. This should get you close to minimum.

Promatch racing has a 90c 3500 mah shorty that weighs 158 grams. They have a 90c 4800 mah shorty that's 218 as well. All Promatch packs now come with a test sheet that has the Internal Resistance of the pack you just purchased.

Promatch Lipos are very good performing batteries.

Nice review. I like how u included the visual of the slop you were talking about cause I wouldnt have had any idea of what you were trying to say, just because I dont have the car yet and I am a very visual learner. Keep em coming!!

Assume you're looking for screws. Not a kit, but you can buy whatever size you need. They sell button head and flat head screws.

Sucks those and the pro/tech are out of stock. Would it be a huge difference going from a battery thats 212 grams to 155-158 grams?

Trakpower has a 3250mah 90c that comes in at 153g. I've been using them in my stock buggy and love them

And coming from a protek shorty that was 220g it was a very noticeable difference.

Oh yeah, HUGE difference. 50-60 grams can add up to a spring and oil weight change for sure.

If you check the last 30pages back there is a ton of info about how people have dropped weight.
