Interesting. I thought I was crazy, but I also noticed what I felt was a slight loss in traction after going alum / alum on both rear pieces. I think I might switch back to "stock" rear hubs and keep the alum rear camber ballstud mount, as I haven't had any breakage on the rear hubs at all.

Check the b5 nation fb page. Someone just posted the weight change.

I believe it was very minor. 62 % on the rear prior and 60% after. (Ive rounded to what I can remember)

Keep the alloy hubs because they
allow more tunability with the vertical stud .

Bfast sells the same caged thrust assemblies. There $17.99 for pair. I'm sure that bfast, Casper, and avid all buy them from the same place tho

Just what I said earlier...I have both the Casper and the Avid, and they work equally well. Next Bfast order I make, I'll order their version of the caged thrust to try.

Just looked it up. Interesting that there was only a small % change. Also fascinating that the guy who did it owns a $800 set of scales!

My car went from 61.4% rear stock, to 60.4% inline. I did mine a little different than WC as you can see a few pages back.

Got a chance to run a few packs tonight, small medium traction clay. It didn't feel like it lost much rear traction. It changed direction sharper and didn't over rotate. I gained some high speed steering, but felt like I lost a little on the low speed 180's.

Overall I like the inline car, I'm going to get another cradle and cut it like WC did his and see if there is any difference.

1% is a big difference. You have to move your battery pack around quite a bit to get 1%. Not only are you adding 1% to the rear of the car you are taking 1% off the front. This is a generalization not WC's modification. He changed the whole weight of the car which is another story.

More rear bite, drives more square with the RM arms flipped. On the front it smooths out the steering.
