what did the lead get you that the brass suspension holders would not have? I assume your running mod as well. The stock guys wont want to toss in a sheet of lead.

You guys in stock ?

Try the thin sheet of lead under the battery if your using a short pack, you will be amazed..
extra weight = 2.8 oz
1/24 lead sheet

Guarantee it...

Kit comes with standard orings, the xrings are grooved and give you an even better seal. I think they're a worthy upgrade, IMO, but it is an optional hop up part.

I don't consider them optional. They work so much better than the stock rings

I have it in all my 17.5 cars and just put in my B5m. Overall weight is less, therefor less rotating mass. B5m is going to be a mod car. the adjustability with the red and white pads is great.

save yourself some money and just get the associated vented v2 slipper.. works as good or better then the schelle and is both lighter and way cheaper.
