If your talking about the guy with the carbon one, my carbon chassis dropped 68g off my weight

Same for me - I can justify something expensive if it gives me a good benefit.

I can't justify this.

The SLRC is like 25g lighter. It is also thinner. I think 2mm instead of 2.5mm.

So for you guys with carbon chassis and all the lightweight parts where are you adding weight and what are you using to make ROAR legal weight of 1499g?

I run a 4600mah battery, a full size servo, and a castle esc. No weight needed! Haha
But when I did try adding a little, I used it get a perfect 50/50 side to side and 60/40 rear to front
If you need steering, put it under the steering stuff. If you need rear traction, under the motor or on the rear of the tower. Keep it as low as possible. Brass parts are pricey IMO but if you don't mind the $, they are nice sometimes

My car makes weight just fine. Im just reading the new lite car is 75g lighter than a b5m and ive seen several posts about carbon fiber chassis dropping 60+ grams. with my car weighing in at 1544g dropping that much weight puts me and anyone else underweight by quite a bit. It seems like everyone keeps saying you need to drop as much weight as possible with no regard for the rules. Ive seen this happen far too many times racing onroad people dump weight and fail tech or get DQed after their race.

The point of getting the car as light as you can... gives you few advantages. Here are some points:

1. You don't run the car UNDERweight
2. Being at weight or uderweight, then lets you ballast for better F/R or L/R balance.
3. Being lighter and ballasted allows better flexibility for changing the car's overall weight for traction and response tuning. If your car is at 1700 grams, and traction comes way up and it is now time to lighten up the car... and you have nothing you can take off... how do you tune your weight? You can't.. your stuck. You're better off being lighter and adding where needed.
4. And last but not least... if you have a much lighter car, you can run a higher MAH battery. Maybe even a full sized square pack. ALWAYS put your weight in your pack if possible (running stock) as there is a voltage advantage in a higher MAH pack.

And to answer the other guys question even when you have a slipper locked down it still has more give than an eliminator which has NONE! I didn't believe it until I ran an eliminator in dusty conditions bc I had my slipper almost locked before and it still had some give. But another positive is that the eliminator is lighter so less


Thnx guys. This thread is so active, it's hard to keep up.
