Setup wise I'm thinking:

VRP X-Ring Pistons (recommended piston sizes would be a huge help)
Tekin RS Gen 2 ESC
Fantom Pro Spec 17.5
Protek 130SS
Pro-Line Electrons F/R
FTW Reactor Body
Exotek Slipper Eliminator
Exotek Top Shaft
Exotek Motor Plate
CB Custom Cut Gears

Am I on the right track?
Definitely on the right track. Other things to look at; 3 gear tranny, mip pucks, and Ti or aluminum screws. I'd also be a little nervous about using a slipper eliminator and cut gears, because the eliminator will put some extra stress on the gears. As for pistons, 3 hole 1.4's up front and 2 hole 1.6's in the rear are a good place to start

No it's not bad...I went through my Schumacher and put her on a serious diet. There's a few things I can slim down on. Gonna be racing stock so I want to get it down to min weight. I have a lightweight VTS2 17.5 I can drop in that'll drop me 20 grams. I haven't even started looking at wheel/tire weights yet. I'm running proline prime MC's on JC 2.2" wheels

I run on a really high bite carpet track....so much bite I have to run -2 to -3 rear camber to stop the traction rolls lol
Pucks (20-30G), tape your battery in and remove the battery strap and foams (~20 grams), LP servo (20G)

Taped the battery in last night and removed the fan and screws from my R10.1 and dropped it 27.5 grams....already have the pucks ordered...might drop a 3900 mah lightweight shorty in as well...that should get me under than I can add ballast

weight your esc too. That's gotta be some weight. I was going to put in the reedy blackbox 410R, but weighed it first. Took my tekin gen2 rs out of another car and it weight 60 grams, when the blackbox was close to 120grams. I'd imagine your orion being on the heavier side too.

They could be filled with helium and actually take weight OFF my car, and I still won't run them.

Flame on! Have a great day everyone

Going to build my lite car today.

Are most cutting the plastic piece out behind the servo, then it's wide open instead of enclosed?

My Orion R10 was 85g with cap, switch and all wires in 12ga, approx 3"long.

I should have received my factory lite kit today, but thanks to the morons at the post office that didn't happen. It departed the sort facility last night and it took them 18 hours to make the 3.5 hour drive to the one in my state. It still says today is the delivery date, but the mail comes at around 10am. It was shipped 2 day priority, but then says delivery times are not guaranteed, then what am I paying for!

/end rant

On both my kits (b5m, t5m) I cut out the plastic horizontal piece behind the servo, and behind the electronics corral. Doesn't seem to do anything more than free up room for wires and electronics placement, especially if you run a shorty pack all the way in the back, and want to run your ESC right up against it.

Anyone want to trade B5 aluminum arm mounts for B5M arm mounts? Accidentally ordered the wrong ones. Brand new just opened to install and noticed I bought the wrong ones. Let me know.
