Also make sure your shell isn't too heavy - mine weighs 100g - I make sure I only spray the shell with light coats of paint.
I don't find the car heavy - I tested the Tamiya TRF 415 a couple of years ago and it weighed 872g without tyres and battery - the S400 weighs 850g, also without tyres and battery (with the same electronics).
Ok compared to the Xray FK 04 I tested in the same review, the S400 is heavier, the FK 04 weighed a tiny 815g!!!! But I ended up having to put almost 100g of lead onto the chassis!
TRF415 oldest version, could confirm it, Mark?
I have only MSX, which one are heavier?
Looked on S400 seems lightweight with durable material chassis, but i still think any car must have light drivetrain to gain on acceleration.
Anyway, thanks for your reply.
