Heavier spring will result more weight transfer to front and you will get more steering. Softer spring - less weight transfer, more traction to the rear. The same with oils: heavier oil - more steering, softer oil - more traction. You might want to take a look at this guide

Hey guys,

Just weighed in my SE car after installing all aluminum screws with electronics(brushless gear) and came in at 835 grams. I will be trying to get it down some more but as of now i am very pleased considering the weight of the brushless gear. With brushed gear i would be MUCH lighter.

Mine comes in pretty light without the body...I tend to paint a bit on the thick side and end up adding a bit of weight overall.

Man I guess the guys going to IIC are going to have to add some serious weight. If I read correctly the min weight for Vegas is 865grams, adding 30grams is alot to add.

Jason,

Your 30 grams too light now!

I think these new weight rules are going to kill brushed racing for good at the major events. The guys would have to add a bowling ball to their cars to make weight now!

Yeah, it will suck to add the weights but i think i would rather add it where i want it rather than be stuck. I went with aluminum and titanium for the screws and did a little tinkering with wire sizes and lengths to cut down on weight. With the car in stock form with the steel screws it will be closer to the weight limit.

I will post some pics as soon as i finish it. I am going to be racing for the 1st time in a couple months so i wanna make sure everything is nice. I dont get to race much anymore so when i do i wanna enjoy it.

I hope ROAR doesn't follow suite for awhile with raising the weight limits just yet. BL in racing is just starting to take off and the size and weight of the systems are just starting to come down. We need more time for the industry to normalize before changing the rules again.

Hey there! I am just wondering how this car handles on a carpet road course. Is this car primarily for asphalt?

The car handles excellent on carpet. At snowbirds this year it finished 2nd place in the A main in a very tight field of various cars. You would not be disappointed.

I wish I had more time with the car; I really wanted to run 1/12th in Vegas this year.
