The cars never handle as well on Asphalt with the alloy pieces.
Check out all the pro level cars, they always run plastic.

The only cars that run alloy are people like corally, who cant get molds done correctly, and have very small production runs.

I think also the WE will be a fully hopped edition with all the features, which will be used in Thailand in November (1C-1C and 1XA - 1F), Spool inside, One Piece Topdeck (like RCm said), a aluminum steering brace, which can be spacered to the regular one, and last but not least the new blue titanium Turnbuckles. About the price: I guess it will be 79.800 Yen. Pics will be available from mid October.

1XA-1F rear? Are they running realy 3,5 rear toe in

Hm why not. with the huge power of the BL motors, and the 6cell rule of the worlds, i think this cars will realy realy realy be hard to drive / handle.

No, the new 1F suspension mount correspond to old 1E, so still 3

Actually, thats wrong. The 1F is wider than the 1E. Whilst the 415 version 1E may initially seem the same width if you line it up with the 1F. However, this is a bit of an illusion, as the 416 version blocks (such as the F) have less material around the ball area, so whilst it initially appears they are the same width, the spacing between the suspension ball holes is wider.

Ed

use some balancing devices to keep the car balanced at all time.
Place weights as close to the centre of the car and as low as possible, so preferable on the chassis plate (just in front of the servo, or in front or back of the battery, or behind the motor. If you use some tiny flat 20 grams-weights you can add some without disturbing the functioning of the servo and other mechanics)
What a lot of people do, is cutting out some metal plates (or pieces of lead as used by plumbers and roof-makers) and tape them to the (top of the) Lipo. This way, you just add weight where it was before (when your car was balanced with the NiMH-battery.)

250 is a fair bit of weight. The two guys I know that are doing it with balance weights have them everywhere and their cars are heavier on the electrics side. I copied JimmyMac's idea below. With the SMC 4000 lipo, PPD stainless steel base, and 2.2oz lipo lead my car was 1496 so the rest was easy with balance weights
