Ive been doing some research and I found some ways weight can be saved! some ideas:
TB03 carbon bumper support
TB03 lightweight bumper
46mm TB evo IV swingshafts
TRF 416 belt stabilizer mount
TRF damper retainer

anyone tried any of these parts and can you tell us of the weight difference even if it is 1 gram per part?

I think ESC sit near the motor make shorter wires...

I like that. However, a few changes...
  1. Stand up the low profile servo so that is sits inside the chassis more
  2. Use the Tekin RS standing up such that it also sits more inside the chassis.
  3. Mount the micro receiver on the front left (original steering servo position).
  4. Mount the personal transponder on the front right (original ESC position).

# 2,3 and 4 ok, just place it where u want,
but #1, I also try to place the servo fully inside with saver faceing outside and your method, both will make the steering rod hits servo case except with a very long servo hon...

Put the ball for the tie rod on top of the servo saver instead of underneath. Use a tall ball end on the steering bell crank or use a captured rod end like on an XRay and use a long screw through the eyelet with a longer spacer above the bellcrank.

I like the idea too, but there will be problems with the weight distribution F/R. This car is already rear heavy due to the gear box and motor placement. I noticed that the car's rear is very planted, and this rear layout contributes to it. That's why tamiya designed it so the next two heaviest components, the servo and esc, to be placed on the front. Using the IFS layout will add more to that, and you end up with a very rear biased car.

My next setup will be placing the esc closest to the motor tabs, turning the servo over so the saver points outside. Push the batt as far front as possible, with outboard shocks.

With the receiver (Futaba R603FF) and esc (Tekin RS) on the right and servo on the left plus 20 grams on the right rear and 5 grams on the right front ends I achieved the following weight distribution: RF:303; RR:364; LF:297; LR:363 grams. So it is slightly biased to the rear and I may have to adjust droop accordingly.

So far I really like this car... 500,000 up front and 3,000 in the back... I'm going to try 6,000 this weekend... The car feels very planted and smooth, but It's not as responsive as my Cyclone TC... I realize it's not a carbon chassis but it just feels like a lot of drive-train friction... I just ordered a rear Ball diff, has anyone tried this yet ?
