Change screws to Ti ones (yes it's expensive, but Take Off makes good sets of screws), also the turnbuckles to Ti (the black ones of the M2 are way heavier).

What else ? You could change all the ball studs and rear dogbones (not front) to aluminium ones.

I just finish tuning my 414. I add and remove some parts. I removed the belt tensioner. I found out that is not necessary and it makes the belt looser. I also remove the alu. diff plate. It is realy damn heavy. Changed all the bearings...etc.

Help- That C-hub is 5.5 degree caster. How should I do the setup with it?

Ah ah ah, looking at your car I could think it's mine, except that mine was a M, so most of the alu parts are not blue (I prefer, suits better the SSG) and I don't have the square parts (don't find them useful as the standard ones are ok)... And I have Acer ceramic bearings AND ball diffs ah ah ah...

Anyway : the car is amazing, TQ in french nationals this season (17T class)...

Oooooh, I just noticed : you don't have the square Ti axles, if you really want this car light, better get the Ti axles and remove the alu steering blocks, C-Hub (well, maybe not that one) and rear hub carriers...

G4t2 if you're talking about the suspension mounts, they're from the TB Evo 3, part is discontinued.

Yeah, I didn't buy those axles. Still thinking about it. Front is little heaiver, but the rear is almost the same.
