I remember reading that some say lighter arms give better traction. It has something to do about lighter arms make the suspension work better due to less weight. I could be wrong. I have them on my car and can't tell the difference.

I didn't get a chance to do back to back test, but the lighter arms have no flex at all, and the stock ones have a little bit, the lighter ones seem to make the car a little more responsive, but that can have a lot to do with your setup. Many of these changes can vary alot depending on what your car is doing.

Is anybody using the alloy camber link plate sets? Whats the benefit of running them?

Second is anyone using the alloy stearing blocks?

Thanks,

I believe minimum wt. is 1380 grams.
Top Narrow Chassis
Aluminum steering knuckles and rear hub carriers
KingHeadz bellcrank
Stock screws and turnbuckles.
Old Epic 40C 5000mah battery
Car just comes in at 1384 grams. Probably the closest I've ever been to minimum wt. requirement.
No use for any dead weight on chassis, I did swap the belt sides to mount all electrics as close to middle as possible and mounted battery as far out as possible. It's still heavy on one side just a little bit. But the car is so fast it's not noticeable at all.

Depends on your servo electronics and battery, I have 20g where needed to be balanced and still come in at 1386.

I use Camber link plate alu, is easier to change the shim under camber link.
today I try Alloy Steering blocks...little bit nervous...the Plastic one is better.

No clue.
When using them for rubber tire you must cut the "nub" below the threads in order to make ride height.
when I build shocks I have them measure 49.5mm from plastic shock bottom to top of threaded body without cap.
