I think you said this was your first Schumacher, so let me tell you, light weight or not, you DON'T want to use the plastic body mount holders! Unless Schumacher incorparates a major redesign in the holders, the aluminum version is flat out better and more reliable.
The plastic ones seem like they work as well. On the workbench you'll be convinced that they are fine, but the first time you roll your car, or get rolled by someone else, the things will push down in the mounts. Or if you take a tough hit, they may pull up out of the mounts.
My advice, if you MUST lighten your Mi3 (which I guess is a issue if you run NiMH and/or 5 cell), try ti screws, ti turnbuckles, ti suspension shafts, something... but don't switch to the old body mounts. The new ones are better and work better.
