no. they went 5mm deep (in 6mm material

i think in all they came out almost 30g lighter. how cool would these look if the pockets went all the way through? if they were 7075 we could almost get away with it. now that would be a hop-up worth paying for.
i have no idea how i'm going to get this car down to 50oz with a 19t-6cell, but fortunately, vegas gives an extra ounce, so i'll have more time to figure that out. (and there is no way i'm using any titanium in the suspension.
