I hope you're right...I think it'll work. Something like the Mi2 and the Mi2EC...let's see what happens.

JRX-S-R 3 lbs. 7 oz. (1568 grams) KR-302-F receiver, PDS-2413 ICS, Novak GTB plus motor, 6 cell pack

Actually I had always thought that brushless was a lot heavier overall, but it ends up being about the same weight as a brushed system after you consider the lighter motor. Some of those weight #'s look really odd. Especially the difference in Mi3 weights. And IF that's true about the Phi, that's pretty amazing considering it's a 6 cell pack

Don't know how accurate those #'s are.

let be honest here the only way to weigh a car is with not body servo wheels batterys speedie motor pretty much anything. i mean sway bars add weight so u really cant compare weights that much.

Some brushless systems are heavier then other too. Just by replacing my KO speedo and stock motor with a GTB 13.5 system, I gained 45 Grams!!

I dont really think a couple of grams here and there matters that much. But as manufactures continue to make cars lighter, ROAR will still be treating every car as if it still 1995. You end up adding a ton of wieght to you ride just to be legal. I'd rather shed wieght

I replaced my MRT TSX ESC & Monster with a Nosram ISTC and Novak 13.5 and gained over 40g.

Decent BL speedo's are heavy, it's a simple as that....for the moment.

Randy are you saying your BL motor is lighter than your brushed motor? Every time I weigh BL stuff both the ESC and the motor are heavier.

My PHI weighs 1357g with a lightweight, S9451, GTX, Spektrum Micro, and CO27.

I dont know if anyone saw the new Ko Brushless, but it looks small! KO Brushless
