What weight should a rolling chassis (minus wheels) weigh? mine is 516 grams

I will need to add about 250-300 grams of lead if i have calculated it correctly

My Mi3.5 with wheels, battery and shell comes in around the 1350 mark and I have to add about 160g of lead to get it up to the BRCA legal limit of 1500.

I know I have to add an extra SERVO (wish it is a nitro car) to make legal weight in state....
And I know I can convert the light weight bulkhead back to the stock on and get closer to the legal weight...but the lightweight one looks so coooooool

Just wanted to give a "thank you" to Adam Bailey for great customer service. I ordered some items last week and got them on Friday to find out I had the wrong package. My order was sent to Missouri and I got the order that should've been sent to Missouri. Anyway, Adam has already shipped out a "duplicate" order to me even though I don't mind waiting for the original to be shipped back and then re-shipped to me......that's a lot of ship!!! Thanks, Adam. Don't know why or how people could ever complain about lack of "parts support" for Schumacher cars in the US!! You've got one very satisfied customer in Waynesville, OH!!


Troy.

I have been able to fit Intellect IP3800 25C and IP4200 30c LiPos in my MI3 chassis with plenty of room to spare. The height of these batteries are 24mm.

Hi guys-
I'm running low on spares for my Mi2EC so I'm looking for more. Anyone have stuff they want to part with? Anything from a roller to a broken car to a bucket of parts...

The distance from chassis to underside bulkhead is 24 mm (Mi3)
A LRP 5300 fits barely.
