If you want to take rotational mass out of the rear of your 1/12th you can do the following:
Replace the axle with a hollow Niftech axle.
Replace the diff washers with Niftech Rocket Rings.
Replace the diff balls with ceramic diff balls.
Replace all of the bearings with ceramic bearings.
Replace the wheel screws with titanium wheel screws from Lunsford
Use an IRS left side clamping hub.
Use Parma or TRC wheels as they are the lightest without giving up strength or straightness.
