Hi Romuald31, my car with the gear below weighs 7.13 lbs or 3.23kg. I will weigh my STRC converted Slash once I have the ESC mounted. It's MUCH LIGHTER.

Losi 8ight 1.0 E conversion
Tekin RX8 ESC, 2650kv Motor
Spektrum RX
Airtronics 94360 Servo
MaxAmps 6500 4s Lipo
MRT Transponder
PMT Tires

I think that most of the alumnium chassis 1/8th scale cars weigh between 8.5 and 9 lbs. The 1/10th truck conversions come in between 6-7 lbs, such as the Slash.

Hey Jai, long time no see. You been racing?

Clay

Make sure to check the weather forecast before loading up the car. 60% chance of rain/thundershowers locally tomorrow

Being on call is great when you you're near Christmas!!! But sucks when they call you in on race day. I guess I'm gonna have to try out my GT8 Lite STRC SLASH P.E. at the T4T's race.

With a 5000mah 40C 3s lipo, Tekin's new Pro 4 3300kv and an RX8, she comes to a fighting weight of 5.35 pounds. The initial cul-de-sac tests are soooo promising.

I was also able to complete the Alpha R/C Ferrari 458 body for my Losi GT8. Looks pretty good!
