Unfortunately practice ended with a trip to the wall because steering link lost a screw during an on-track incident.. Thankfully, drivetrain suffered no damage.

podium finish is definitely in the cards now...

Well.. I do sometimes run double UpperDecks to reduce flex.. and I also prefer 2deg C-blocks.. and of course the Wippler-stick (which is still lighter than the light-er MS shaft included with the new MS)

other than that.. all 'normal' stuff on my EVO6MS

I'm anxiously awaiting the Exotek lightweight spool and aluminum C-hubs!

The Exo 6 cars have suited me pretty well this year. I was able to end the USVTA points season with a #2 overall finish in VTA and #3 overall finish in USGT using the Exo 6 platform along with the lightweight suggestions and tips from a lot of you folks on this thread. Thanks for all the help and advice along with excellent aftermarket support from the Exotek team!

On to the 2016-2017 season now

I made some further adjustments which has me just above the 1400 gram mark:
Trimmed ESC wires (8 grams)
Removed ESC Fan (15 grams)
Installed Ball Diff (7 grams)
Installed TA06 light weight outdrives (this is actually a more expensive upgrade than anticipated because if you are running the 44MM DCJ shafts, you will need to switch over to the 42MM as the caps add too much length and actually cause binding when the shocks are compressed. (2 grams)
Purchased a new USGT compatible light weight body (15 grams)

Out for delivery are the alu screws and carbon center shaft by ewippler. With those final changes, I expect to hit about 1380 total weight.

That being said, if I need to, I can still drop some weight by changing to a short servo which may drop another 12 grams of weight.

Thanks all for helping me out. All this advice added to reduction of over 100 grams.

Hah! It probably will... but any gains in speed will be offset by my novice skills.

Hi!

That's a little vague sorry. Slow because of pushing, loose, entry or exit and carpet or sphalt?

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...
