Too many tracks closing in NYC...I will try to make it back to the track this winter once it reopens, but I still have not been able to fix my jeep yet... Sorry, but life gets in the way ...
I also raced raw in those videos: no setup station, no scales, no tweak board, nothing... In wanting to change that, I became obsessed with acquiring new tools, and shedding excess touring car weight: forgive me guys, but once that train caught steam, there was no way to stop it....lol... Blitz 60gram bodies really got me pumped...

Bert, look into upgrading to newer cars. The current crop of cars weigh a lot less than the 10+ year cars you're using. You'll find yourself adding weight and not even considering something as minute as not painting the pillars on your body.

I already have an Awesomatix A700ex(1350grams) for mod, but I will still use my tc4 in stock racing though, and they will all run blitz 60g bodies regardless... I also don't sell or retire my cars. I just upgrade them indefinitely: that's RC racing.....

The A700 is a step in the right direction. What you deem as racing is questionable, at best. Nevertheless, If, it makes you faster than most - keep doing it. I think we know different though, right???

Carpet - high traction.
Less steering and overall downforce.

How is the GSF 2 compared to GSF and LSF?
My favorite now is the LSF, Didn't like the old GSF on carpet.

The GSF11 has the aggressiveness of the LSF but with also the more stability from the GSF.

On my ARC R11 I thought the LSF had a lot more steering and was far easier to drive on the technical carpet track where I drive.

Correct. The gsf2 has the steering of the LSF with the rear stability that the gsf1 offered.

I finally got back to the track, and my tc4 never traction rolled with the 60g blitz gsf body... Thanks blitz....
I also got my laptimes down a bit from the initial RC shock three year layoff...
