Had my first day at the track (and race) with my R10 2015 ATS kit. I didn't run the ATS, as I just went with the setup I got from Sean Williams. Car worked very well, and I am just fine tuning a little bit. I was right on pace for quick laps (fastest lap in the mains), but the drive let me down on the 5 minute times with a few mistakes. Can't wait to take her out again, but it'll be a few weeks with Reedy Race (off-road) now just 2 weekends away.

Great car ARC!

I just thought I would point out the Mile High Indoor Championship that our track is having . We have had some big name racers at this event for the last 2 years.

I would be curious to know since thercracer states in his review that the car is really light... Thanks !
Anyone ?

Thanks for the answers guys. I am still really interested in the exact empty figure, if one of you ever thinks about it during a rebuild.

Box stock 2015 regular edition with silver A2 screw set from the black edition (they are a tad lighter than the stock black screws) and a belt tensioner attached:
448.1 grams

this includes the 4 screws for the servo and the 2 motor screws taped to the car. Shocks are built with oil in them (35wt if it matters)

I just bought a used Black Edition car, and I want to fix the steering rack issue before it becomes a problem at all - but I don't really understand what the problem is.

Is it that the screws that hold the R102508 steering plate are backing out and causing the bearings to pop out of the steering plate?

It's a pretty rare problem tbh. but what happens is, usually on an impact the chassis flexes a bit and causes the steering posts to pull the arms up and down and the bearing pops out of the steering plate.

This fixes all problems with it though:

Brian. when they anodized that black steering plate the removed too much material to compensate for the anodizing. so teh bearings fit loose in the rack. you could either buy a silver steering rack and be done with it or like russ said, use conical washers and screw instead of the button head then its no issue at all. pretty cheap fix. good luck with my old car. enjoy.

Yeah, not too worried about it Doug. Just wanted to nip the problem at the bud before it became an issue; wanted to see what people were doing to fix it. Super stoked to see how the car drives.
