dont get sucked into the lighter is better mindset, yes it does help the suspension do its job but a heavier car in certain situations can be better, also it very much depends where the weight is removed from, for instance taking weight from the drive will aid accelaration and taking weight away from the wheels/tyres hubs at the end of the suspension arms will help the suspension as well, just random reduction in other places will help but wont impact as much on the cars performance, so pick which parts you replace carefully as some will be money well spent others wont hth

very low profile and is light. make sure the body holes are big to allow chassis flex otherwise the body will break in the front from the body pins.

hey guys

have you guys had a problem with the brakes binding on when at WOT? and if so how'd you fix it...

when i go to WOT or a fair amount of throttle the linkage rod is getting stuck against the brake levers and pushing them towards the fuel tank which is enough to engage against the brake disc's The levers are going to wrong direction for normal braking but because the brake cam is rounded on both sides it still engages the brakes...

I could bend either the rods or the levers but i didn't really want to as the rods can spins around on adjusting the brake bias so that makes it point less and could make it worse when they do spin 180degrees therefor having the bend going the wrong way...

Thankyou
