My 808 weighs in at just under 3200g ready to go minus fuel, mine does however have the optional CNC ISS hinge pin braces F/R, optional CNC engine mount and a NiMH 6v receiver pack, two Associated DS1015 servos and a Ninja JX21 coupled to a weighty Jammin JP4 pipe.

I'm pretty confident in saying that the 808 is the lightest car out there right now, mine has been around 3150g before without the option parts and a lighter pipe/engine combo, it really does require little effort to drop another 50g.

you need a proper scale guys for weighing not the scale were you weight flour before you make a cake.

proper scales are the ones like they use for 1/5th scale cars FL,FR,RL AND LR
these will give you the proper way to find weight and balance .

I like the idea of this thread but (in my opinion) itís pointless unless you are weighing the roller itself minus wheels/wing/radio/engine. Iíve had individual wheels show 15 grams difference between manufacturers. Not to mention thereís no consistency in receiver batteries/servos and engines.

Can we start submitting bare roller weights from now on? I have an 8ight and MBX5R I can submit shortly.

Thanks,

What I mean by 'this is all i got' is these weights I have posted are the only weights I have to offer. It is getting redundant saying naked weights are the true measure. We all know that. Go do something about it. All these techno pirates stating every little variance, go weigh some stuff on the same scales and post.

The 7lb 8oz weight was mentioned by someone else on the first page. You got a beef with his scale, take it up with him
