Seeing as how it's Fiorini, it'll probably cost you as much as two regular chassis plates. I couldn't tell you what the weight savings are, but the RC8 isn't a particularly heavy car to begin with. If anything, it may help with handling somewhat, but it'll come at a price...

OK, I weighed my car with no fuel and no wheels. All other gear is in the car and it weighed in at 7.25 lbs
