Default What weight your car has? Buggy/Truggy

What weight your car has? With fuel, and w/o it? What lightweight options are you using? What positive sides the small weight has?

Weight can vary considerably, depending on the type of equipment you use, the type of rim/insert/tyre choice, and even how you paint/decal your body, so for the most part, it's irrelevant.

Some here will likely disagree with me, but in my opinion, unless you're a very skilled driver, a lighter car will not necessarily amount to quicker lap times, and depending on what type of weight reduction methods one chooses to employ, it can sometimes adversely affect reliability.

Jammin X2 buggy: ready to race minus fuel, around 7lbs 5oz (3317 grams)depending on tire choice.

A lot of light weight options

Positive sides-Possibly better fuel economy, possibly better acceleration and handling

My losi 1.0 truggy weighs 8lbs 13.6oz The only thing i changed was the shock towers to carbon fiber, put lunford turnbuckles on and run the new proline calibers(saved 4oz's by switching to them)
