I think he is saying a ofna with a picco motor, and if he is saying to get the ofna picco rtr, that comes in at 7.9, which is a less difference than my mouse for my computer that I am using.

Default D8

The wieght can be a positive in some cases. Alot of people say it was easier to drive- not as twitchy. That whole object in motion-stays in motion theory.

i do agree with u on that the heavyer it is the more stable it is and it defiely,
is easyer to drive but when it comes to corners the ligher buggy will beat it every time.

Basically I would recommend The Picco buggy because of the toughness and reliability. Yes it may be on the heavy side by .3 or .4, but I dont think you will notice it, providing you have the right mill, servos, etc. I don't think you will win the Nationals with it, but you get my point. Also parts are inexpensive and that is a plus!!!

Why would that make you an underdog, as long as you keep the wheels on the ground. But dont forget about those electric guys beating you
