i got to say those truggies coming in at 10lbs is a bit on the heavy side... my D8T stock comes in at around 9.5lbs... with some stuff done to it its just over 9lbs without fuel...

and its a practice body.. haven't got my final body done yet





grams


weight of a set of calibers



weight of a set of I-Beams

OK, first one is with electronics installed, no wheels, body, engine, pipe or fuel:


And this one is the same but with the JC Punisher installed:


So ad roughly 3 to 3.5 lbs in race trim ( just a guesstimate)

I'm also one that believes that you can be too light, making it harder to plant your power without spinning excessively, unless you're uber-smooth on the throttle ( which I'm not..but working on it )

Not THAT big of a deal I guess. I'm just tryin' to keep all the "entrys" the same, to avoid having to take off x-amount of weight for this truck, then add x-amount to that truck.

(but seeings how you're gonna do it...)

Yes.
2 Ace1015's
1 Amb Transponder
1 Losi regulator
1 Spektrum reciever
1 Venom Lipo.

If you look at the rear of the chassis you can see the balancing port hanging out the back of the batter box.

I Plan on lighting the drivetrain with mugen parts and upgrading the brake discs and engine mount.
