frank, the lightened drive line. how does it stand in truggy as far as durability. Does it make it handle different buggy or truggy?

8 pounds 13 ounces is roar minimum weight. I dont see how any truggy is going to be almost a pound and a half under unless its made out of balsa wood.

they are longer and wider, what did you expect? more steel/alum always adds weight.
