Proline Split Six wheels & Proline Evo Foams are the lightest out there right now.

you really don't need a list, just figure in general the hardest tires are lighter and the smallest pins are lighter.

A big pin losi red tire weighs less than a small pin losi green tire.

the tires /wheels /insert combos are pretty extensive, would take alot of effort to compile a complete list.

Standard Panther inserts weight in at 7g. I know the V2 evo's are 13.58g each but are discontinued...the V2 molded are 15.54g each.

I dont own any Split six so you would know better on those....What do they weight out of curiosity ?
