Seems to me these changes gave the car a lower roll centre and kept the car flatter in the corners under power...
did you have any issues of carb clearance using the kawahara mounts? I had to file the deck some to get mine to clear for the collari, now with the pixie it seems i'll have to use the engine mount spacers, but that to me defeats the purpose of having lcg mounts. Just wondering if you had a creative way around it.
Also, in my quest for a lightweight v1r, i've found HUGE weight savings is in the battery. An 1100 mah pack weighs more than a 700mah, which weighs more than a custom pack. I've got the kfactory deck (weighed both fully loaded with all electronics and tubing) with reflex handle and micro battery pack weighing in 5 oz
less than stock deck with 1100 mah hump pack.
5 oz may not sound like a lot, but considering i've been scrapin for .2 oz here, .3 oz there, that's A LOT!
Bad news though, pixie for some reason weighs 1.2 oz more than novarossi engine
