Is this limit with or without fuel in the tank?
I've added some CF parts to it tp try to get the weight down. I've also added the TI screw set.
I need to loose about 40g more.
Any idea on how I could loose it?
Ive got my Hara Edition at 1733g with everything on it as well.
Body / Personal Transponder etc.
Ive also got some added aluminum components that make my car heavier. The rear brace (by the throttle).
As well the rear lower suspension mounts are aluminum.
Ive got cf steering plate, cf lower suspension mounts , cf brake plate , ti brake disc , ti screw kit , lightweight digital servos , lightweight spektrum rx, cg arms (not sure if there lighter). To help reduce my weight on top of the hara being lighter.
I have lw spool that im going to build soon. Right now using the regular hpi spool. That will be a few more grams removed.
Im also going to probably get some titanium swing arms (dog bones) again not sure if there lighter but hopefully stronger.
Im also going to build a car with a tad bit more on it later. But right now im sticking with this setup , then im going to sell the car and build another hara later on. Unless they come out with something new in between that time , which I doubt they will.
I think they weigh it without fuel. But at club races no one cares really. Either way im just above legal and im going to make sure im right at legal or illegal most of the time. Ill just add weight where I need it after I get to that point.
