-LiPo Reciever pack
-Xceed Ti Screws
Then you have other things like:
-Lightweight bodies (eg Protoform make normal and "light weight versions, there is 15g difference between the two)
-Lightweight wheels (Capricorn save about 20g all round compared to normal rims)
If your a normal club driver, 50grams won't do much to your times. But if your searching for that 0.1 or 0.2 on the limit, then saving weight is a must.
But then again, improving the efficiency of your car will probably yield the same result (eg ceramic bearings, low friction belts, etc)
Funny, this is what i did exactly, from 1950 to 1780 gram for the total car.
Only the xceed diff broke down, the little pin is in the satelitewheel now
, but i replaced the 10mm for a 7mm, perhaps this is to short.
Perhaps the chasis can save some grams??
