The EFRA with its members voted on a new weight limit of 1550 gr. in the meeting. Several people complained about it, So lets look at it closely
My NT1 2009 oldy with a few hopups
with a life 700mah battery weighs
with the car
and with a heavy body
what have a used with lightweight parts;
ti screws on top
ti trannyshoes holder
light axle front and gearbox
cap plastic gear in the diffs
life 700mah (6 dollars)
what can be done; and going to because its the hobby and it can be done
lose the batt switch (maybe not)
lose the transponder holder (maybe not)
shorten the servo wires (yes)
thinner tank tyrap
lose the griphandle
get the ti axle for the arms from cap
ti wheel nuts from exceed
lose the receiver box (not for me though)
get the small spectrum receiver (much lighter )
tranny spur holder lightweight
anyone more idea`s
Still need to test the life 700mha. it has to last a final naturally
otherwise i have to get an other one and the weight will be higher
I like it, its fun getting the car lighter and seaking for ways to do it without losing strenght and cg.
i hate bolting weight to the car, it goes against my racer attitude and feel of the mechanics and roadhandling.
All it needs is little less paint on it or a lightweight body. and i will be there i think.
Look up the prices and you know the cost.
No new car is needed, all parts are there to get very near and everyone can do it easily.
Capricorn does it easily
Mugen can do it i heard
Serpent , well i have seen mazzeo`s car does it also so the parts can be marketed i think and will be this year i suppose
So lets lose weight people and be faster then the 1/8 class yeah bring it on.
