I'm even 35 grams to heavy with my 12th scale car, but it still wins races!

Oh, I also use the IP LiFe receiver battery.

Short answer is...... it's just Brad being Brad.

No, sorry, I can't feel the difference...
2 tenth?, I wish, that's why normally I run the light weight, and not the Pro.

Hey Guys,

I'm looking to change the front body mount post part #903502 for something preferably 35mm or longer. Any suggestions?

977 for sale if anyone is interested. I ran a few practice laps at my local asphalt track but never raced it. I can sell it loaded ready to race or just the roller. The engine is the RB Products CXR .21 9-Port Competition On Road Engine. Spektrum 6040 servos. I have extra tires also. Pm me if interested. Pictures on demand.
