Hi,

I race my tt-01 in the Dutch Tamiya Cup. I still suck at it but I thoroughly enjoy it anyway. I do make an effort to optimize my car. In the past week I took it apart and rebuilt it to loose weight. It had become a bit of a parts stack... Everything on there is Tamiys produced, except for the servo, lipo, motor cooler and Tx, of course. Motors in the class are Carcon Cup Machine handouts. I have one, too, for practice:

This is the chassis as it stands, now:


Before:


After:


Now I am looking for more ways to loose weight, other tips are of course welcome too. I do not consider dropping 100 bucks on special screws to loose 10 grams, but would a light weight body make a big difference, for instance?

Thanks,

Hugo
