Yea and it sorta seems like you and xxx-ntad2 racer are the only ones responding anymore. lol I guess I will worry about it as I get the money. I do need to concentrate on milling the chassis out though.... any ideas of a target weight? peace EThan

What all would that include on the chassis? (tires,battery,esc,motor,reciever,servo? etc) I am guessing everything? Thanks Ethan

Well guys I have been really busy with school and soccer and such so I havne't gotten much done. I still have no money so I can't buy the front in parts. But I am goign to try really hard to get into the shop this week to cut some parts and lighten some.All my same questions still apply...any ideas of target weight I should be shooting for? Should I get aluminum or plastic hubs? Also ideas on how to lighten the chassis with out sacrificing lots of stiffness and strength? Thanks Ethan

Well I went in to day to lighten the chassis. I was only able to do the bottom chassis cuase I kept breaking the blades but... I weighed it and the top adn bottom chassis equalled 288g before I cut it and about 220g after.I re built it and I glued the the hubs together with cement and super glue for a temperary fix so that I can show my Tech ed teacher it running. Tomarrow I am going to take it to schoola dn hopefully rip it downt he halls. peace Ethan

Maybe you can use a B4/BJ4 setup since you are using the same diffs that the BJ4 uses.

I might use some parts from the BJ4 but the a-arms are too short. Peace ET

Oh yea.
Well maybe you can steal the design since they are so strong and stretch it out to the lentgh of the current arms.
