Exclamation Lightening up e-revo

I was wondering what i could do to lighten up my e-revo brushless edition. I dont really want to change the whole plastic chassis itself but to just add or take away some parts that would lighten it up. I plan to race his summer and want to lighten my e-revo up as much as I can without paying too much money. If you could give me some ideas that would be great Thanks!!!

From the locals that ran revos they were actually the happiest when they had them set up to run at 11-12 lbs. They put rpm arms on them and drove them real hard. The truck has alot of unsprung weight which means that the heavier chassis will help the car to handle better.

I would just pick up a pair of 8kmah lipos and rpm arms. Adding run time would probly be the best way to increase performance for your money.
