Did I miss something? I thought I had kept a pretty close eye on this thread but I don't remember you mentioning an RTR?

Can you provide any more info at the moment or was this just a Tease?

But to stay inline with Losi's recommends, I included them. If anyone decides to omit the tiny shims, do so at your own risk and know that you chance ruining the gears. That being said, I'm sure someone will try it and I look forward to seeing thier results.

They have a bleeder hole in the side like a 22 shock cap. They are not "vented" like the EU 8ight caps.

72 grams is the advertised weight savings which is a little over 2.5 oz.

You don't "need" the bleeder caps but it really makes it a LOT easier to bleed the shocks properly with them. If you don't have the bleeder hole caps then you basically are in trial and error in getting the right amount of oil in the shocks but it can be done.

Nearly 3oz lighter. Its 73-74 grams lighter than stock

Well, no...but is is a serious pain to bleed them right without the holes. The holes make it MUCH easier.

I just cant beleive no one has commented on the 4 pole long can 2800kv motor yet. You all asked for a little more over the 2400 castle and so I got it and the thing is awesome.

Tested it in 105 deg weather, 3 packs back to back and it never went over 170 geared at an 18.
