I'm a little custom though, I could shave a few more oz w/ the stock losi carbon towers, but the integy ones were priced right at the 14ea I paid for them and they have additional mounting holes for tweaking if you want as well. way beefy.. but with that came a few extra grams on each.

there are a few other easy items I can shave off a few more oz with I may go for, but I'm pretty close to done messing.
Reading a few of your prior posts and about guys having great results with the 1410 is what has pushed me into wanting to try this set up. Of course if I did I would (have to have) all the light weight goodies IE "CarbonFiber and Titanium" to maximize the already bantum weight esc/motor combo.

I'm a really big fan of the shoeGoo myself. Our LHS sells the little 1.5oz tubes for $4.69, As much as I like to support them those prices kinda suck. I just found ShoeGoo super cheap on Fleabay, 2-5.0oz tubes delivered for under $11.00. Drywall tape and a ounce or two of ShoeGoo makes the bodys last twice as long easily.

That motor is enough w/o going light weight.. I just find the truck handles better for me w/ a little diet. personal pref.

I'm thinking less weight the less the drive parts have to strain and less damage when I stuff it in a pipe
I'll go where the wallet takes me I guess, it seems the weight saving stuff cost 3 times more ?

I've finally gotten sick of the weight/heat/runtimes so the 1410 and a little diet are in the works for me too. Think 6lbs rtr with the body on is doable? Unfortunately, as much as I love it, this might mean ditching my RX8 and going back to an MMP. That thing is bulky.

Which Tenshock were you running and how were the temps? I have been waiting for the Tenshock 4000k to get back in stock so I can see if it's any better than my 1410. The 4600k looks tempting but I'm afraid it my be a little to hot for Socal in the summer.

Rage, glad to see you're alright man. Where'd you get hit if you dont mind me asking? That's some seriously wild stuff. Hopefully it's just a superficial wound and wont keep you from going to the track and hopefully no permanent damage.

the items that make for the biggest savings only involve a dremmel. Battery tray being the most impactful, radio tray is #2. The 1410, and light speedo are important and another big chunk is in your lipo choice.

most effective money spends on hop ups are the losi carbon towers and stand offs. After that prices climb.. Ti turnbuckles, ti harware, ti pin kit, carbon ackerman shred small amounts each.

the next big savings would be with a milled chasis.

the aluminum rear hubs add weight, alum shock caps add weight, alum shock towers add weight

I also found that redoing the motor wiring also saves quite a bit of weight, by using the amount of wiring that you need only.

looking into carbon fiber next. which is better in everyones opinion SNR or losi shock towers?

"stand offs" is that the chassis brace?
