Pretty amazing to see the pile of crap you can build up once you start cutting though. I've got about a fist sized ball of plastic that is no longer on my truck. Can't wait to weigh it.
LOL. After finishing working on my truck last night, I went to pick up the B4.1 to give it a once-over. I was shocked at the weight difference, it was like picking up a piece of paper compared to the SCTE,

Honestly I don't get all the obsession over making the thing lighter. I like the weight of it, keeps it more stable over the rough and bumpy tracks that we have around here.

I have no problems driving circles around the lighter Jammin's, AE's and Ofna's.

Ya'll are out you're damn minds!

Don't hate. I like to tinker and modfiy or I would never have gotten into the hobby. If I can save 6-8 oz or so by using a dremel for an hour, and swapping some simple parts, thereby gaining speed, lowering heat, and extending run times, I'll do it. Why wouldn't I?

BUt yes, I am also out of my gott damn mind.

yeah, I think I stated that badly. I personally would not use it because I think it is fugly. I'm sure like most of their products it is plenty strong, I just don't care for how it looks and the stocker has been fine for me so far.

My SCTE came in today. I'm Going with a castle mmp and a 1410. Whats the best servo to run in this truck? I have a hi-tech 645 but don't know if that's going to be good enough.

I see both side points. It is all personal preference. It really shouldn't be an arguement. I've been running mine with a couple add ons and haven't had any temp or runtime issues but I also haven't tested on any huge outdoor tracks myself. I just know that the factory guys haven't been hacking into their trucks either.

Check the manual, it says which servo they recommend, which happens to be the same specs as my favorite Savox servo for short course trucks.

It's not necessarily going to make you any faster.

All the fast guys winning with Losi's here haven't done anything to'em. Hell half of'em haven't even rebuilt the diffs.

FYI, Orion and Savox are the same servo. Just different stickers/packaging.
