Actually , the 1.5 oz weight in the back was to off-set the weight of a Nk Ml pack ...
If you use a 5000 Li-Po with no added ballast, that same 1.5 weight is not helping the car at all...

So...
Only use the extra 1.5 oz if you are running extra weight under the battery when using a 5000 Li-Po...

some of us are running weight under the battery within the tray. We weight the battery and add the difference.With the above mentioned setup this does very well.
Yes, aware of that...and am doing that myself...and it does work well. What I am curious of if someone has come up with a good lightweight setup that works. Just running the truck light with some of the above mentioned setups makes it very sketchy to drive and not fast.

I guess the answer would be "just go softer and try it yourself" but I thought I'd ask around before trying to reinvent the wheel..but if nobody has tried it I think I might.

J concepts makes a "spoked wheel" but you need the quick change conersion for the rear. Nobody else makes a wheel. As for black wheel, RIT dye any of the wheels to get black.

HPI makes a variety of wheels that come with an adapter that will make them work on almost all 2WD trucks...RPM still does make some god awful wheels, and many of them are for the T4..

I would not consider either of those wheels "race worthy" however. But if your looking for a good set of basher hoops, they work fine and some of the HPI ones look good.

Tried this. Still blows. There is too much coating in the channel where the snap washer sits so it just does not seat well at all. I think I have fixed the problem. I took an exhaust spring tool and filed the tip so that it is pretty sharp. I then very carefully scraped the channel with tip of the exhaust spring tool. The snap washer is now seated in the channel properly. So far it is working out well. I will not be able to track test it til Saturday.

Your best bet is to switch shock bodies for the rear ...
