For those that haven been running this car long term are the aluminum camber blocks worth the investment? I was thinking of getting the MM block but on the fence.

what are some inexpensive ways to put this car on a diet? RM config. I would like to lose about 60 grams. Already have a LP servo and Ti screws

Aluminum nuts, titanium shock mounts, titanium turnbuckles, titanium ball studs that I can think of.

how much do you lose with the Ti turnbuckles? The screws lost me almost no weight. Ball studs are very expensive and will only yield 10 grams at most. For the price of the studs, I could try the SLRC chassis and lose like 25 grams. Do the Ti Shock mounts save a bunch? I have the stock ones that I think are steel?

Get the 3mm turnbuckles from lunsford, I used these and saved over 15g just from that. My car was about 1525g when i got rid of it. Had a few ti studs, ti turnbuckles, schelle slipper, ti shock mounts, alum nuts, pucks....i even ran a chassis protector (thats 10g right there).

ok. I have the Triad on the car, alum nuts, Ti screws, esc on the chassis, so the foams and esc plate are gone and that car is still 1620 with a shorty. So it sounds like pucks, Ti Shock mounts and Ti Turn buckles should get me to around 1550, which is where Ia m looking to be.

Different rims / tire combos also vary quite a bit. Even the 'old' 2.2 wheels....tlr wheels are pretty heavy compared to a jc wheel.

yeah, I was using the tlr 2.2 wheels. I have some evo wheels with clay tires I will be putting on also. I know the EVO 2.4 tires and wheels are lighter and clay tires should be lighter than M4.

This and you wouldn't need anything to get the weight down to where you want.

yeah, I know about those batteries. And that would be the cheapest light weight option. On the fence about how they hold up over longer mains. Plus they are 4mm and the rest of my packs are 5mm. But I am thinking about that pack.

Thumbs up

You can try the Super Light LiPo's out now Trinity and Protec have them>http://www.trinityrc.net/shop/index....product_id=666
152 grams you can save around 63 grams and they are not expensive. Remember Stock Buggy is 1499g Min.

So maybe it's just because I am a newbie racer and I suck, but I've been adding weight to the thing. Granted I do run on a very loose track and that may be it but I coudn't imagine wanting to lighten the thing any.
