I had to add a ton of weight on my Awesomatix A700 and Xray T4 18 with aluminum flex chassis.

I’m guessing the difference is in the premount tires. The gravity wheel combo is one of the heaviest out there.

ROAR needs to stop being lazy and update the rule book. The site only will give you the 2013 version and then you have to hunt for rule changes randomly posted. Its long over due being it has been 5 years since the last full write. I've emailed them about it before sent a Facebook message its like the only response you get is that nice plastic card in the mail after you send the $35 on signup.

Any rumors of 1320g from ROAR in the future?

I wouldn't mind it at 1320. I don't mind it at 1350 either but buying those dam brass weights get's old for all your competitive cars. Motors are lighter 142-150 grams average vs older 160gram motors, bodies are lighter, by 8-12 grams, Chassis kit's are lighter by a bunch etc etc...
