Akuhon,
Instead of measuring the tiny parts one at a time, why not just cut them all off the tree and put all the parts from the same packet onto the scale to measure? I think it would be more accurate because the rounding off to the nearest decimal is only done once, and also, we won't have to do the math to find out total weight savings.

I think most people who buy the lightened hop-up parts will just swap them all into the car rather than just a few items. People who are thinking of buying the parts will be interested in knowing the total weight savings for each packet they buy

can you weigh your rolling chassis stock and again with all hop-ups on it so we can see the difference?

The purpose of measuring one by one is to get the exact measurement of each item in one bag because I know not all of these items will be used.
For example :
53895 TA05 Carbon reinforced K parts ( Stefner ) number 9 part
53904 TA05 Carbon center plate
These both has the same function ....

If I only tell you the total of 53895 then you cannot compare the weight between 53895-9 and 53904. So it's better for me to give you one by one part measurement...

If you want to know the total weight, (let's say 53895) just sum them up (all the parts with 53895 prefix). You get the result.

Thanks for the criticism, but I prefer that way

I will but with the hop up installed, I can almost make 1 new car ..... so please be patient because there are a lot of things I have to measure before I build a fully hop-up chassis....

My stock chassis with batteries attached (GP 3300 side by side) with body, LRP QC1, RX311 ..... is around 1600s ....

My Ta05 has a weight of 1608gr Stock exept:
1 Tuning diff outdrive
Aluminium steering with carbon plate

The other components:
GP 3700 Side by Side
GM V12XC
LRP Phaser
Hitec 6965
Peak V2 12x1
Ride Honda Accord (90gr)
VTEC 24R (complete wheel)

I think most of the weight can be reduced by replacing the standard suspension with the new lightweight from the MSX. Does anyone has tried this out? Weight?

Some parts, like the spur covers, are interchangeable, and thus you are right to measure those separately.. but the small bits.. servo mounts, spacers, wheel hexes, don't register on the scale.. adding 10 bits of 0.0g each would end up giving you 0.0g in total, which is not really true.. I'm sure if you put all of the 0.0g bits together, they must weigh something more...

Let's say that each piece really weighs 0.05g, just under for your scale to register and not show 0.1g.. 10 of those would get you 0.5g if you weigh them together, not 0.0g. Then again, we can all say what is .5g in the grand scheme of things.. it's just nitpicking, but there is a valid point brought up by Sum600.

Keep up the good work, though, i'd like to see a spreadsheet of all the stock and hop-up pieces.. I've written weights on all of my stock and aluminum pieces, but it's down to the 1-gram mark, and estimated when it came to the decimals based on other stuff I added..

You mentioned you had the possibility to measure more accurately, down to 3 decimal places.. maybe for these pieces you could use that scale..

Yes, I have the balance with 0,0001 gr. It's a different one than in the pics shown here. To use this kind of balance will be time consuming.... it takes times to stabilize to get the result.. 'cause it's a very sensitive device...

I think I will not taking those below 0,1 gr as it doesn't give any big difference. I'll sum up all of the parts together in my scale like what sum600 said.

Thx for the advice.
