Default Weight Thread

I never want to dissamble the electronics in my car to know what they weigh individually, but at times the info could be useful. I'm sure lots of people want to know but dont have a scale. So I just put some new electronics in and decided to weigh each part before I put it in and the old ones once they came out.

Follow up with your weights when convenient and someone else might benefit!

LRP QC1 ---45 g
LRP Spere Competition ---70 g
Novak 4300 (w full wires)---185 g
Trinity C2 motor ---177 g
SMC 3800 (assembled) ---404 g
Orion 4800 Platinum LiPo ---270 g
JR RS310 Reciever ---20 g
Futaba 9550 servo --- 47 g

Thanks man, that's awsome, I was just lookin into one of those 8000 li-po batteries I saw in a mag. The thing has nearly double the capacity of most, and still weighs less, it's it's only $109... I'm gonna make these matched nimhs last the rest of the season, then I'm done with them.

Word of warning
Same capacity cells from same manufacturer can weigh totally different.
Check each individual pack.

Also re weights check your wheels inserts & tyres, you will be amazed at the differences there are
