I do not have a weighing scale now but will do it tom and post it.
I will compare the weight of the CGM shocks against the TRF, RS towers and CGM towers.

Really excited about the rebuild of my CGM I finally found a Team Suzuki Rear hub!!!

Square made those bumper braces.
you could just buy a pair from here microtechracing but i guess as it is in britain and most fo you arent it would work out really expensive, like i it is for me!!!!!!

Yep I know it'll weight me down, but hopefully after the rebuild I will still be able to make my goal of 1,500g. I'm not that good of a driver and my philosophy has become: If I can finish first- I'd rather look good being 2nd, 3rd or last. (joke only........)

Agower: yes those things are expensive, I'll just limit the taping in my 12th scale.

I wouldn't add the RS right away, try the Blk. vers. out first. After getting all the upgrades I got, the absolutely necessary pieces for me were the wide frt. bumper, the HD arms and lightweight front & rear input shafts and possibly a one-way.

Anybody else can chime in...

Guys, today i tried to push the rear arms all the way back, extending the wheel base and also putting more weight to the front tyres.
THough I didnt get enough runs(crash), i did feel the car is very happy to take the corners, especially out of turns where i feel there is indeed a bit more push.

Thanks Matt!

I'll agree with JB, the wide front saved me quite a few $$$ on spare arms, I still have a 2 pairs left to go through before I upgrade to the HD ones. A front-one way defintely a big improvement, and the addition of the light-weight input shafts on the front and rear.
