To save weight, and cut down rotational mass for accelerating, YES. Use them in the front when you are running a diff, you'll damage them using a front one-way or spool, when ya hit something.

Always good to stick to the aluminum ones from Yokomo, or get the titanium ones from Square RC.

Yokomo! I tried the tobee aluminum and the Square Titanium ones before the yokomo ones were released and the yokomo ones seem to run the "truest". The Square Ti ones were pretty bad, they really wobbled.

maybe I got a bad set from Square but as soon as I put them in my car the transmission had a very noticeable bind to it. When I took them out I rolled them on a flat surface and you could see them wobble. The Yokomo aluminum input shafts have been in my car for awhile now and they're still fine.

If i remember right, the difference between LW and regular CGM-chassies is around 7-8 grams..
The blue LW motormount was about 3-4 (at most) grams lighter..

the stock cgm motor mount is cast, the option motor mount is machined, its not really any lighter, but it will draw more heat from the motor.

hi, to lighten my cgm up which makes alot of differmce to me i have removed the front chassis stiffner that goes onto the diff cases amd the steering, i was wondering if it will affect the handling to much and also if it wil make the car much weaker, i have already got the lightweight motor mount, new grpahite centre shaft, lightweight input shafts lightweight chassis titanium screw set, titanium hingepins, lightweight king pins plus a few other tings that i cant remeber, lol. but it stil weighs around 1560 , the only thing i can think that will make the most difference for me is the speedo which is quite old and big but im waiting for the compnay to bring put a new one so that will have to stay, im also using nosram gemini reciver the latest non digital ko servo gp3300 sp2 cells amd a br00d 27t motor,
any ides of getting it lighter.

The problem could be the bodyshell. I have a lightly painted body and my CGM weighs 1530. It has TiR input shafts, driveshafts, RC mainiax driveshaft, lightweight motor mount. I dont have Ti screws yet but it will have soon.
