To answer your question, my personal car is 3oz lighter than the stock Associated car. Weight depends on how you build your car. I build my car with all titanium screws, titanium cvds that will make your car alot lighter. Also, considering the electronics that you are using will determine your weight as well.
I hope this is helpful.

Default Rear tower up front

I think when you put a rear tower up front, the difference it makes in handling depends on the rest of the setup. It makes the suspension alot more responsive. You will have to run a softer spring to achieve the same stiffness in the front. My car seems to rotate quicker and is more stable. I would also suggest running the outer hole on the control arms.

Gidday,

With regards to the rear shock tower on the front. As per Craig Dreschers(sorry about spelling) article in Radio Race Car, the reason to use it is because it means that you can use the same or closer hardness front spring as the rear. Have you noticed that to make the car feel the same front and rear on a original kit you have to use a harder spring on the front? This is obviously to do with suspension geometry.

YES! IT THE BEST CHASSIS FOR THE TC3. IT IS STIFFER, LIGHTER, FASTER, AND BETTER ENGINEERED. IT BLOWS THE IRS CHASSIS SMOOTH OFF THE PLANET.

THE WEB PAGE IS WARPSPEED-RACING.COM BUT I DONT THINK IT IS UP YET. THE PRICE IS UNDER $200 AND WORTH EVERY PENNY. I BELIEVE WARPSPEED IS GOING TO OFFER COMPLETE KITS SOON, YOU MIGHT CHECK IN WITH THEM.

KING1 it blows away the IRS chassis. It might be at this time. Be careful what you say as a new IRS is around the corner. I can assure you that the new IRS chassis will be great. Not that the Demon is not nice but IRS never makes anything that sucks.

How long until the new Warpseed chassis is out for the Mission?
