Its really not heavy at all. It depends of what cells you use and your electronics. THe only "heavy" parts on the car are:

1) the steel spool drive cups
2) Steel drive shafts
3) Steel turnbuckles
4) diff balls?- they seem to be steel
5) hinge pins-

Maybe for 19T and Stock they can come up w/ aluminum drive shafts, drive cups? For mod, its probably best to keep the steel spool drive cups and axles/bones...

They have already released ceramic diff balls which will help a bit. THe only thing I'd change is the turnbuckles...why didnt they include some Ti turnbuckles?

S400 is much heavy among other chassis which have included lightweight drivetrain parts and turnbuckles(alu and Ti).
I think some aftermarket brands must preparing to release option parts for it.

The cars worked really well at iic. We were very pleased with results and the rubber car was exceptional. I am sure we will have Billys setup posted shortly.

I think the standard one is the biggest possible. that would be 102 teeth, 64 pitch.

It depends upon the electronics you have in your car - I've got Futaba 9550 servos, LRP Quantum2 Comp ESC, Spektrum Mirco receiver, GM Stock 19T motor and a 3300 6 Cell battery. Also make sure your shell isn't too heavy - mine weighs 100g - I make sure I only spray the shell with light coats of paint.

I don't find the car heavy - I tested the Tamiya TRF 415 a couple of years ago and it weighed 872g without tyres and battery - the S400 weighs 850g, also without tyres and battery (with the same electronics).
Ok compared to the Xray FK 04 I tested in the same review, the S400 is heavier, the FK 04 weighed a tiny 815g!!!! But I ended up having to put almost 100g of lead onto the chassis!

Cheers, Mark.
