we have a test race last week.
1) 3 lipo + 10.5T ( 1200 g )
2) 2 lipo (28C) + 4.0T ( 1380g)
3) 5 cell nimh ( SMC ) + 3.5T ( 1400g )
4) 6 cell GP3700 + 3.5T (1500 g)

almost the same speed on each corner area , but "3 lipo " has more punch on the straight road and no sign on power drop during 4-5 minutes.

** more handling @ 5cells
** too heavy on 6cell touring
** easy to charge battery and playable = 2 lipo (2S1P)
** 3 lipo - no tires wear and the CVD will be long long lasting ...etc


hope can change the size and weight for the hard case lipo battery .

Nice set up,

Just be careful as those flight lipo have no protective case if you crash.

Definetly not race legal in UK

Good to see, that I am not the only one who likes to see more light TC's on track! Of course alainchan you were first

Now that the TC6 hopefully reaches me this week, I transformed my TC5 from a LRP-HPI-Challenge-Car back in a Lightweight-Version. But now I take it seriously!
I threw out every "normal" electric component and replaced it with lighter and smaller ones. Here is a list:

* Motor: MZ A380-500
* ESC: Quark 33A ProCar
* Servo: Power HD-1810MG
* Receiver: LRP C3-RX 2.4Ghz F.H.S.S
* Battery: SLS 2200mAh 45C APL
* Body: HB 09x LW
* Tires: Keil ZR-040 TC-Foam-Tires

As lightweight fan I added TiR CVD's (I think the last ones in germany) and some titanium screws. Still to come are titanium hinge pins and ball studs.



* Weight Chassis: 537 Gramm
* Weight RTR with body: 829 Gramm

First test drive happens this friday. The A380-500 Outrunner showed already with a car weight of 1081 grams the performance of 9,5t and 13,5t motors (something in between). Now it has 250 grams less weight to accelerate I am excited how it will perform and how long the battery will last...

In fact I even pushed the weight below the 800 grams!

If you can't believe it then check the weights of the components I use.










Without electronics a TC5 weights around:



So if you use Lunsford titanium parts and non-standard-electronics you are able to reduce the overall weight this way. If I had used an aluminium pinion and would have CNCed a custom TC chassis I am sure it is possible to get below 750 grams.

My standard TC6 with LRP electronics and 295gr. battery has an RTR weight of around 1270gr. without weights. So if his TC has an similar weight then it is possible. My softcase 2s Lipo (shown in the pics above) has a weight of 132gr. His mini battery is maybe similar.
Maybe he also uses aluminum screws or maybe titanium. This would bring another 30gr.

Started a new lightweight tc project today.
Base is my spare TC6.2 chassis (471g).

Components will be:
Servo - TP MG92B 16g
Esc - LRP Nexxt 4X 21g
Motor - LRP Vector Micro 370 76g with pinion (too heavy )
Battery - Hacker 2S 1800mAh 25C 104g
Receiver - LRP C3 6g
Tires - Sorex 24 95g
Body - Pf Dodge Dart Lw 90g

Unfortunately chassis and motor are already very heavy. The motor adds up 20g more than my last lw-project outrunner and the chassis Idk, but I think the modded TC5-chassis was lighter...
Today I made the servo mount and a servoarm conversion. The original servo mount was much to big. I removed it and build a new one from two brackets.



Next will be a new motormount.

NICE

BTW You want a Blitz 0,5mm body. They come in at 65 painted. Icing on the cake: they are much tougher than Protoforms, even though they are thinner.
