Pooky-No I have never tested them. I run NMB bearings. Black belt is worth the money. I think you will be amazed on how much it frees up the drivetrain.

jc510-Not sure where you are located however your LHS should be able to get your part on a special order.

BryanD-yes I run it outside all the time.

slobbatech-Its coming along kinda slow....some team driver orders takes days to put in the system since they are so big....lol!

Default Milled-Out chassis

Hi Todd,
I was wondering on the significant improvement or advantages of the milled out chassis compared to the stock G+ Chassis. What is the total weight of the car after it has gone through the diet? I'm about to start on the weight loss program for my G+ Thank you for your time

Fatboy- My car, ready to run with rubber tires, comes in at about 47 oz. without the body. I have mine milled just a little more than Todd's.

J.Filipow:Thanks for the info. That's pretty light. Was there any noticable performance gain?

Hi Todd,
Can you help us out a little bit with the NMB Bearings? I visit the site but they are asking to many dimensions in order to find the bearings... Can you tell us the part numbers for the bearings that we need for the XXX-S. The bearings that you are running is shield or not?

Thanks for the help,

Harris

FatboyJoe-At the Nationals my car 2 oz under weight. I am really not sure if I saw a dramatic improvement in my cars handling when I put the super light chassis.

utracer-Some changes to the setup that Jkerr posted.

Can you gave Barry an award for not posting on the Ask Barry Thread since last November?

Silent Barry is much more pleasant than talking Barry...
