Default Average Weight of Your Touring Car?

I was curious about the overall weight of the newer touring cars with a complete electronics setup. I am just looking for the weight of the car, completely setup with everything except the battery. I know there are a ton of variables that will effect overall weight, but I am just looking for some general numbers. I have some old TC3s and TC4s I am running and I am curious if the weights are similar to some of the newer cars... or if they are just fat pigs

TC4 standard edition with 4X4 Slash electronics, lots of cooling fans - 1373g

TC4 Team Edition with Mamba Max Pro setup, 9452, lots of cooling fans - 1318g

TC4 Factory Team Edition w/ brushed setup and 9650 - 1098g

TC3 standard edition w/Mamba Max Pro setup, 9252 - 1225g

TC3 standard edition w/brushed setup, 3151 - 1081g

What does your touring car weigh w/o the battery?

My Yokomo BD completely all in RTR is 1360g.

Without a lipo (orion 4600 (270g)) and balance weight (20g) it is about 1070g. Thats running a GM Genius 90 with 13.5 motor, KO 301F reciever, personal transponder and a Savox lo-pro servo. Hope thats detailed enough

i drive a car that is a little older than the TC3, the kawada sv-10 alcyon. wihtout batteries but with the body its 1230g. with the batteries its 1430g.
in the days of the NI mh 4200mahs and brushed motors(2006), my car would weigh in at 1650g. many cars at the time like the 415, pro4 they all had to have weights addd to them toget 1500g. so i magine cars today without the batteries wshould weigh at 1000g - 1100g.
