If u are desperate it might pay to try something different.
I have this servo saver on another car and looks almost identical when installed.

Default Weight

What are you guys with T3'11 doing to get down to the 1375-1380 weight break. I'm running a exotek chassis, small receiver, 3/4 servo, motor fan, the regular gear, by the time its balanced out it weighs around 1360 and thats before the body...........so I'm just curious what others are doing to make weight...........or is this a un-obtainable number now?

Thanks

Titanium screws, ball studs using the stock rod ends. Just swapping titanium for steel on all the screws excluding those underneath will net you between 20 grams - 30 grams.

So.. I just did the servo mod to my T3R.. it was kind of tricky being its the single arm in the middle, but I got it! I drove it in the kitchen for a bit, and it feels smoother, I dont know if its because I thought it would be, or because it is.. I think its the second one Looks clean, and gives a lot of room for sure.

Spent a while fussing over this one myself

I'm at 1360 with steel screws, a full weight body and two 30mm motor fans, Sorex 28JB. My battery is 285g, I won't buy anything heavier!

But
Tyres with conventional moulded insert +20g
New generation batteries like SMC 6000 weigh ~324g, LRP 6200 305g +
IP 5800 weighs ~290g or the Orion 6500 which is an awesome battery comes in at only ~285g
Speedo - Tekin, LRP are much lighter than ORCA, GM120 (Novak?) for example, can be 30g difference.

Use fan but minimal or no heatsink

So with a battery at 305g + heavy speedo it adds ~70g to the car.


Worth considering a lightweight body, save 20-30g without spending all that money on Ti screws. I cut all wires very short, especially those 12G speedo wires they weigh a surprising amount you could easily save 10g there if they are not already cropped short.

I made my own lipo hooks to move the battery out to balance, I've got no lead at all on the car and the corner weights seem good.

This is an old pic but you get the idea

Thanks for your opinion, much appreciated. That's part of my setup problem being on the new gen Revtech 6000 battery, which comes in at about 320 grams. Between balance and overall weight its just not adding up.

Any others on similar equipment and opinions please post. Thanks

Smile

Thunderpower 3200 40c (208grams) for stock and thunderpower 4200 40c (263grams) for mod ! Heavy packs over 275grams will probably require some balancing unless you're running heavy electronics . If you combine all the lightening possibilities you might be able to get your car around 1200grams....
