Fortunately we don't actually weigh our cars at the races but I have to ask, has anyone here weighed their ready to run Xi? I just got mine off of the scale after shortening the wires for a cleaner appearance and am sitting at between 658 and 664 grams depending on which set up tires I put on it.

Configuration:
Tekin RS
Single 240mah cell inline with tekin switch
Speed Passion 17.5 1S
JR Z3650
CRC 1S Shorty
KO 408S Receiver
CRC R10 LMP Body
CRC Tires (Re Pink, Fr Magenta)
CRC 16ga wire
Replaced most flathead screws with aluminum (except for on the pod, the 3 at the center pivot and the 4 on the links)
Factory F-Glass whip antenna
MyLaps transponder in holder, wire is still full length.

It seems to me I will be able to change my front/rear weight balance significantly if required to run at the full 730grams.

Your car is that weight because of the shorty pack.

Picture of my Gen Xi with Hobbywing 1s, shorty lipo (enhanced by Power Push), and Team Scream 17.5.

Ran it last night in 17.5 blinky, not bad

Really nice wire job

One of the best Xi (Shorty Packs setups) I've ever seen

Tonight I was able to finish building my Xi. Can't wait to hit the track. Wires around the esc are a bit messy. May spend a bit more time cleaning that up later but for now it will work.

Looks good, are you going to shake it down a little tonight so you can race this Sunday?
