So I'm guessing you'll be around an illegal 1458-1470 grams ready-to-race (club race).
Actually those figures are for Rubber Tire racing. Per ROAR the foam tire weight (for carpet racing) will be posted in the 2005 ROAR rule book and is 1418g.

You are 30 some odd grams overweight, but I'll add that this is lighter than I expected! Very cool!

JKA, wow! My FK is about 1399g RTR (FK chassis, 58mm Jacos, PT and body, ). If I go with a BMI 350 chassis, do you think that will throw me over 1418. I really don't think I can get it any lighter. I don't even have any Tamales Chubs or alum. steering block on it.

Probably slightly. I run the 350 BMI on my FK. The redistributed weight alone is worth the price of the few grams, though.

True! Which chassis color did you get?
