Most of it is brass tubes and rods. Without wheels it's 184.4g (6.5oz) it might be too heavy compared to its size.

I will add electronics and make it rear wheel drive. I hope the solderings will hold... Thanks for the compliments!

Added the motor+esc. I'm thinking about making a custom differential, what do you guys think?

The battery will fit in the back above the differential. I like that the motor is a bit oversized might have to change it from an 8T brushless to something with a bit more torque. I'll check out the differential.

Why not put a smaller motor in back (easier to hook up to the rear end, perhaps a 380 size), ESC up front so the radiator opening can cool it and the batteries under the hood area?
It's great to see someone custom build a car from the ground up. Good luck and have fun!
