Of course not. It's really a rear solid AXLE.

i sure do think you still dont get it !

if you think weight saving is kinda black hole for money in this hobby, you will just end up putting a snail running your V1R under a VDS body !

The thickness is very compareable with the kawa and Frewer VDS shells.... I like the protective film (I think it has it!!). Molding is still not to Kyosho std but Kyosho is VERY weak at the sides!!!!
So the same old question - Is it money worth?

I have a bad image of LSD after seeing the bad experience from Manticore.

Sure I know what you meant. A 19g saving in rotation mass is worth the 200g saving in static weight. That's why I said that those static-mass-saving-utilities like titanium screws are not worth.

I'm on your side, man.

People have different concepts of 'value' most of my colleagues think I am stupid wasting all this money on RC cars..... but hey... it's better than wasting all this money on beer because I just end up p!ssing it out anyway!!! Both still gives me a headache!!!!!
