titanium turn buckles
I think the aluminum damper stays front and rear makes it a little heavier

my buggy comes with:
nova plus4
futaba servos
AKA tires
metal hydryte receiver batteries

any ideas to shred of some weight? 0.2 kilos would be great!!
THANKS!!!!
The engine and tune pipe are the problem for some,
My Sirio STI CL7B was 370grams,now use Picco Evo3 330grams only, and my car total weight is 3360grams without body and fuel.All my car was box stock.

Guys,I think this mugen car like the shocker to be soft,I had tested 550 front,500 rear,The car feel like not holding a line at all at loose track.500 front,450 rear great for bumpy and bit loose. 450 front,400 rear good for smooth track.
As for 600 front and 550 rear is for very high traction track.

No I dont think so. I weighed mine when it came in and the difference was around 10 grams lighter for the bce chassis. I just wanted the chassis for its increase in handling, which it did. I used to run 450 f, and 400 r when I had the stock chassis but after using the bce chassis for a while I felt that 400f, 350r was the ticket.

Mo, it was nice meeting you this weekend.

BTW...I have always tightened the nut onto the piston. Now I have to go back and loosen the nut up on all my shocks. Thanks for the info!!!

I run 600f/500r with 3.0mm front and rear swaybars on dry astro turf. The car is doing very well. My mate Losi can't follow I had a Losi before and I like the Mugen more. I can setup it up better for our astrotracks. The Mugen is harder to setup, but there are much more possiblities than with the Losi. Once you the Mugen dialed, it's fast as hell And with 20-15-10 in the diffs, the car feels like it's on rails

Purchased the bone saver to replace my uni pins and I will have to say I am not at all happy with the device. I followed the instructions exactly and when I started to push out the first pin it split the pin in two and messed up the red tip screw pin. Nest step I ground the split pin flush and tried the yellow screw to finish the job, got it centered and started pushing the pin out, (so I thought) only to find out it was either pushing in our bending the little pin on the screw. So now I have $60.00 tool that is useless. Any input from others who have used this tool. And the pin is still in the dog bone.
