it is never too light, if you have to make weight, then that is good, means you can put weight where you need it or want it for better balance or to better suit your driving style

How is the new suspension in terms of durability? Heard that the old one was on the brittle side

Yes, but also with the new body, mud guards, additional lightened driveline parts, factory AL front, etc...

Plus the arms are designed, not dremeled (that will be nice)

A Losi copy?? Omfg. Were you around when Kyosho and Mugen were the only 2 competive 1/8 Scale Buggies? It seems too me then all others are Kyosho and Mugen copies with their own changes and designs. And I even think there was a 1/8 scale buggy BEFORE Kyosho had theres.
Besides who cares if it has a thing or 2 like the losi.they ALL copy and get ides from each other. I used too draft different versions of the original RC10L, and years later my ideas were out in place of their next version.
