The kawahara 1 piece engine mount weighs less than the stock mounts, and you can get sato seiki hollow shafts which I'd say are better quality than the k factory stuff. Dont forget titanium screw sets. Depending on your engine you should be able to pick up a lightweight heatsink and that'll save big grams

wally: what lipo battery do you get?

here are some pics, I need to sticker up the body tonight

i dont remember what one it was,someone let me try it for a day with the voltage reg and i did not really like how the car handled so i went back to the normal batts
sato seiki stuff is really good but now hard to get here,i may have to order me some stuff.
oh and i just like the pro spec engine mounts why i dono,well they dont break and they i think keep the engine running cooler.
iv never ever stiped a gear when using them.
oh ya ti tirods there lighter and strong but just the mugen ones, dont get the 3racing ones they break just like there cvd's

I've tried the lipo before. had problems with several voltage regulators, and even had a run away.( as the saying goes, been there, done that, got the tee-shirt)

I've got the sato seiki light weight 2 speed shaft on my car already. I've just bought the front shaft as well. (a total saving of weight of about 14g)

One driver at our track recommended that I fit the tit screws for the top first. So they will go on today.

I've got the 3 racing pillow balls on my car. I now the are lighter than the stock mugen ones. I dont know if they are lighter than the mugen Ti ones.

I also just received the Sato Seiki lite alum clutch pressure plate. As well as the Yeah racing flywheel and clutch bell.

All these parts should bring the weight down, but I think that I am still way off the min level. I would actually prefer to go below the legal level. Then I can add weights to the car as low as possible.

if your 3racing pillow balls get sloppy or break dont cry ok and if they do get the mugen ones next i know there more money but worth it.

What do you guys think of the specs of this servo?

To be used for throttle and steering on MTX-4

Sanwa ERG-WG Digital
Speed 0.09 sec/60 (6V)
Torque 6,0 kg cm (6V)
Size 39.0x20.0x37.4mm
Weight 59g

I have had good experiences in the past with Sanwa, but am a little worried that the 6kg torque may not be enough....
