i sliced and diced my car up last night finally removing some weight

switched the regular 1100mah pack out in favor of a 720 mah AAA pack heck i even stripped the heat shrink since my plan was to secure it to the tray with electrical tape

ditched the top of the battery box and the handle

then i took the bottom off the reciever box drilled a new antenna hole and secured the reciever the the top of the reciever box which i bolted to the upper deck

also i drilled a few holes under the engine and in the front bumper

i cant wait to weigh it now

im going to get the hpi lightweight chassis next

i want to drill the 2 speed housing but im afraid i may knock it out of balance

trophy race this weekend hope this helps (even if only slightly)

Its a boost bottle inserted into the exhaust line to attempt to regulate the pulsations in the pressure and deliver fuel at a more constant rate.

PTP, you have no excuses for this weekend. You should be atleast 70grams lighter. I must try to defend my trophy race title from last year. Last year I ran my r40 bone stock except for the oneway. Currently I think I'm overpowering my r40 so this race I will be tuning down my motor. I'm spinning tires out the turns and once in a while I over shoot so I'm going to go for consistancy on this big race. Also, I'll be trying out the new Aero2 for the first time. It looks so much sleeker than my Losi Alfa so I can only imagine faster lap times.
I know proteus is set and ready
-LILROBBY are you still having engine problems? I highly recommend the ostr turbo. Plenty of power and reliable as hell.

Anyone know if there is a way to give the front tires a tiny bit of overdrive so that the front and rear tires wear at the same rate? My rear tires are consistantly smaller then the fronts after a long day of running..
