Hi Guys,

I'm looking at some diff joints, dog bones and the pivot ball kit from Capricorn for my RRR, but would like to know if anyone knows the weight difference of these items compared to stock parts? Thats a total of about $100US in parts, but need to decide if the weight saved is worth it?

Thanks.

I have not had a chance to verify them piece by piece but I can assure they are significant lighter than stock & titanium parts with no loss of durability.
I would say very close to 1/2 of the weight of the stock parts you are using

The pivot balls are 30% lighter then the stock one's.

But it think it would be really wise to put all the weight savings on the website.
Capricorn parts are high end pieces for serieus customers, who want to know how much grams there saving exactly.
I emailed capricorn about it and they didn't know exactly, they just made a guess. A little scale cost's like 30$ or something.

Exactly! Xray is very good at comparing weight difference with there hop ups.

$25 for some "light" diff joints could mean they are only 1 gram lighter

I will try to get some exact #'s today. I can tell you that they are lighter than titanium, and coated in teflon. Very smooth.
