You can take everything out of the car that rotates, shafts, pulleys, diffs, cvds, hexes, spur gears, everything (I excluded belts, bearings and the clutch when I did the same) and put them all on a scale. This doesn't really help you if you don't have it though, it's hard to say if someone included everything if you are getting your numbers from someone besides yourself.

The NT1 with every lightweight component at the time from xray with the multi spool/oneway was about 230g but the LW cvds were not out and I did not count aftermarket non-xray parts.

I was able to get a Kyosho RRR to 224g with an aluminum spool and other things but no titanium but it started off around the 260g mark as a straight rrr evo wc.

Wow, good info there... You are right actually, but the heaviest parts of the transmission are main shafts, diffs, unis, clutch and 2 speed.(whats left huh?) and I think they can be reached easily without disassemblimg too much.

I dont care about anything left(belts, pullies, screws,...)

pulleys are important, I got about 10 grams switching to an older kyosho part with a plastic pulley over the stock aluminium one.

like i said, anything that rotates includes the shafts, pulleys, set screws, cvds, wheel nuts..

I switched some of my 966 pulleys over to aluminium and gained about 9 grams total on the car to have hard coated pulleys but sedan should use plastic.

It is no good, it is very heavy, I'm sure it will affect the performance of the car, the original plastic pulleys are better.

Regardless of static weight, rotating mass will rob you of power more so than just that weight alone sitting on your chassis.

Supposedly belt wear with certain belts and certain hardened pulleys is lower and they tend to gunk up the pulley less. CSO believes this if you run all their gear and I have all of their stuff on my 966 and it's ok. The pinions chunk the coating pretty quick though so I would expect the pulleys to have a short life as well but then again they don't take as much abuse. Supposedly the slick coating helps the belt life dramatically.

Although rotating mass is best kept to a minimum, you must not forget that it is a combination of mass and it's distance from the rotation axis. As well as the speed it spins at.

For example getting rid of a few grams inside a hollow mid shaft is way less effective than getting rid of the same weight on the pulley of a diff.

This also holds true with lightweight wheel axles. It will more good because of unspring weight than it will help because of less rotating mass.

This is why the lightweight wheels are so good. They remove unsprung weight but also remove weight at a position far from the rotation axis.

Shipping for a kit in the US is only $10.00 to $15.00 tops, buy the 733 from a US hobby shop is still cheaper, plus you get better support, 733 kit in the US is only $479.99 plus shipping will still be less than buying it from a Hong Kong hobby shop,
