With a lower minimum weight designers are pushed to make the cars even more advanced.

Most of the somewhat competitive privateers switch to a next gen chassis when it's released if you ask me.
My MRX5 with a med body and no weight is 2370. A super light would put me around 2360. Thats with a 5 cell pack.

With a Lipo subract 40-50 more.

2400 is a easy number to get to.

I would have no problems getting my car down to 2300

You've got mad moves in the pits. I would say that was a top 3 performance!! It's been at least a week since I laughed that hard.

For the rest of you RC Techities, Will has you all pegged...U guys are just wonderful.

did everybody read redrc "Today was lower finals day with the biggest casualty being 2009 World Championship runner-up Mike Swauger. Driving Xrays new RX8 chassis the Ameican ace had a difficult qualifying ending up in the 1/16th final but easily won the 20 minute encounter from team-mate Martin Hudy to progress to the final race of the day and one step away from making it through to the big day. Feeling his clutch was starting to go Swauger planned to change it for the 1/8 final but technical inspection held his car too long leaving him just 8-minutes to get ready for his bump up. Without time to change the clutch Swauger took the start but he lasted only two laps before the clutch expired. One of the pre-event favourites Swauger said he had finally found a good set-up and it was very disappointing to go out in this way." the question i would ask is why?

Wow, What a shame to have the tech guys help ruin your run......dont they take the bump up guys in first, teched and out quickly so they can do whatever they need to do to the cars??

I imagine the whole impound tire deal has slowed everything up.

Does anyone know what exactly is the problem with Swauger's clutches? Is he using xray or a different brand? If xray, how could they have so many more problems than any other brand?
(Not trying to bash here at all, just wondering )
