How did you get the weight so low? It looks so beefed up compared to the RS series.

It's not rated for 4-pole motors or a chassis weighing more than 4lbs in race applications. The only weight exceptions are crawlers and scale trucks and only motor exceptions are the ROC412 in crawler applications for the time being.

I believe it was stated in the Pro2 thread that something was in the pipeline for the Pro2/lighter weight 4pole esc. Since this obviously isn't that, if there still plans for something of an 'RX8 lite'?
