I'll have a carbon-reinforced chassis and a 9T motor coming in from Hong Kong in about 2 weeks or so. Hope they're worth it!

I noticed that too? Any handling tips from this Timmie? Conventionally you want the heavier shock body assembly to be sprung weight.

Thanks for all of the weights Timmie! I will be fine tuning my TB to put it on a diet also. The rules for RCGT show 1400g's also. Ready to race I'm at a portly 1535g! (But it's still kicking their butts! Hahaha)

I'm going to the Tamiya track this Saturday. I'll bring bodies and a stop watch.
