This was a fun project, and the results were surprising. I managed to reduce the buggies weight to just a click under 7 Lbs 2 oz. To acheive the weight, you really have to do every little thing. Every little bit counts.


Mods that need to be done.

Cut the chassis as seen in other threads.
Use the Kortz front upper arm mod.
Drill out the rear chassis brace, engine mounts, and center diff support plate.
Cut (shorten) the center outdrive cups by 2.5mm.


Items needed.

LiPo reciever battery, and regulator.
All alum screws (this actually made a pretty big difference).
Titanium Hinge Pins, turnbuckles, lower gear box (the lower, long ones going through the gearbox) screws, and screws (only where the alum screws couldn't be used).
Use everything LW in diffs. Outdrives, cross pins, and screws.
Use LW spur, flywheel, and cluthbell.
Use alum front and rear upper ball mounts, and balls, sway bar mounts, brake cams, and shock mount balls.

Part #'s.

Coming soon...
