as the saying goes find 16 places to reduce by an ounce, and that is what I just did to my TLR Rovan.

Replaced the stock Losi 5ive-T front/rear diffs with light weight 5ive-B parts = 80g
Replaced stock Rovan center diff with stock Losi plastic housing and light weight spur and internals from 5ive-B = 20g
Replaced Rovan sway bar balls with Losi 5ive alloy balls = 2.6g
Replaced stock steel pinion couplers with Losi alloy couplers = 2.8g
Replaced steel shock mounts with titanium mounts = 30g

Not a pound, but over 1/4 pound of weight reduction tonight. Since most of it was rotational mass I kind of expect it to make more of a difference than had it just been taken off the chassis. Can't wait to put it on the track tomorrow!

Well after running on a pretty wet track I'm sure I can nock off several pounds of mud. The truck was amazing though! Pretty stoked that my back up is as dialed as it is.

So, tonight I put on the 5ive-B clutch carrier =18g
5ive-B droop screws =.02g
TLR6203 =.94g
TLR6204 =.1.2g
Pro-Star Ti hinge pins =2.86g

Grand total 23.02g I don't even want to say what it cost to save 3/4oz, LOL!
