    the deal is that if you buy online you also have to pay for shipping, so any price difference is about a wash.

    no, don't remember the part numbers. got them off ebay I think, but can be found on the hotracing site also. the 16lb are silver and the 15lb are red, but listed to fit the 1/16th traxxas cars.
