    What does your ERBE weigh?

    I know there are several weight weenies out there....I'm not one of them. As my rig stands, ready to bash, it weighs in at 11.15 lbs. That includes batteries and body. Wondering how heavy this is compared to others?
    I'm running Badlands on Desperados. 5000 mah batts. MMM combo.

    Oh wow. That's a lot lighter.... Aluminum toe links and pushrods can't be saving that much weight. You're running the RPM true track in the rear?

    I've also got an aluminum chassis brace in the rear, CC fan, glitch buster, aluminum pushrod (rear only) and 2-speed tranny.

    50ToGo: How about a pic w/ the shell off. I can't believe you're an entire pound lighter than me! That's crazy.

    Single servo and traxxas aluminum tie and pushrods are a little lighter.
    How are you weighing it and what batteries?

    I'm running a single servo too(Savox 1231). I have Traxxas steel shafts up front...not sure if they weigh more than the summit axles or not.

    I'm weighing it on my postage scale. Nannnotecks(forum wont let me post the actual name, lol) 5000mah 3s 45-90c batteries. I know some extra weight is coming from the 2-speed tranny and the little micro servo.

    Both of my batteries weigh a total of 869 grams.

    Those batteries sound pretty heavy or your scale reads high. My spc 5400 50c 3s weigh 11 oz ea
    But yes that was with two spc 5400 50c 2s batteries 8oz ea and my scale could be off! Small digital with hook. Like fish scale type
    Although I have a 12lb barbell and weighed it and it showed 12lbs

    Your scale must be off a tad.... SPC's website has the 5400 50c 3s pack as weighing .86 lbs, which is 13.76 ounces. My batteries weigh 15.34 ounces each.

    Based on the diff in battery weight, that accounts for about 0.2 lbs between your rig and mine.
