Default Trying to find out how much a FG 1/6 2wd Baja Buggy weighs???

Guys,
If any of you have a FG 2wd 1/6 Baja Buggy and have weighed it I would like to know what the weight is. Thinking about buying one, but if it weighs the same as the HPI 5B then there is no need.

Thanks for your time in advance.

Carlo, I am almost positive the FG Baja is about 3-4 lbs lighter then the HPI baja.
I would not be able to confirm this to a specific weight until I am at the shop tomorrow.

Also you are aware the FG is a 1/6th scale VS. the HPI baja is 1/5th.

Thanks,
That would be great if you could let me know for sure. Yeah the type of racing that we are doing it does not matter if it is 1/5 or 1/6 scale.

I'll weigh mine tomorrow, it'll be a bathroom scale jobbie though but should be pretty close...It's not entirely stock few extra bits of alloy but will give you a good idea

using some pretty good scales it comes to 25 1/2lb, that's with jetpro, all alloy rear end, alloy radio tray, 4 wheel hydro and reed block so add about 1 1/2lb for that so about 24lb stock.
no wonder it's so fast

Wow, It weighs just as much as the HPI Buggy. Bummer I was hoping it was at least 4 to 5 lbs lighter looking at the size difference.

Thanks again.

Oh and it's got 1/2 tank of fuel in it, surprised it's as heavy as an hpi, I guess even if you allowed 3lbs for pipe (1 1/2 lb might be a bit conservative) and all the alloy parts by the time you piped one and got a few alloy essentials you'd be close to 24 again anyway.

Thats with a lot of aluminum though. I have a Duratrax Firehammer/Smartech Traveller which is essentially an FG clone and it doesn't have a lot of aluminum bits, but I think it weighs around 19-20lbs dry, correct me if I'm wrong.

I think you could be right, only bits not alloy is my front end and the pipe weighs 1 1/2 lb after looking it up + 1/2lb fuel so a stock fgbaja could be as low as 20-21lb, hell my 4plate diff probably weighs 1/2+lb by itself...someone must have a stock baja to weigh for CC
