Default Axial SCX10 Honcho Weight reduction

My goal was to keep it looking still like a honcho but different and lighter

end result

I like the tuner style muffler.

now, take your weight savings and add it to the wheels Some of the local guys who have sweet crawlers actually have pretty hefty rigs, but the weight is on the axle or in the wheels/tires and thus nice and low adding to traction.

Dome and done. I'm running high clearance knuckles and weighted front wheels, because my truck is light in comparison. Rather than running 200g total wheel weight my wheels are 160g each (rim,foam,tyre,weights)

Little bit more weight reduction and a slightly lower COG

Just waiting on a small 2200mah lipo
