Default warhead weight

is there a way to lose some weight on the warhead b/c it seems that it would be able to go faster if it wasnt so heavy?

change the tires, the stockers are like bricks, as well as get rig of the reverse and reverse servo, put a better radio with a smaller RX, remove the header tank, and last but not least, put a better engine in, the super tiger is not all that great.

All of the above, plus I got rid of one shock at each corner. Total weight with no fuel 10.4lbs.

I unfortunately had to add some weight I broke the front Bulkheads 3 times bought luminums. How does the shock mod work that looks real good.

get proline dish wheel and proline bow-tie or nubz and your weight will go right down and you will accelerate faster and the wheels flex so no more breaking like that one.

its very hard for the WH to do wheelies, its got to low center of gravity, some people have made it wheelie but with big engines and lower gearing.
