I should be doing other stuff but this fell out of the tree quite quickly.

For anyone wondering why

This is an XC Falcon I am rebuilding at the moment. Both numbers might seem high, but that is because I have glue all the front and rear panels, grill and rear undertray parts to the body, as I am gifting it a new chassis.

 

Before

After a 14.5 gram crash diet

I have since trimmed off a few odds and sods from the insides, it is probably about 24 grams with interior now. - About what a Slot.it body weighed a few years back.

 

Good, this should keep munter busy for a while, so he doesn't have time to tune his club cars and beat me

How does using the lightweight parts go down in competition , is it allowed in clubs over there and in proxy events like the ATCC.

It was permitted in the ATCC - Dave wrote the rules specifically mentioning the glass and interiors.

 

Clubs may vary around NZ, Some say bog stock apart from glue and true tyres.

I think Munter started doing these locally as Mac (slotmadmac) saw a lighter interior would greatly improve the handling of some of the "dogs" we set up for Sunday afternoon teams races - and local series eg Scaley Metros,

Certainly the lightweight parts make it possible to build a much nicer handling car - not a rocketship sports car, but something that is just a lot more pleasant and predictable to drive.

 

My Blue livery of XC Falcon pictured below is not fast, I swapped the stock Scaley motor which develops about 21k but is low in torque for an 18K JK Hawk with less RPM but a bit more torque, so I could use a 13 tooth 7.5mm gear and 18mm Spur in the stock chassis instead of 6.5mm with 19mm spur, without needing to fettle the motor of axle bush mounts.

That allowed me to a use smaller wheel/tyre diameter and lower the car.

 

It isn't fast in a straight line, but it handles sweetly, and was enjoyable driving at club on Thursday against the other Ozzie touring cars

Body on this one

Total weight

That is with much of the weight I "lost" from the interior replaced with some lead on the chassis

 

I have also lowered the ride height about 1 mm or so
