Haha. For 1/4 mile tracks I plan to remove rotor. For 1/8 stuff I will just put rear brake setup back on. Or most likely I will just get lazy and always keep it on the bike. I just wanted to see how light I could get the bike this winter.

Is there really that much weight savings for the rear brake?

Not really, but it also keeps from your rear brake dragging against the rotor and slowing you down that way. There isnt much weight savings on anything from what iv found on this bike. But, when you do 5-6 things that weigh 5lbs each every little thing adds up fast.

John, just get an LiFE racing battery, and keep the rear brake.

Same exact weight savings, and you won't have to fiddle with removing all that stuff all the time.

Looks like you've already got your weight savings accounted for then.



Keep the brake! LOL.

Alien Motion looks like they stuck their decal on a Ballistic battery.

Speaking of batteries.....I have to replace my BikeMaster AGM. Yay

Pretty much done minus a new battery.

They probably did. But who cares. Their prices are awesome sauce.



Saves approx 7lbs over stock. On my bike, that's a high-up 7lbs too. So it makes a difference for sure.

(not to mention the rider mod. Ya know, being slim )

More CCA than other LiPo in the same size and cheaper. Was originally going with a Shorai and seen these. Worth a shot @ $99 compared to $160 I was going to spend.
