Default How heavy is too heavy?

My 1:6 rubiclod rig is starting to gain weight. It's weighing in at 8.5 lbs.

Should i put it on Jenny Craig or will it be ok as a heavyweight?

Clod axles

9t or 10t pinions
evx esc single battery mod/optional dual battery
nylint tires/wheels

8.5 lbs is heavy? Hmmmm. I was guessing my Clod was going to weight 20 lbs...I dont own any crawlers yet so maybe im being conservative in my weight estimate. I was going to stick two Z3025-12 on it though...
