Let’s see who’s put on the most weight on! Post a pic of your micro rig and it’s weight.

I’m at 484 grams total. 25g more up front than in back.

Here's my Gladiator fresh out of the box.



Here it is with a bunch of brass and aluminum thrown at it. Still a few more mods coming.
That's 113 grams added so far....almost half of it's original weight. Porky for sure!!

It adds up quick! Nice looking Jeep BTW! I like the new wheels.

Im curious to see how many here have some super heavy weights. Ive seen mention of 1000 gram SCX's. But I want to see one!

Yes it does, and that would be insane.

I’m at 381g in one of my c10’s w/o battery and the weight in the axle, links, wheels and trans with a 050. My esc and receiver are stripped.

Here's my TRX4M Bronco fresh out of the box.



As it sits now with a bunch of steel, brass and aluminum upgrades. I took the brass steering knuckles off and I'm considering steel drive shafts. I'll post up the new weight if I make those changes.

That's 150 gram weight gain. Roughly 30% of the trucks original weight.
