    First off, why do you think your car body is to heavy? Secondly, what car do you have, cause 90% of Lexan bodies are the exact same, just made by differnt companies. Also, depending on what body you buy the weight could be signiffigantly differnt (IE a smaller NSX, vs a more bulky with a spoiler Stratus.)

    y do i think my body is to heavy because when i took it off it seems to go faster on my dyno, but when i put it on my dyno with the body on its goes alot slower.

    Have you looked to see if you were getting any wheel rub on the body?

    What kid of body are you using now?

    As stated before most of the bodies weigh close to the same. :?

    Most of the time I use HPI bodies, but for drifting I went out and got a yokomo drift body.
