I am starting to put my Baja on a diet, and have a chassis question. Should i go with the Scorpion alloy chassis, that has been milled out to lighten it. The other option is, Pro Line has a carbon chassis that is coming out very soon. Which one is lighter? Will the carbon chassis hold up?

Here you go! All the info you will need.

Approx weights

Stock rtr - 708g
SS - 711
Scorpion -530
CF Chassis - varies 290-330g

Now there is a carbon chassi maker named swisslow across the pond that makes a 150G chassi that looks good also. Will the CF hold up over a alloy one? They say they will but would you risk a 4-500 dollar chassi so you can jump and look cool? I wouldnt and if thats what you do.. I say stick with Scorpions 530 LW alloy.
