View Full Version : Is lighter weight an advantage in flexis?

Is it fair to say that any weight above the centre of gravity in a flexi is bad weight? If so, then can we assume that axles should be cut to their minimum serviceable length and we should run the biggest hub (ie lightest) wheels we can find? Ditto for the thinnest bodies with the least paint?

You are correct. Anytimr you can get you body lighter and axles shorter is better. Bigger hub is normally heavier but faster because of less rubber. Magniesum hub will be faster than aluminum.
