Rick - I do not get the maybe points you raise. Whilst 1g maybe not seem a vast amount as a percentage of a slot car let's say is 1.5% roughly. Weight in the drive train has effect of adding to the flywheel effect and therefore directly influences the acceleration and braking performance. Digging through Marco's performance parts from the excellent magnesium wheels, gears, interiors etc saves a huge %.

Rubbishing it from a position of ignorance is foolish.

You could
be right about the tyres. I remember watching a well known international racer run through setting a car up for a race in the UK. A tyre box was brought out all of the same compound and wheel, each pair 0.1mm different in diameter. Everything was considered.
