X or xl cf tvp's that is the question ,,, according to the weight of the  H.K. cf tvps i think the x's are lighter but wont know till i get them ,,,, do i go with shorter truck x  or longer xl ,,, i think the xl will be more stable at such a light weight ,, any input,,,,,,,,,,

wow the ones i have off the new truck one weighs 54 grms but if both sides are the same thats a 52 grm saving is that enough saving  for stability ? i have always liked the way the xl length handled  i think the xl is the way to go ?

What all have you taken off the truck, in terms of saving weight and what was your starting weight?

Hey sunshine, this may be a long shot but could we get a shot of the truck on the scale reading grams?

I'm wondering how much the engine mods will help. Looking at AB Mods Dino graphs, the modded engines make most of their power increase from low to top rpm.. You guys aren't drag racing. Nobody is measuring how quick it gets to top mph. iMO that's just as important. Again just suing Adams graphs, it doesn't look like much rpm is gained. 34k is 34k. I'd like to see how your stocker does next to the modded motors b,est pass.
