    Turn it into a Slayer getting it down to about 8 lbs. Turning radius is about Half of the Revo.

    Aluminum screws, titanium pillow balls, titanium u-joints, carbon hinge pins, aluminum or carbon push rods, remove unnecessary plastic. I saved over a pound so far on my Revo.

    yah priced out what you've done a little bit. Would be easier to just drink beer and not worry or buy a second one. Should not have sold that roller I had.

    Thankx
