don't think so...WARNING doing so will straight away void your warranty and Arrma shall not value their '2 year warranty' as under their terms and conditions the ESC's must not show visible signs of wear, of show proof the ESC's have been opened or tampered with/altered in anyway.
1kg? 20% of the original weight? seems a bit optimistic to me... have you some weights for the individual parts?FACT: you can reduce the kraton weight by a full kilogram (2.2lbs)
I've done my upgrades, research, modifications, weight reductions, removal of parts to gain an advantage in speed and durability with proof, videos, data sheets all submitted to Arrma/Team Durango. If you want to etch closer to hitting 100mphr follow my "guidelines". There are more unnecessary things on the car that can be shed/modified to drop 1kg. That means in tare weight or aggragate. I.e. Downforce provided by the wing, then using this wonderful thing called mathematics, calculated how much weight has actually been shed at high speed to shave those numbers closer to 100mphr.don't think so...
Had to send in my ESC a week ago. I asked support if i can leave on the green castle connector which i am using.
answer was like (translated):
just send it in as it is. if we gonna replace the ESC we solder it to the new one, or at least we send it back to you.
Each individual Arrma 180a blx 6s esc that is sent back with the purchase receipt and date is decided upon, case to case by Arrma technicians as whether the user is at fault or dodgey manufacturing. Not everyone will get their esc back 100% read your warranty that came with your Arrma car. If you own one....
