Default HPI Carbon Graphite Chassis for the 5B worth the money ?

hello, does anybody have the carbon chassis for the 5b,s from HPI, it looks great , not sure how well it will stand up to the abuse the heavy 5b,s put on them, and how much lighter it is over the aluminum stock chassis, seems like any weight saver hop up would help, thanks mike:ponder:

Have you checked the scorpion lightweight chassis its almost 200 g lighter??? I am not a fan of Carbon chassis for the Baja. Only used it on my 1/8 race buggy, just because carbon fiber will break under high shock and the way we drive our bajas or at least i drive its prone to shocks :)
