@Poynt - having a die set I can totally make this Delrin barrel adjuster. I do quite fancy the polished one I have at the moment but if I need to shave some more weight I will make one.

@4Ibanez - Removing the paint and clear coat will save me at least 40 grams so sub 600 will be pretty easy to hit without getting too crazy. Will start another thread soon.

@Klaster1 - I did finish the rear derailleur. Making the titanium return spring was a very difficult. I was going to display the finished rear derailleur on the Yonex Carbonex build I was planning on doing. I still have to fly to Japan and pick it up from my wife's brother's house. I'll post final pics once I get that thread going....some day. But I ended at 85 grams. If I put the rear derailleur on my wife's bike she will damage it because she cross chains, shifts climbing up hills, ect.

Awesome, can't wait to hear more about Yonex build, your threads are always full of super detailed and useful info. What method your ended up with to fix cage pins in place? C-clips, aluminium sleeves?

@Klaster1 - I was unable to use cclips on the carbon pins because I did not have anything sharp enough to cut small grooves in the carbon. The force of the clip would almost break the carbon because my grooves were not precise enough. I used a little glue and pressed the pins in. The aluminum caps made from the aluminum rivets I made sure were slightly larger in diameter than the hole I needed to press them into.... so it worked out well.
