So I bought this Team Built GT and slowly got a few upgrades for it and now since my onroad race season is a bit dead for the local tracks do to issues, I'd like to run something in a race instead of just practice!
Anyway, I have it setup right now for SG and slide carb. Yes, a SG shaft in a GT. How did it do it? Simple, install same size bearings, but ones that fit over an SG shaft. I had the MT12 in there with the 4shoe clutch and surely that was horrible as I knew the car should be faster perhaps with the MIP clutch (never ran). In stock the LHS has a RB X12 with rotary carb and std crank. I really dislike std cranks. It's for $179 and may get a discount on being that it's old, though there is a possibility for a .12cvr slide carb sg shaft or better yet, an RB C12. With the whole SG SC talk you can tell I mainly run onroad, but I am no beginner to offroad racing...so don't rant on about too much power in an ST.
There's locals running Sirios and more in their losi trucks which are now dominating the tracks popularity wise. I like the GT being that it's easy to work on and the FIRST real RC vehicle I saw upclose and ran. Anyway, what would you guys go for?
