Love that idea!!! I'll take 10 of them!

Hey guys. You guys have some sick looking cars.

I bought a XXXS sport to jump on the RCGT band wagon but I noticed that the nuts on CVDs are huge and I cant tighten the nut unless the rims are 0 offset. Any one know what spoked rims will fit?

Other than that the car is awsome. Its a used once RTR that I bought from a member and I allready installed a havoc 8.5 for now. I have a Trinity 19T and Hacker 13.5 brushless motors as well. I need to get a 17.5, 27T brushed, to meet RCGT specs right?

I allready have a theme for the body which will be an HPI AE86 that I had bought for another project but never used. Not what I wanted, but money is tight and all it needs is paint so it will do for now.

I think you can just bore out the center hole of the rim, right? 17.5 or 27T brushed is the motor to use. Post pics when ur done! Love to see them!

Thats what I was thinking. I dont have one but I was still thinking that.

Unless the nut wont fit down in the recess of the rim. Is that the problem?

I agree with you 100%!!! I am trying to pull a series like this in our local tracks here in Southeast Michigan. The only twist I was thinking about was using VTA slicks instead and 200mm bodies. Just a thought.

SVT--you have a Stang? Anyway, LMK if you need any help getting started with ur own series...we have successfully run ours here in Southern Cal for almost 3 years now. Slower=better racing IMO. I cant wait to see what u guys come up with.

I have a set of bronz Tamiya Integra rims that I want to use. I was able to press the rim in to the hex, with tons of effort. The problem is that the nut barely fits in the center of the rim so there is no way to tighten it. I meen, I can get it snug by hand but that wont take me very far!

I may just slot the top of the nut and tighten it with a flat head screw driver. It wont be the pretiest but I guess that would work.

I'll defenitly post pictures when I'm done but it will be a while since I'm only a month post op. from major surgery and still have another month to go before I start to get around better. On the bright side I'll be done by the beautiful fall days we get here in SoCal right before our blistering cold 65* days of winter
