A couple of us out here in the Midwest would like to convert some Losi L8ight models to GT8-e....

Can someone help by giving us a decent, basic set up??? We need pretty much start to finish as we're former dirt oval racers lookin' to 'do the right thing' and turn BOTH directions!

Thanks in advance

Thanks - that's way close to where I was thinking but it's always nice to have confirmation!

Default AUDI R8 LMS

Well guys, looks like the wait is over, we finally have a new body by Kyosho for our GT8s.. check it out.. Audi R8 LMS

http://kyosho.com/eng/products/rc/de...duct_id=108571

Only draw back is.. most of us are running 325 mm wheels base and this is going to be for the 360 mm wheel base..

Tell you what though.. if they do end up releasing more new bodies.. like a Ferrari 458 or 599, Porsche 911 GT3 RS or 918 Spyder..

I will have to make myself a new chassis that is 360 mm..

Thanks for sharing the video. Looks like so much fun! I wish we could consistently get that amount of participation for our GT8 Races.

What are the typical setups most are running? Car brand? Tires? Diff oil weight, electronics etc.? Thanks!!

Wow! Now that's a really nice track! It looks like our CAL Raceway track here in southern california on steroids! I would really like to have a track like that to race on!
What batteries were used to last 9+ minutes?

Fantastic Romuald.. we have much to learn from you French.. great to see a variety of bodies running in the race, makes it fun to watch.
