Id love to pick one up for mine.. Problem is, it will be costly.. Along with the body, I'd have to make a custom 360 mm chassis for my TRF801

Hey guys!

Haven't posted for awhile. Still been playing with my Jammin X2 GT conversion, wrenching on it, tuning the setup and all that stuff.

Picked up some Sweep tires to try out. Also going to throw a spool in the center and see how that works. It is an RC-Monster single-speed adapter and Delrin spur, put together with Ofna shaft and outdrives. Also picked up the new style RC-Monster motor mount. Really easy to set gear mesh and pinion changes.

That Audi is really slick! Once my carbon buggy chassis is dead I think I'll get a Jammin X2 CRT chassis to convert to the 360mm wheelbase. Or better yet, get a carbon CRT chassis made.

Raman, couldn't you use the Tamiya truggy chassis? Same as with my Jammin, would need new center driveshafts, chassis braces, few other things but the front/rear ends and center diff should bolt right up the same between buggy and truggy?

Saw the Audi in person, definitely the best so far! As anyone found a part # for the Audi though? It's no where to be found (the part#, much less somewhere that has the body).

Only a handful of truggies are 360mm wheelbase. Modern truggies are 375mm wheelbase. The Tamiya definitely is, and I believe a Jammin X2 CRT is as well. The Jammin CRT X1X or X1, however I believe is 360mm.

That would make 3 I know of, the older Kyosho ST's obviously, the Mugen MBX5T (what I used), and the Jammin CRT X1X (I believe).

Correct, initially my intention was to make my 801 into a long wheel base.. I soon found out the 801 was too long..

I'm pretty sure you can add the Losi 8t 1.0 chassis to that list as well.

Default GT8 Turn out at Corona

Nice turn out of GT8s at Hobby Town Corona. Thank you to Charlie for a great event as always.

Too bad I couldn't join you guys in the final, my battery dumped midway through the first two heats. Time for a new one.. OUCH!

Hi!

This is my EB4 S2 Pro converted.



I have 10000 rear diff and 100000 front diff and solid center (I have another diff for 500000 center and two torsens also if they can be used in GT).
I have xray 808 shocks on it with 1000 oil.
PMT's 20 front and 10 rear.
Hobbywing 2250kv on 4s.

Can someone give me an advice for a good starting point setup?
The car is not holding corners as the front pushes the car inner and the back completes the spinner...

Regards!

Audi R8 looks awesome. Will that fit on a RC8 Chassis? Car is done, but body is pending.
