Think it depends on how much you want to spend.. Going to the full GT car is not worth the cost.. Might as well by the kit new as I recall its about $125 difference.

Otherwise start with the shock towers, bumper, and body mounts then go from there on how you want it to handle.

Starting September 1st 2013
We’re starting our new Ipanema “Top-Speed Club” promotion.


Rules are basically very simple:

Post your new Top-Speed video runs on YouTube, using your Warrior body.
The Top 5 fastest runners for the month of September win another Warrior body for free!

The video will have to be continuous, no breaks or edits and show top speeds.
GPS or Radar is fine and it has to be 2 Top Speed back to back passes.
That’s it!

If you run the Warrior body and want another one “on the house”, get your Warriors ready for September’s “Top Speed Club” fun!

More contest information & details will be available on the website.

I just converted my RC8.2e to a GT, with the protofrom PF8 body and GRP tires, LRP 2200kv with IX8, REEDY 3700 4s but getting the 5500 4S. Could I get a starting point on the diffs and shocks. All suggestions welcome.

diffs are standard buggy. Pinion is 23T Spur is 46T, 2750 Kv on 4S
It's too fast for the circuit like this, I am doing mostly parkinglot and road racing/bashing. I will be trying it soon on a track though with a smaller pinion obviously.

Well I rebuilt all the diffs, I put 100k in front and center diffs and 5k in the rear diff. Rebuilt the front and rear shocks, with 50 in front and 47.5 in rear.

If you’ve never raced a GT car with a Porsche body, you’ll learn a lot about R/C aerodynamic body design looks vs function, real quick.

Ofna sold a Porsche body for a few years, there’s gotta still be some floating around, try it on the race track, then you’ll learn what the rest of us “old timers” learned about the Porsche bodies too.

Good Luck!

Thanks, might have to work on setup a bit, but should be close. I think I am also geared a bit tall for the track but will have to try it to see. I'm getting older and I need bright colors...LOL
