Finally a dry and sunny day without rain and snow. Time for first test... rear downforce is sick, couldn't get the car in powerslide in high speeds, even that 6S lipos are in use.

So it is 325 mm. Sorry about that.

Does anybody know if there is a Porsche body with 360 mm wheelbase ?

We'll be running our GT8s at Heritage RC Park in Chula Vista (San Diego). If anyone is down in the area come out and check it out. Here's a video the track layout we'll be using today for practice and on March 15. Here's a video of the track.

hi GT8e noob here. I have a tekno sc that I would like to try onroad with. So can I just get a GT shell mount it, slap a set of onroad tires and go or will I need to do anything else? e.g. shorter shocks, different shock towers etc...

Thanks.
