Not the ones on the IGT series, but the IGT2 are bigger than the IGT1. Ive heard that you can use the bigger bore OFNA shocks.

I stand corrected then. Was told the IGT1 had longer/lighter shock springs and that the IGT2's were one of the upgrades from the IGT1. In either case, definately not big bore but they do handle the car

Nearly finished an ofna ravager brushless rally conversion. I have a 1/8 impreza body on the way from Germany to finish it off. My question is, what is the best way to go for body mounts? Does anybody make "generic" adjustable mounts that I can attach to the shock towers?

I just ordered the Losi L8 oval springs to see if they will fit my big bore Tamiya 801 shocks.

What brand car are you converting?

Hey gang,

I just bought a used DM-1(non spec version) and want to convert it to electric. I'd like to keep the chassis, and perhaps the two speed setup, although the 2 speed could be dumped if necesssary. I'd like to just add a motor mount and battery tray if possible. Has anyone done this ? I know that Nitrohouse has the conversion kit, but that involves going to a new, shorter chassis and I couldn't use my new body I just painted .

Another part of the equation is that I'd like to run a clutch as well. If anyone has a suggestion , I'd appreciate your input.

What time do you guys race in Corona on Sunday?

Clay

It going to be a lot of work and some custom stuff. It better you buy the conversion but don't use the chassis. You can use the motor mount, clutch system and hardware for that 3 channel for brakes and battery holder. It not easy but can be done.
