How about a shortened "radio tray" (really just a steering servo mount) for a DM1-S running BL power?
Dan, SNRSCION made my front and rear carbon towers that you saw.

Can you work from a DXF or other CAD file?

Are the parts CNC cut or hand cut?

The RX8 combo came in today. I think I'll be BL by Sunday but will have to run a pair of 2S Lipos, the 4S didn't make it...... and they were supposed to be coming from a CA warehouse, hmmm.

Oh well nope, I'll be running Nitro power this Sunday.

I got knee deep into it and there was too much engineering to do. I was hoping the motor mount I bought would drop in, nope.... no such luck, had to start from scratch and design my own....... with still more to do and I want to do it right the first time, I decided to just put the Nitro power back in.

I'll be BL by the Nov. race for sure.

That was a pretty good video. It looks like a pretty fast race. I'm looking forward to making it to next month's race. It looks like the weather was not even a factor.

YES!!! We finally had good showing for the 1/8GT class in both Electric and Nitro power in SoCal, Wahoo!!!.

But, I can assure you by the next race there will be one less Nitro powered car and one more electric powered car. There's no doubt BL power makes these cars rock and is way less hassle to race. Good bye starter box, fuel, igniter, flame outs...... hello "plug and play". Not only are the BL cars much much easier to race they are stupid fast and electric braking is hands down better than mechanical brakes on cars this size.

LOL, and it was the first time Eric put that car on a race track. His converted Losi is pretty awesome.

What was cool is we had a mix of chassis, GTP2e, DM1-S, Converted Losi, Converted Tamiya, and maybe a couple others I didn't know about.

These cars were turning in lap times competitive with the faster 1/10 cars.

So in your opinioin you'd choose electric braking/motor over mechanical brakes? Is it because of the drag brake feature you get with electric braking/motor? I'm not judging, just curiously asking since I'm new to the GT8stuff myself.

I've been trying to incorporate a little mixing of mechanical with motor brakes just to keep the drag brake in place. Now you are aware that the mechanical brakes do reduce your motor temps?
