Ok..im well rested and ready to post! lol
BIG THANKYOU to Dave from Ofna with help for my car. You da man!
Thankyou to Steve and Dave for supporting this class and helping everyon get their cars up and running. It was REALLY cool to see so many RC8's out there and all you could hear on the driver's stand was laughing and a good time. now THAT is how it should be at the track, everyone having a great time, even helping everyone out. I even finally got to meet Raman after years of back and forth RCTECH talk! lol All in all, i think we are to a GREAT start with the GT8's and we can have even bigger turn outs once we get race dats established at different tracks! The next race dates for GT8 will be at Surf City. Too bad we didn't get to have a group picture this weekend, but i think for Surf City we definitely should. I will take pics of driver's as well and put some sorta BIO on them on the OC Circuit site with driver's and their GT8's. So if everyone can agree to run November 7th at Surf City in Huntington Beach, that would be awesome! Also, Nov. 21st will be Corona's last race of the year, might be another good turnout for everyone. GT8's are here to STAY!!!! Im gonna start working on my suspension this week. got work to do!

Which plates are these? What's the original part number so I can see what it replaces.

40719 Arm Holder. Steve mentioned they break, and so did Jerry. Just trying to find out what aluminum ones are available.

I had talked with Steve at SNR about making some Graphite versions, I also think Kingheads makes some nice machined alloy parts and another shop on the east coast /tampa area. I am at a loss to what the shop name is.

I think the part you are referring to is the lower arm pin holder. They do break, I broke mine last Sunday.

Here's an aluminum one from MaxVelocity



There may be other suppliers also, not sure.

It's not a part shape that lends itself to CF very well.

Yes, Jerry did mention this to me last week. I actually ordered it last night from MaxVelocity. I purchased 2 for the front. I should have gotten 4 but I thought that might be overkill but at least my DM-1 would be more solid. Especially the way I drive.

I think it fits the rear also so you can use the other one in the rear if you want. I can't see breaking one of these. If you break it you've bent the chassis for sure. I've found the aluminum on chassis is a bit soft.

I looked back and saw there were several references and questions as to whether or not anybody out here on the west coast has been able to try the Sweep tires/rims. This is sort of an update, anybody????

They look awesome and the other sweep products are excellent. They indicated the rims were made from "indestructible virgin grade DuPont nylon", sounds good and are offered in this style or dished in black, white, or green. I think they also offer treaded or slick.

I think the EXP version would be perfect for Corona or other parking lot surfaces. The Sweep website lists the tires available unmounted also if you want to use different rims.

I can make it like the Tekno but I think the stock version of the chassis is better and use the Ofna motor mount 41125.

Charlie was running sweeps, but not sure which ones, I had the EXP 45's and they worked ok, I think it was too cold for them though and with the moisture the pmt 20's probably would've been a better choice. Except I don't have anything else.

I think Charlie ran the Sweep on Sunday and he said it was too loose he could not put the power down.
