SNR was giving me some pointers and I made a few quick changes, some 2 steps back, 1 step forward..... it will get there.

I had no problems with speed or run time running a pair of 2S lipos. SNR didn't have anything on me down the long straight but he walked right around me through the infield.

I'm happy with the power train now to focus on chassis setup.

It will happen. You've got way more track time with these cars than the rest of us, we'll get 'em dialed.

Don't forget Eric beat you last time at Corona..... and there's another Cunamay that just switched to an identical Losi ride, double trouble. Charlie hasn't even done any chassis setup yet so he'll be breathing down your neck also. Omar's still getting his DM1-S sorted and I think Steve D will be driving a GTP2e next time out. I heard Dan A mumbling about converting his Ofna buggy over also.......

There will be a posse of us chasing you down, better clean your rear view mirrors good.

Sorry, Ofna calls it a knuckle. Part# 40718, just ordered a couple pairs today. If you don't have aluminum hinge pin holders, I'd highly recommend one at least for the front. Unfortunately the stock plastic one comes as part of a whole tree #40719 so you get a bunch of extra stuff. I'd highly recommend the aluminum ones instead.

And don't forget the serrated wheel nuts (#10994), they are a must IMO.

I've got a 1258TG in one of my TC's and it's great. Fast, and plenty of torque, would work great in an onroad GT.
Ordered some uprights and a new rear bumper. Mine cracked when Mike stalled and I T-boned him and then got run under.

Don't worry Steve....race day at corona will require a lot more effort.

Team Nitronic....Me, Eric, Omar, Steve and Dan will all be GT8 Ready. Woohoo!!!

Don't forget the wheel decals...Make a bunch. Bet you'd make a killing as the PMT wheels are FUGLY.

Corona is gonna be a blast! Hopefully all the peeps that have posted about getting in on this will be able to join us to race.

Default WHEEL DECALS

I hate the look of the PMT wheels. Tires are great, but the PMT logo on the dish is killing me. Ruins the look of the GT that we're trying to achieve.....but wait....



$10 for a high quality decal of any of the 4 wheels posted.

Looking forward to it, I like a good clean race. It look really bad on our class when everyone is dropping off like flies.

That track is simply world class awesome!!! We need something like that here in SoCal for sure. I still can't understand with so many RC companies located here we still don't have a world class on-road track.

I think those rim stickers are a great idea. I also HATE the look of dished rims. At least the Sweeps are available with a nice looking spoked rim.
