Okay after all the glowing comments, I'll be adding the PMTs to my tire collection. I just got an e-mail, they are in the mail. Sweet!!! Looking forward to see how these help in improving my bad driving.

I'm looking forward to Corona on the 21st. What other classes are they running up there these days??

It's not that bad considering it was taken with a phone.

Yup, they need heat big time. Expect to need at least 5 hot laps or so before the start to stick well. Your first couple of laps will be almost like drifting so be easy on the throttle till they warm up.

That's the only bad thing I've got to say about the PMTs........ and well the fugly rims, but they are durable.

I don't own an electric GT yet, but I believe in the class very much. This is a great opportunity for companies in this class to show the world their R/C products in a true racing enviroment.
I don't think the electric power for this class has hit the big time yet, but it will. The format for the racing may have to be altered a bit, meaning no 45 min mains, that sort of thing.

For club racing I think it will come to dominate just like it has for 1/10 racing. It's just so much easier for everybody involved and eliminates the noise hassles many tracks have to deal with. That is a huge issue here in SoCal.

I'd love to go just to check out the racing there, but to be honest, traveling in Mexico right now isn't high on my priority list. They need to get those drug cartels under control first. I did a motorcycle ride in Baja earlier this year and went through 3 military check points in 200 miles, that kinda set the tone for me. It will be a while till I go back, which sucks cuz I like Mexico.

I put my car out in the sun so the tires would work in quick, the shade on that Sun. was too cold, plus I lit the tires up just like I had a new clutch in my gas buggy.

Ok Just got my new Gtp2e running. WOW this thing is fast! and the steering is Super responsive. I'm not sure if the pinion is meshed right with the spur. I have the stock spool 51t spur with stock pinion 14t. It seems a bit noisy when i run it. The spur seems to be in good shape after about 20 mins of runtime. So, maybe it's not supposed to be super quiet. I'm running mmm combo 2200kv. Also has anyone experimented with a 16t or 17t pinion and stock spur. If so, what advantages would that bring over the stock 14t.

These mod 1 gears tend to be a little loud just check your mesh make sure you are not to tight.

I run 2650 with 14t so if you're running 2200 I would gear it 16t. Hope that helps.

Thanks SNR, I will go to my lhs and pickup a 16t pinion. Also I would like to maybe change the ride height using the spring adjusters. I assume you just turn the threaded part of the upper shock body to put more load on the springs?

That is correct more pre-load will raise the ride height. Always check your camber after making a ride height adjustment.
