    Do I need to run sway bars in both front and rear?
    Is this gonna be your basher/drag racer? If yes, I would say no.

    If you're gonna race it on a track, I would suggest running it with and without them. Decide afterwards.
  • Just going to be running in parking lots and streets, no drag racing though. Wish I could race, if I ever move somewhere close to a track I definitely would.

    I will leave them off for now then.
  • Today the body showed up. It's the discontinued Inferno GT BMW M3 body. The pre-drilled body mount holes lined up, I just need to do a few adjustments to get the body to sit perfectly.

    Eventually I am going to get one of the Deltaplastik bodies from Bill and try my hand and painting, but when I saw this body I had to have it.

    WOW, couldn't have any better news than that. My two favorite shops!

    So will you mainly be carrying the motor mounts and battery trays for the Ofna and Kyosho vehicles? What about Slipperential parts?

    Yep, Kyosho and OFNA parts as well as the 2-speed adapter, pinion gears, and the Slipperential kits and replacement parts.
  • Today I got a bunch of alloy M3 nylock nuts (red anodized) for my car. Strictly for appearance, not really concerned with the weight.

    My question is, do you think these will be strong enough compared to the steel ones? I basically swapped out all of them except for the ones on the hingepins and chassis braces. All the M4 nuts are also still steel.

    wow ....this place is like ten minutes from my house..........
    my thought on the alloy nuts is alloy will heat up faster possibly expand faster than steel .......

    Sunday is gonna be awesome! Team Nitronic will have 5 GT8's ready to race. Can't wait to run with everybody again. This class is so much fun.
  • Cant wait to run my GTP2e this Saturday My wife (For Valentines Day) got me a little art for the new Ofna from SNR Graphite and I must say it is a perfect fit and looks awsome!!! Plan on getting the shock towers next. Thanks Steve for the ultra fast shipping and a quality product!!!

    I called out four others from San Diego to represent in GT8! That's right! That makes 5 of us if all goes well. We'll just have to organize and come up with a team name and get ready for battle!

    Outstanding bro! Your 5, plus our 5, plus OFNA guys, Tony P + ???? Should be a great day for sure.

    I'm thinking 5 per heat might be a good idea as it can get pretty crazy out there.

    I am curious to know how you plug that deans into that traxxas plug.

    Great looking rig though!

    It actually looks like one of those multi-style plugs that come with Venom lipo batts which includes deans style.
