What are your thoughts regarding a (3) A mains format of 10 minutes each race to decide our GT Electric portion of our US GT Nationals at Mike's in Texas next October?

Thank you.

Triple A-mains sounds like a good way to go.

I can't wait till they make a 10000MAH 150C Race Pack. I will be first in line, albeit with $500 in hand Can't beat the warranty though.

Thats cool, but what kind of run times are GT Electrics getting on average?

Not just with big buck batteries, but on average with 4S or (2) 2S packs?

Chime in fellas, need to know.

Thanks.

Default Losi 8ight

I wanted to get into the 1/8 GT thing, so I decided to convert my old Losi 8ight E into an onroad monster.
-I added 90 wht shock oil all around
-purchased the L8 towers, body mount, front bumper, and lower springs.
-put in a monster 2450kv combo
-front losi 8ight shocks all around

The problem im having is, the suspension is still too cushy like an off roader. WTF? Has anyone converted their's? Tips? What can I do to stiffen things up a bit to carve corners better? Suggestions?

For whatever reason. 4s is better than 2 2s.

I get around 20 minutes with 5000mah running a 2650kv and 2 speed, mechanical brakes. At Mike's in Houston.

Mostly its probably the springs that is the problem. OffRoad springs are just way to soft. I suggest getting a full set of GT shocks and springs. This will stiffen things up.

Maybe this question has been asked and answered before, has Kyosho released a brushless version of Inferno GT2 (1/8 touring cars) series?

Thanks.
