This is a really cool new thread, will be helpful to grow the GT Electric class.

Looking forward to building one to race with too. :)

For anyone thats interested in racing their "GTE" car at a "GT ONLY" event, this might be the race for you.

September 3rd, 4th and 5th 2010, at Leisure Hours Raceway, Joliet Il.

Hope to see many "GTE" cars at the race!

my speedo hasnt gone above 160 & and motor has been temped 190 or better before i switched clutch springs to 0.7mm tekno quick engagement will little slippage helped out some either its heavy car or i need to run 5s exclusively higher voltage less amp draw i dont think my gear combo is the culprite

chumanji 06-28-2010 02:42 AM

Can the tekno conversion for the DM-1 be run as a direct drive instead of using the clutch? Would long shank pinion needed or can the motor mount be moved forward...
