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!

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...
