You don't really need the spur to get to 50-6omph. You can get the with just a pinion change . Just instal anywhere from 18-23T pinion and you will be up there.

You also shouldn't have to remove servo to install motor

Thank you. I ordered a 21 tooth pinion and see how it performs. For the motor, I have room to install the top screw into the motor, but the bottom screw is blocked from the receiver box, sorry, I said servo, but the servo box is in the way. It's no big deal I can remove the servo box but just seems kinda inefficient to do that.

Got the OFNA tires mounted up today with two different types of Sweep inserts. Gonna give them a try here see what happens.
Put the single strip on the rear. And the closed cell foam on the front.
Hopefully the weather holds tomorrow and ill get out and give these a tear.

Sweet, I usually just paint my bodies two colors so it doesn't get too complicated. I've been waiting for my radio and batteries to finalize my build. Darn I hate waiting, can't wait to finally start playing with this thing

I do not have a patience it seems to wait an appropriate amount of time between coats. I can screw up a single color haha.
He enjoys painting and is trying to get his name out locally as a painter so im more than willing to help him out.
Costs me material for his work. I keep telling him he needs to do a logo in the paint or a decal, but that hasn't happened yet.

It kinda sucks that there isn't more GTP Class onroad racing. It's all 1/8th onroad Mugen/Serpent, but these cars we have are awesome. I would love to start or be part of a GTP class onroad league. Southern Cali area

I wouldn't know where to begin. Perhaps a few of us can chime in and get something started somewhere. We would need a place to race!

Where can we take our cars to a track in Southern California? Seems like all the onroad tracks are closing or have closed. Man, we need to get a track like they have in Europe!
