Sorry to post this again but these foams piss me off, can you buy one piece foams for these things or is there something I'm missing? I even took them down to my LHS and he handed them back lol.

Can someone walk me through it?

Ps. HELP
Try these molded insert 81098 from Ofna they work great with the slicks and tread tires.

Thanks for that snrscion, they do look a lower profile foam on the ofna site?, they do fit in the gtp2 tires in the kit???

Anyway just ordered some from the LHS hope they make it easier....

Thanks again

Time Travel.....


The caps in the RX8 are rather short and can't dissipate as much heat as a taller cap.
Ripple current is reduced.
Safer to run cheaper packs(high resistance lipo's).
Better braking.
Cooler running ESC.
The ability to run a 2.5T motor on more than 2S in 1/10. I used 3s A123 with a 2.5T motor in a CRT.5.
I can run a 4000KV 1/8 scale motor on 4s or 4s2p A123 for dragracing my other GTP.
Less stress on ESC during braking when running at max Voltage.
I also have 2 TVS installed to clamp the voltage down during braking when running at the ESC voltage limit.

I still have 2 of the first generation RX8 running like a champ.

The MMM has taller caps installed and can handle some serious power. But the Tekin is so much smoother to race with.

This is a newbie question as I've never owned a touring car before!, but if these cars are based on a 1/8 buggy why don't they have a centre diff, what are the advantages of the spool for on road vs the diff, wouldn't the diff give some more adjustability? Or is it not needed?

Could someone explain this to me?

Cheers....

It' simple. Not having a diff brings the cost down of the kit. It is in fact advantageous to have a center diff in Low Traction Situations.

For onroad, the center diff is not necessary. The added rotational weight plus the drag from diff gears actually will hurt the performance of the drivetrain. The basic premise is that onroad has way more traction than that of offroad so the need for a center diff is not necessary.

Spools are usually used on the front. A spool / solid axle has no diff action when going through turns. It is positraction all the way. People have found that using a front spool on high traction surfaces provide more control in terms of throttle and brake versus a diff. If you look at what most of the fast guys are running on their 1/10th electric TCs they're mostly running a spool up front.

YR4 I think you misunderstood his ? because I haven't seen any (everyone correct me if I'm wrong) front spools for 1/8 buggies.

Jpm1 in this application Charlie B's answer is correct!!!

I was just curious about the no center diff option?, I'll only be bashing and light track work so I won't need the front spool I think......


I'd buy that gpt2, cause mine still hasn't arrived, it's been sitting in LA since the 25th!, why does nitrohouse use USPS, it will be the last time I buy from them unless they can send through ups..... Grrrrr
