Rear shocks are much to long to fit on the front and maintain your ride height low enough.

Just turn the bottom shock holder out 2-3mm is all that is needed to make the stiffer dm-1 springs easier to install.

I was able to get DM-1 front and rear springs at my LHS today. The front springs fit, the GTP 2-E front shocks, just fine. You have to adjust the nut 2-3mm like you said. The DM-1 rear springs are too short to fit the shock bodies on the GTP 2-e. The adjustment nut will not adjust anymore and you have to much play in the spring.

Any other ideas?

I can't see needing to boost, those rigs are damn fast already as it is. Also, if you using a RX8 ESC, there is no boost option, only timing.

Tekin RX8 2250Kv
Hitec HS-7945TH or KO Propo RSX
RC Monster Mod 1 pinion
Sweep EXP - I got the preglued on 6ix packs and they are amazing.


I have been running this with a Reedy #626 4S 5500Mah 65C, and I also have a Thunder Power G6 6S 3850Mah (Only for a Top Speed run) that I am waiting to try once I get the Eagle Tree V4 150A logger and install it.

I heard guys racing with a 1900Kv on 5S so look at that too. Haven't heard a lot from guys with the 2650Kv motor, but I've been out of the loop for some time.

What diff weights are you all running? How long does it take you to change per each diff?

I have a DM-1 Spec Tekno converted
Tekin 2250kv RX8; geared 16/48 (center diff)
I'm using Futaba S9156, slightly overkill but better safe than sorry.
