Almost all 1/8th buggy race tires are low profile. Just pick the one that has an appropriate tread for your application.

Sorry, I typed that wrong, I meant to find a tire with a lower tread, not lower profile.

Some AKA cityblocks or something like that would probably work for my area perfect considering its tight packed and pretty dusty dirt. I think I am gonna give this a shot.

Kyosho bodies will fit, but only the GT1 bodies. I think they make the BMW body that fits on this car.

Actually I think all the Kyosho bodies will fit. The rear shock tower is low so there should be no clearance issues. This is unless there is a difference in wheelbase from the Kyosho bodies which I doubt.

I've ran 10s A123 in the GTP as well. Talk about an Onroad Monster.

This is the Dragrace setup. It's either a Hacker or Plettenberg motor. About 2.5 seconds in 132ft.

Steve and Dave are running a 2650kv. Im running a 2200kv. Not sure what Jai and the others are running. It's pretty much open for now. At Corona and Surf City, you can really open them up so there is no need to limit the motors. Definitely SUPER FUN!
