I wanna run 2x 2s lipos to make a 4s. What is that called? Series or parallel? Also can someone link a picture of what the connector would look like so I can make one?

Thanks.

is that with STOCK spur... If u don't mind me asking? Or did u custom fit a smaller spur in the center? Like I know RCMonster also does by honing down the center mount to fit a smaller spur like a JATO or something...

Those battery packs don't look like they have high capacity, 3000mah I'm thinking. When you run in series, you're doubling the voltage but capacity remains the same. If you use all four packs (if they fit in the car), then you can do 2 packs in parallel (make two of these) and join them in series. Afterward, you will have 6000mah for capacity and still doubling the voltage.

yes, stock spur (51t). I'd love to know more about the Jato spur option ? That would open up with lots more options. Where do I get this info ?

Well, fire away... at some point you'll run out of bullets. Hopefully I've dodged them all.

So I just took my GTP2E out for it's maiden run. Totally awesome is all I can say, even with just a 2 cell. Can't wait to race it with a few other 1/8 scale cars using a 4 cell.

Two questions though,

1. How much play do you guys have in your front drive shaft? Mine seems almost too short. It moves a good half inch forward and backward like they installed a driveshaft of the wrong size. The rear one is fine and only moves a fraction of an inch. This is creating a lot of drivetrain noise. Is it possible they installed the wrong size?

2. My wheelnuts seem to loosen very easily. Will notching the wheelnuts remedy this?

I think I run 2x rear drive shafts ,I havent tried the front cv the sell which is from a mugen x6?.
They sell the locking style wheel nuts, I got some off ebay for $4.00 , so to me it wasnt worth notching them, if you do notch them you may want to notch them so that the pattern is oppsite of the the wheel spinning?

2 things.


1. anyone find a way to get rid of the steering slop? i swear. i have another ofna SCT and that has a similar slop. i can twist each front tire so it can go like +/- 2 degrees each way...

2. the front upper arms. they have those little clips to adjust caster. but on mine, there is just a tiny gap, maybe like 1/16" so that the arm can slide back and forth... i thought about buying like a thin enough washer, or maybe a set of those clips... but at $6 for a set of those... sigh...
