Although, in colder weather, they do pretty well. In the Nitro cars the softer shore compounds still work as it's not as easy to overheat them.

Cheers!

Our new 60 & 65 shore rubber should be the hot ticket for road race E cars on the tracks during the warmer summer months.

Drag race E cars are rockin' on our 45 & 50 shores during the day and 40 & 45's for cooler night racing temps.

Thanks and good luck fellas!

Being a Drag car, you may want to shim the differentials. And run the hardened steel bevel gears. Electric drag cars put a lot of load on the drivetrain at take off.

Hey JSpeed!
I'm from Brazil and running on sintec's 45, very nice grip for me.
The pictures from the sintec webpage and ipanema's are the same, is it the same tire/wheel?
Thanks

You mean shim the spider gears? What are the hardened steel bevel gears?

rpompeu,

Yes, we are one in the same.
Warrior bodies are made here in America and available in Brasil too.





Do you race with these guys there?

The "ring" gear is the gear that is attached to the diff housing with the spider gears, the "pinoin" gear drives the ring gear, if your having ring and pinion issues you need to shim the pinion and tighten the mess to the ring gear,also running the hardened ring gear will help -OFN31010,I suggest you replace the the pinion gear too, you might have cracks that you cant see -OFN30130
I bought a shim kit from rcmart, I'll try to find the packaging

Nice to know JSpeed!
No, I don't race with this guys. They probably race in São Paulo where GT racing is becoming more popular, I live in Brasilia (Brasil's capital) and I'm the only GT on our track

The bevel gear is the ring gear. You may want to check side play at the ring gear (bevel gear) also in the pinion gear. Like a 1:1 car.

If you are going through spider gears you may want to replace the diff case.

Today I raced my GTP2e with Sweep 50 slicks for the first time. I have to say, they really hook up great. Plus, after a day of racing they are just barely scrubbed in so they should last a long time.

We race on a parking lot track that we clean with leaf blowers then mist with Mountain Dew. Today it was sunny and about 75. After a qualifier the tire temps were around 110F. That seemed to be just right for the 50's.

A few of us have tried the Ipanemas - For our track the Sweeps handle and wear better.

Comments?

I'm working on a mount for revo 3.3 spurs, this will all you to run a lower ratio center spool, I am not a nor represnt any shop/manufactuer other then some dude with some machine tools and a love of the gtp!
If your running a diff , the inferno one is supposed to be a drop in , and they have 2 spurs for that

I think I might be able to mod a Mosnter Gt spur to fit on the center diff, but dont think I will be able to get to the same size as the kyosho, as the center diff uses the spur to seal the case
