Thanks! I'm still trying to decide if this is the chassis for me. I like the price of it and I'm strictly a basher, we have no 1/8 on road racing here

I just like building

Hi guys,

I have read through the entire forum and I see little to no information on racing. Does anyone actually race this car? If so what are your setups please. diff and shock fluids and such.
I am trying to get into on road racing and the track i will be at is medium to large with medium to high grip.

The back end of this car seems to slide out a lot anything to help with this?
Over the winter I put rear hub extenders +2mm and the SNR stand up shock tower.

Darksidems shock towers for frobt and rear $28 each, gear box shim kit raises 2mm $19, mugen aluminum pivot balls $40, extra set of front shocks for rear $25 on ebay currently, lightweight outdrives. Contact grenade10 he can allocate everything for you. I hope this helps friend.

Thanks G, isn't all that stuff for the nitro version? I have the electric.

Just checking bc that is how it is listed on the website (not easy to find).

Anyone still carting these around? Not much chatter on them lately.

Is there a good parts source still?

So I have a 1:7 DM-1, and though I prefer nitro, I absolutely HATE the clutch bell on the DM-1.. So, I'm considering a brushless conversion. I have a Ripper 2000 motor and HW 150 ESC laying around. What else do I need for a simple, cheap, basic conversion? Is it all doable with readily available parts? Thanks..

Maybe someone can shed more light, but I know RC monster has a brushless conversion plate that replaces the rear center diff mount (like many other motor mount conversions). Now I think the 1/7 DM-1 might be slightly different than the 1:8 electric dedicated, but the mount should work fine.

On this topic, what are the advantages and disadvantages to both DM-1's compared to the GTP2E? Both are about $200 for the kit version, but the 1:7 looks cool too. I imagine bodies for the 1:7 are a little less plentiful.

Exept for the main conversion parts (motor mount ,battery box) you ll need to replace the 2 speed transmition to one speed with center spool .The parts are interchangeable with the electric dm-1 so you can just replace the 2 speed with center spool adapter of the dm-1e(in this case you use the same center shaft ) .You can also keep the 2 speed but i dont recomended.
I can supply to you the conversion parts so if you are interested please send me a pm.

So just going by RC monster's website, the single speed conversion (you can make one yourself) and the motor mount together cost $75 + shipping. A new kit costs ~$200 so the value is kind of out of proportion. I don't mind paying $75, but $200 quickly becomes $400 after you buy wheels, pinions, servo, etc. I'm just gonna throw my 2200kv and a 7955tg that I have laying around, but there must be other options, right koval?

Maybe a new kit is better from you depends on what exact do you want to do ,if you just want a second electric car go for the dm1-e kit.

The mount on the e kit looks kind of flimsy compared to center diff mounts.

Indeed ...what if you upgrade the new kit with the high speed mount?

I'm not sure what you mean by the high speed mount, but I'm pretty sure I will just buy a Spec-E and probably buy the RC monster mount and single speed conversion unless there are others who make them. I read some stuff on the single speed and how you can make your own easily, or repurpose other parts, but my internet skills are severely handicapped because I just had laser eye surgery.
