Cool, cheers

No conversion kit but I would assume this kit going from gas buggy to electric truggy would give you most of the part numbers that would be needed: http://www.amain.com/Serpent-Cobra-8...on-Kit/p261362

Hi guys, I'm looking at getting me a GT8E kit, I won't buy the RTR.....RTR always sucks....but anyway.....I just want to know what you guys think I Wi ll need for the cars initial setup, is there any upgrades I need? could someone kindly give me a list of recommended parts/ electronics and so on....I would really appreciate it. I just sold my Kyosho GT1 and GT2 rs. I'm hooked on 1/8 Gt....thought of the 977e but just won't work on our track....

Need 0 degree c hubs and knuckles, metal servo arm (has to be the serpent one) probably some springs to tune for your track. Be careful of your motor selection can length cannot exceed 96mm

Is that 96 mm measurement from the Sertpent Cobra or the GTE8e ?

The Team Orion 1/8 Motor also fits, but barely, it will only work on the kit chassis which is milled (the RTR isn't) you need 2mm washers between the motor mount and motor and then you have about 1/2 a mm clearance between the end of the motor and the steering assembly.

I'm running a 2100kv on 4s, 20t pinion I think

Length is the main issue

Start with a 19t Pinion and monitor temps, My motor usually comes off at 75c after a 5 minute race without a heatsink or fan.
