Welcome to the forum.

That distance is a little short to get these 8-9lb cars topped out. I'm running a Tekin 2250 on 4s using 42/20 gear and hit mid 50s on a 230ft straight on a roadcourse layout. I also am running the taller 3.31 diff gears versus the stock 4.3s . You have the 3.31 diff ratio for both of your cars. If I remember correctly the Ultra has a 51t spur so you need around a 28t pinion if that's possible. I think the Ultra guys change out the stock spur to something smaller.

The softer the REVOs the better for a cold/dirty track suface.

There's lotsa info here for your OFNA Ultra:

That power system should top out around 100mph. I doubt if 200ft is long enough for that speed, considering starting and stopping. Jstall should be able to tell you how much lenghth is needed.

Kyosho has a couple offerings that will fit. Anything for the GT2 class will/should work.
Just looking for 360mm wheelbase bodies.

There is a new guy on the block too coming out with a couple bodies that look pretty sweet. Take a peek back a couple pages.

The C6r Corvette, the Audi R8LM should for sure. theres 1 other one from the Kyosho GT2 that eludes me right now.

I have the Vette on my SnR 360mm Chassis GTP2e and it fits awesome.

That would be the Aston Martin body! I have that on my GT-V2e and it fits perfect! I have a pic posted a few pages back.

I'm not sure about the distance in a drag racing type scenario since I'm easing into the throttle doing my solo runs. My 97.6mph run on gps says .58 of a mile. I'm positive I could shave some distance if there was another car out there racing me. I'm just happy I figured out my dx3r pro range problem. 1/4 mile each way is a decent range. The problem was I bought a used reciever and the antenna wire had about 4" cut off the end, it was never a problem until I started doing speed runs. Its funny because I have like 15 sr3100 recievers and I happen to throw one in with a short wire. Just my luck!

Looks like my buddy wants to buy my Gtp2e from last year so I might be doing some drag racing soon! He's already talking smack lol!

I'm new to this forum, and I also just ordered the gtr body.. I'm somewhat confused, does the body come painted? Or is it a clear shell?
