Hot glue works in a pinch. Figured this out after catching the on-road bug while messing around with my RC8B.

I'm interested to hear how this works out. I'm a little North of there in Land O' Lakes (StPete40 user name is a little dated).

Holy $hit on a stick, what a difference! The three parts alone changed the handling of the car. I now have way less body roll and more precise and controlled steering. If anyone is contemplating these mods, do it!

I saw some pics of Marcus's car with custom rear diffuser so I DIY'd my own rear splitter with a Traxxas X01 rear diffuser and some custom turnbuckles with carbon shafts to dress it up. Definitely finishes the look since I have X01 front splitters (thanks for the idea JStall!) and front aluminum splitter. Front and rear splitters also hold down the body shell nicely with zero wobble.

Still have to install Jato links and tackle the wheel wobble/play issue.

SNR Carbon Chassis and FR&RR Carbon Towers have been ordered! Can't wait!

Does anyone know if there is an upgrade aluminum screw kit for the GT-V2e? Someone should come out with one (hint hint Marcus )

Pics:


Dang! Those mods look really nice! Car looks like its ready to rock! Great job!

I've been working on this so far today, GT-V2e upper deck Prototype, it's .060 lexan from lowes painted chrome on the bottom. Not sure how this will hold up but I need some serious room for the XL2 and all the required items. Look's cool if nothing else lol!

Chris, that happens from time to time over here.

My XL2 arrived, just need to figure out which chassis to drop it into.

Did the epoxy on the inside of the Warrior, excellent resin, flow-out is unreal, very impressed with the results.
Thank you very much for the tip, its not cheap, but that epoxy is awesome stuff!

Man the more i see these cars the more i want one.
BUT i have a reg chassis GTP2e and an SnR long chassis GTP2e AND a Traxxas XO-1
Really cant justify another OnRoad car...
I think if i ever broke the SnR Chassis i would change out to the GTv2e just so i could keep the bodies i have for the long chassis.
