Default SNR GRAPHITE INFERNO GT2 CHASSIS AND FRONT TOP PLATE


After installed both Front & Rear Shock Tower Graphite from SNR, can feel the performance gain in stiffness on track. I ordered the Dragon Racing Light weight chassis but now found out SNR makes a Graphite Chassis but at a reall Stiff price!

Yeah, the first commercially carbon chassis for the IGT was made by a guy named Paul Roberts (the 1st GT Spec Class World Champion) at Max Velocity several years ago.

It did reduce weight, but it did it in the worst possible place of a car, it’s lowest point.

Unless raising your car’s center of gravity is a priority to you, you might find better alternatives to increase your car’s race track performance and handling somewhere else.

Good quality and fitment. After install and retune entire suspension,
it feels really dialed.

Default Pinion advice

Hello guys. I am converting my old 1/8th Kyosho Inferno 777 SP1 nitro buggy to a GT Inferno on road electric. I would appreciate some advice on :

1. I am using a Tekin 1900kv motor with RX8 Gen 1 speedo. What pinion
range is recommended considering we have a large track considering we
have a large track built for 1/8th nitro pan cars.

2. Is a motor fan necessary and if so which one?

I'm not about maximum speed but rather performance/longevity/out the corner acceleration and not cooking the electronics.

Thanks in advance

Information missing is if you are going to use a 4s or a 6s battery set.

For 6s 1900kv is ok and fast, for 4s I would prefere 2450 kv.

Hey puffdogg, if you need to buy the batterys make shure you go for 40/80C + (steady/peak). Look for quality it will pay off.

Capacity should be 6000mAh + giving you runntimes of 10 minutes and more depending on the track.

With lower C rates the batteries will get hot and tend to puff.

Pinion I would use is 19T +/- 1T delivering a top speed of 80 km/h and good acceleration.

Thats a good choice running on a medium size track.
