I know, but I'm thinking how many wheel nuts did I lose even in the days of my Black Foot? Give me one less licensed decal with this item and add that cost to a better wheel nut.

Default GT:2 with 2 battery tray conversion

im planning on keeping the 1.5y 1950 kv novak and matching it with the right pinion. the stock pinion is 17t.

i have pinions on order 15-through 20.. so im hoping to test with a whole bunch. A higher kv (2600) motor is an option but not efficient for straightaways less than 130-150 feet. you want to have reached top rpm by the time you need to brake near the end of the straight.
Sorry to but in... I'm looking for anyone who has set there gt2 up to hold 1 battery on the far right and 1 far left. Please send me pics and if possible part #'s or name of part.. Thank you

I made a convection kit in the past with two battery trays on each side and the motor placed above the rear center drive shaft.

Here is a center spool conversion with machined spur gear adaptor compatible with 36t or bigger 3bolted spur gears like traxxas revos.









This spur gear adaptor convert the center diff to solid just replacing the 2 speed transmition with the adapter ....gearing up to 1:1 or more!

Thank you!
If your planning on going fast, be it drag or speed runs GRP's are it! You just have to choose slick or tread and the softness. The lower the # the softer the tire. I run S1's on mine. I do drag race.. I think "but check" speed runs use a harder tire n track in the middle. Just remember softer means you'll run through them faster. S1 stick like glue!! Love them!

Nice car! I'm trying to find a 5th scale weel conversion for my Inferno GT2. I need more traction and those GRP's would do the trick! They have adapters for the XO-1 so I'm hoping some one heard of something!!!!!!

Hello ,
i made 1/5 tire adapters and 1/5 size motor mounts for inferno cars .
Here is a photo with the adapters installed on inferno mp9 ,compatible also with gt2 ,st ,neo etc.




http://brushlessmaniac.blogspot.gr/2...pters-for.html

Just note that these tires are aproximately 15mm larger diameter than the 1/8 gt tires , they are almost the same diameter with 1/8 buggy tires



For this reason you need to trim the body for the larger wheels.

I run GRP's as well. S1 is all I run. This weekend I blew a brand new tire! I mean 20feet new! When it blew, it tore a big rip in a brand new body. People are telling me to try BSR foams. I've seen fast cars with them. I don't understand there color chart. There $37 a pair!!! So I want to get the right ones!
