Well, it's easy, all is stock right now on my car, so the motor/controler is a...Let me take back the official stuff : Team Orion Brushless System : Vortex R8 Splash Proof(Compatible up to 4S Li-Po /
Water Resistant) ESC(Constant/Peak Amp : 130A / 760A) and Votex 8 / 4 pole / 2000KV
Brushless Motor. ESC has heat and safe protection.

As i'm quite new in RC, the choice of motor is maybe the most difficult thing for me. Even if I understand the principle, there's so many kind of it that i'm quite lost.

As for all the others possible upgrade, hey...Let's be honest, i'm french and in france there's virtually nothing for the GT2 and I don't know which website to choose to buy upgrades, if you can advice me on that i'll be glad

Fort he tires I saw that speedline one seems good, i'll check on that.
It's all function of money. Depends how much you want/can spend.

I have two nitro GT2s converted to brushless. One already converted. Second in the process.

First one has Tekin RS8 ESC and Tekin T8 2000kv motor, savor servo for steering, front CVDs, center front and rear CVDs, Sweep Racing 50 tires.

Send car will have Castle Creatins Mamba Monster ESC + 2200kv motor, savor servo, front CVDs, Alpha Racing mid compound tires...

May I will also upgrade top plates on both to carbon-fiber...

Default as promised here are the pics

Many thanks!

I took a different approach meanwhile- I extended the bumper towards the front, I made a complete new bumper out of PE-Foam, didn't drive it yet, but seems to be working...if not, I will try your solution!

You car looks great with the Leds!

What tires/ wheels are these again- sweep?

I started to balance the wheels, but I didn't help much.

Where did you start to shim- where did you found the most play, so I can start there...

Thank you!

Default Mechanical Brakes

Greetings!

I was preparing to pick up a GT2 RS VE roller in a little bit and I was wondering if anyone has modified their stock setup to use mechanical brakes. The mod looks fairly easy - use rc-monster dual servo tray, add 2nd servo, and add the nitro model's brake linkage and disc hardware, etc. - however, I was wondering if there is anything else I may need for this?

Also, slightly off my initial topic, I've seen that the GT1 chassis have been prone to flexing and even warping in some instances. Is this a problem for the GT2 RS chassis and should I be looking to upgrade to another Kyosho chassis (i.e. ST-RR) immediately?

BTW, I plan on doing speed runs and mild bashing, but if the local track starts racing this class then I'll mod accordingly.

Anyone here ever heard of someone converting a Inferno Buggy into a GT (minus the 2 speed). Was looking at doing it a few years ago but sold the kit and got something else.
