there nice cars , and the bodies are great but one crash and there goes the shelf queen body . I have castle system in my GT1 and the tekin in my GT2. The audi body is kool but once u get hi speed you will have to work the bumper either out or up to keep the front body from dragging into ground

Initally when I bought my GT1 with the 2 speed car it had the tekin system running 6S , and it seemed to take it pretty good . Now I run a 2200 castle on 6s and it still runs great, havnt had issue yet so far with it . But I just moved into a new home and started new job so havnt really had time to play like I would have liked

If I had todo over again , would of just bought the roller and tekin system or mamba either one works great for me , good tires and servo and run a real radio system . in the end would , of been maybe hundred or 2 more then buying rtr . I got my rtr brand new under 500 so it felt like a good deal at the time lol I have SP chassis braces front and back , SP aluminum carriers all around , titanium turnbuckles

The next thing I suggest is either some GRP dish wheels , or some alpha slicks becuase the stock tires are mainly for show or shelf

the setup you had before sounds crazy , that1717 is a torque monster and 100mph capable not sure if the tekin is but the 2250 will be nice even though Ive seen it run int he gt2, with right tires and suspension it grips very nice .

do you think the tekin 2250kv motor will handle 6S ok, or should i just use 4S with it?

Yeah, I 've been watching these for a while. I really wish I could get one with the licensed McLaren F1 body, or even find an unpainted one. I'm not a huge fan of the Cepter, the R8, I could live with, but... So it looks like the Vitaphone Aston? if I was to order new?

Maybe I should talk to FloJo below?

Iíve been thinking converting an IGT1 or an IGT2 to brushless.
Looking to run an 8s set-up for top speed runs only.

What do you guys think?
Your advice is appreciated, thanks.
