Default Inferno gt2 8s castle 1717 34t project

Hello guys,
Here is a buid that i have started in my milling machine a few days ago ...
A conversion kit for inferno gt2 that will allow to use the big block motor of traxxas XO-1 (castle 1717) or larger motors like leopard 1/6 scale -high speed pinion gears up to 38t-8s lipo batteries.
An extreme set up for very high spedd passes under 100mph.
This is the aluminum motor mount

Questions??

I have an Inferno GT2 with a short IGT chassis plate. It was originally nitro powered and then I converted it last spring to brushless. It is mostly stock except for:
  • Leopard 2000kv 4082 motor (was a Kershaw Design "exclusive")
  • Hobbywing 150A ESC
  • Dragon Racing CNC'd chassis plate
  • Inferno VE battery/ESC tray
  • Sweep wheels/tires
  • Front sway bar kit
  • Sky 6S battery
  • 20/46 gearing
  • Protoform PF8GT body

The car runs great on 4s or 6s, however I have an issue of keeping it on the ground with 6s. Anywhere between 20-60% (estimated guess) throttle, I can hammer the throttle and it will wheelie which I've gotten used to and have adjusted my trigger finger accordingly after ripping the rear corners of the body from dragging on the asphalt. However, if I gradually give it throttle, around 80-90% throttle the car will still slowly come up off the ground and flip.I'd like to be able to do full throttle speed runs, but most of the time the car will lift off. Using the Scriptasylum page, this setup should be good for 82mph (theoretically).


The asphalt I've been running it on is about as flat as possible so I've ruled out hitting a crack or bump at speed and upsetting the car. I think it has more to do with aerodynamics and was hoping someone might have good suggestions. I was thinking about getting another PF8 body and modding the area between the tail lights and the rear bumper. Either some "speed holes" or maybe even removing some of that area like I used to do when racing pan cars in the early 90s. Or...I might try an Ipanema body if those would offer superior aerodynamics.


Any other suggestions would be appreciated!

This is a usuall problem with short chassis electric gt,my friend igt does the the same thing especially with good tires on a high grip aspsault.
What silicone diff oil you use in the center diff?As you reduce the thickness of the center diff oil the less weeling you get .
Also try to raise the height of the rear end of the car and reduce the droop effect .

I'm running 100k in the center diff. I'll try raising the rear. I had to re-trim the wheel wells and raise the body a little for the Sweep wheels/tires as the OD is a little larger than the stock tires. Would moving the spoiler forward help? Mine is mounted so that more of it is off the rear of the mounting pedestal.

Starting you must replace the silicone diff oil with a 50k on center diff ,raising the rear will also helps .
