Same style of car, just different manufactures. None of the parts interchange. The Team C car is setup for dual batteries, which is nice, but that layout will limit the length of motor you use. Most 1/8 scale "speed run" cars use larger motors, say 82mm and longer. I doubt that you'd be able to fit anything longer that a 74mm motor in the Team C car.

i didi find a cheap source for the OFNA GTP2E.

$147 with about $35 shipping. I would buy 2 though. Parts are hard to come by these days.

Wow! That's an incredible find and deal for brand new gtp2e's.

In my opinion 1/8 scale GT and GT2 cars are best for speed runs because of how durable and tough they. They usually have aluminum chassis, shock towers and other vital parts. Crashes and blowovers happen to everyone in this game and these cars can really take the abuse. Here is a vid of a 151 mph blowover I had in my Mugen MGT7. Literally no damage besides scratches on the roof of body and some foam that came off the tires:

That is always good when the damage is minimal. Is your body fiberglassed?

BTW: That thing moves! I am just trying to hit 110 mph lol!

Yeah damage was limited to 2 chunked tires and a mildly bent cvd. Luckily I had spares. My bodies are reinforced with 10+ layers of drywall tape and shoegoo which makes it very strong and flexible. A fiberglassed body would have been cracked beyond repair.

110 mph is very respectable. Just keep pulling the triggerand chasing that speed.

I've been using the 42t conical gears for awhile now and it did make a lil difference, basically taller gears! I'd like to see if the 14t gear from the gtp2e fits to get an even taller ratio, I'm pretty sure they're the same exact size just different tooth count!

So the 42t ring gear does work with the stock 13t diff pinion? No wonder your motor gets so hot. Would be cool if the ofna pinion worked too.

Well I'm new to speed runs but not to RC, I bought a Traxxas Slash 4x4 to get me started, using the saga motor mount with a Poseidon 1527. Very happy so far, I've ran 3 times on 6s (built for 8s) have managed to hit 112mph. Can't wait to get my MGT7 going

I use some pretty cheap chargers but they've never held me back although it would be nice to have a bettrr one that measure internal resistance. My chargers were only $25-$35 each.
