The same Novarossi S21P3 I raced with and finished 4th. I hope the increased length of the chassis will eliminate my few spins totally. I don't know when or where I'm gonna race though. It may as well be next year who knows. The races we have left this season are too far away for me to go for the weekends. But I have a personal lap timer so it's always fun to see if I can put better laps on the track.

The "housing" is the just the spill cover next to fuel tank.

I just converted a Thunder Tiger to 1/8 GT. I am very happy with it so far. Used parts from Mugen, XTM and OFNA to build 2-speed with the help of my dremel. I was about to make major changes to suspension until I found the ride hight adjusters.

Check out the pics

Very cool. I am converting my ST-1 into a GT car. I am using the EB4 S3 suspension with the ST-1 chassis and 2 speed. It works out great and will have the same wheelbase as the GT2, so I can use the GT2 bodies. Will post pics when finished.
