The L8 shocks should be pretty nice, I'd keep them. Maybe check with Losi as to what springs you have & available for them. Depending on where you run or race, you could try any where from 60 to 80w to start.

Good luck, have fun!

I had a great time racing in Denver this weekend and Grenade and the boys host a nice event. Thanks for the good time over there guys. Thanks to Sweep tires and Ipanema warrior bodies for the sponsorship. Can't wait to do it again. The weather was great and the food was super. The track was smooth and well prepared. CORRC does it right. Thanks again guys.

If you need some different springs, RC4Less has a nice assortment that was reasonably priced - good value for the dollar!

Arn't the GT cars to use a Shoe Type Clutch and not a Centax? Or is that just for stock? Clutch sure looks like std 966.

Especially like the Serpent logo on the Kyosho front Body support lol.

We definitely need more options in this class and looking forward to Serpent getting involved.

Looks to be a competitive car GL

I am sure the body mounts are just temporary till they have their own made.

As stated this is just a "sneak preview".

Car looks good
