He runs the Ofna DM1 spec 2 speed. It drops right into the Losi housing.
He goes by Kitchen and he usually posts up in the Trains and Lanes onroad thread in the racing section. PM him and ask for a pic. I'm sure he will be happy to help.

Yes, yes, photos please! I have a LOSI I've been dying to convert. I think they would make an awesome GT.

Depends on how fast you want to go, who your racing with and can you afford to go fast/keep up. Motor/Clutch/Servo. Sway bars/Gears/Tires depending on the track.

For the most part setting up your diffs and shocks to get the car stable. After that, practice alot. Then work on your clutch i.e different springs/shoes.

Your best bet is to buy a good used roller and buy everything that you need instead of getting an rtr then have to replace the junk. You will end up spending more in the long run.
