I just finished my SC8 to GT yesterday. It looks very good and it is very light compared to either the DM1 Spec or the GT-2. I still haven't tried it at the track, maybe tomorrow if I get the chance. I will try the plastic ones first and see how they perform. I will post pictures as soon as the front bumper arrives.

Sounds great. I am looking forward to seeing the pics. Most of the stuff I ordered comes in by Tuesday, so hopefully I can get to posting some pics later in the week. I'm going to bolt on the Losi L8ight front bumper and rear body mounts as well. On the DM1 and Inferno GT, do most prefer the plastic or the aluminum chassis braces?

On the DM1 most people use the stock plastic ones. The K car has braces that are like tierods (like the original RC8). Most Kyoshos are still using the stock braces as well at least locally.

If that car is set up right. Forget about it!!! I was at Blue Diamond today and my friend Kitchen has his 8 up and running. All I can say is WOW!!! the car is insane... and the track didn't even set up yet traction wise.

On a side note. How do you get more steering out of a GT2? Are sway bars a must because my car was rollin' like something crazy and i'm running 80wt f/r.
Thanks

***Edit: Didn't realize it was electric.

Dude for your car not to be setup well yet you drove very nice today. When you get that gt2 dialed in im going to have to look out for you from my rear view that is but if you need any help or have any questions get my number from kitchen I notice your Vette body was dragging in the front if you don't get your warrior body and bumper before the next time you come up BD let me know I have the bumper you need for that body you can run it. Nice meeting you today.

Default Help Needed.

First off I want to say thanks for advice given in advance. My plan is to make the Texas Biggie in 13 days and need some much needed info to convert my Hot Bodies D8 to a Gt.

Plans: let me know if will work or if I'm missing anything.

Body- PFG 8, will it fit?
Body mounts and front bumper - kyosho GT2 will they work with modifications?
2speed- K GT2, will it fit in original diff holder or better to get the whole assembly and bolt in. Kyosho or other brand?
Fly wheel and clutch- can I use 2 speed clutch bell on my buggy flywheel 3 shoe
or do I have to use 34mm kyosho 2shoe set up.
Diff oil- assuming I can get 2speed in, what diff oil weight should I use in Front and Rear.
tires- I plan on running sweep slick 45shore, how long due they last, how many sets do I need for a race like this and is this the right shore.

I think that's it I already ordered most parts I listed, and need to get to work just want to know if I'm on the right path. Hope to get it going by next weekend and test it out in Porter Tx before Biggie.
