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.
