this brings up a good conversation amoung gt cars?
what is a great gt motor?
does a onroad motor like rb classico or nova on-road actually work better for top end or does it lack that of torque of the much heavier 1/8th gt car?
i have a modded .28 in my gt2 but am looking to update my gt1...
imho werks is a cheap motor, if that fits your budget ok...but you get what u pay for!
id love to try a os speed xz-b in my gt1 cause in my truggy, that motor pulls for days, and at motorama it smoked the werks and just about anything else!
os speed is the fastest engines i ever drove, but i do not have any experience with any o the on-road specific engines....are they better???
hmmm anyone?

Well the 1hour IGT race is in the books,

1st - DM1 / ProtoForm / Ipanema / Axial- Nice Job Z

2nd - DM1 / Warrior / Sweep / Fource - Down 6 laps to the winner - better driver and similar speeds.

Got to say this was a lot of fun, and we did have many laps close together. Need to work on the brakes and chassis set up. Better motor had issues as it was spewing fuel all over the place, clutch broke a spring, and it was not happy seeing 400 degrees for a few laps. Of well, it needed to be rebuilt.

Hope the guys in Texas are having a good time. Waiting to see if Andy pulls through. May have to make that race next year.

Got an Argus coming..

Ran my 1/7 DM-1 yesterday with a Go GXR 5-port, and it was really very fast..(til the 2-speed crapped out - again..) Convinced me that a 21 is a better call than a 28. A 28 is just superfluous, drivetrain-destroying torque, and wasted fuel. The Go has enough balls to drift if I want to, and it screams on top end with the 2063 pipe..

Must have been fun running 1 hour straight with your GT, huh?

We'll be doing 1 hour A Mains at our events from now on too.

Congrats and thanks for using our products.

Good luck in your GT race today too!

That is a false and misleading statement.

We have no official team representation attending the Texas Biggie race.

Juan Blaylock (jlock), a close friend and Ipanema user is at the race; the GT class was plagued with intentional rough driving all weekend long.

The A Main is being run at this very moment and we wish him the best of luck.

Just got a call from Jlock.

Said he started pretty much at the back of the A Main with Ipanema 55 shore slicks because of their ability to manage the heat of the 90 degree Texas temps and the 45 minute A Main length.

According to Juan, the heat of the track surface was causing most cars in the main to slip all over the track, a sign of tire overheating.

He was able to move forward gaining position as the race went on, as he was on point.
At around 25 minutes into the race, Juan found himself in 2nd place closing in, when his reciever went south.

Tough break for Juan, he was able to get it fixed only to finish in 7th place.
Guess all those hard hits he took during the weekend took their toll.....

You'll get them next time Juan, proud of you for sticking in there!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Congrats to Bill on his 1st GT win, really looking forward to racing with you in October at our US GT Nats.

Andy, congrats on your TQ, too bad it was the kiss of death for your race, lol jk, see ya at Mike's too

Congratulation to 1st place winner Bill, 2nd place winner Chad, and 3rd place winner David at the 34th annual Texas Biggie. Sweeps Racing Tires TQ'ed and swept podium once again. What a great event it was. I would like to thank Bob and Bill for hosting the event and Jeff for directing the race. I would love to go back for next year. What a great bunch of GT drivers, overall atmosphere was very positive. Lets do our best to grow this wonderful class even bigger

what do you use to make countersunk screw holes? do you make something?
btw your body clip GMK supply are the best 1/8 scale body clips ever? never come off!!!
Jay - Sorry I missed this post earlier! For metric screws I use a 90 degree countersink - it is a cutting tool somewhat like a drill bit, but with the proper angle for the countersink, and they are made with various numbers of flutes, and varying materials, depending on what material you are countersinking. Aluminum is soft and you can use a HSS countersink - you certainly don't need carbide. It is more accurate to countersink in a drill press, but I have done plenty of chassis countersinks using a hand electric drill. For an American SAE screw you'd use an 82 degree countersink. You can get these from any machine tool supply house. LMK if you want to come by the house and I can pop your hole in and countersink it. I live about 5 minutes from Ron Bosco's shop.

Thanks for the props on the body clips. I truly believe mine are the best on the market. I only use USA-manufactured clips, made from 1020 steel, and then plated. They are also the least expensive clips on the market to boot! It's a beautiful thing...
