JLock: I advise you to go and take a long look in the mirror and stand there until you recognise the hypocrite that you have become.

you stand by a racist bigot who constantly attacks people on this forum and other forums. So stop preaching to the rest of us, because we have written him off, placed him on ignore, are boycotting his products, yet you keep defending him and pointing fingers at the rest of us, calling us the problem.

Wake up man, you are a major part of the problem yourself.

What parts would I need to mount a body like the Kyosho Inferno Sabuaru body on a Losi 8ight buggy?

I already have the onroad tires, also, would Proline Badlands tires fit?

Ok....back to the GT thread for some advise. Just focusing on clutch setups, which would cause more stress on an engine an aggressive setup w/ stiff springs and aluminum shoes or a cush setup w/ soft springs and composite shoes. Thanks in advance!

If you have a Losi8 to convert to GT car, Losi has basically done it already.



All the parts for a conversion should be available from Losi dealers, check here for the parts list.

Good luck!

Try downloading the losi L8 manual and find the fr bumper and fr and rr body mounts. You may also need the shock towers fr and rr and short shocks for the rr! Hopefully someone else can chime in that has done this conversion! An article from tony p. a couple issues back in RC driver mag addresses this type of gt8 conversion electric version though. It may help regardless.

+1

Depending on your track size you might be able to keep the single speed set-up using any of the European "Rally Game" nitro engines. If you're going electric you'll be good with the diff too.

A clutch set-up with a very high "stall speed" can affect the drivetrain more than anything because of the shock when it grabs hard. It would make the car real quick out of the hole, no doubt, but at the same time can lower fuel run times.

You should also be aware that a clutch set to "kill" might be a handful depending on the engine's power output, track surface condition and the available traction level of the track or your tires.

Most times its best to start somewhere in the middle, something like a 1.0 spring, you can always go up to a 1.1 or down from there to a .95 to better dial the power in.

Some swear by aluminum shoes and some by carbons. Aluminum grabs hard which might be real good in a qualifier, but might not be best for a long main. A lot of the guys seem to run a mix of aluminum & carbon shoes to reach a middle ground. A full carbon shoe set-up is very smooth and sometimes easier to control, but they do wear out a little faster. Every thing is a trade off or balancing act.

When running very long mains you might want to run all carbon shoes if you're worried about blowing clutch bell bearings because of the heat aluminum shoes can generate. Just my experence, hope it helps.

.... and I didn't even attack those haters that deserve to be smashed to bits, lol, whats the world coming to? lol

Later!

You are part of the problem, too. Everytime you post something, it is always something negative about something or someone. I don't know you and don't wish to know you. You are as big of a hypocrite as the next. You haven't posted much on the GT thread in months and what is the first thing you do, direct a negative post at me. What are you bringing to the GT table my friend: nothing!!!! How about keeping the thread focused on GT and GT racing, not personal attacks. Like I posted earlier, if you have nothing positive to post about GT, the rest of us really don't want to hear it anymore. The negativity has gotten old, really. Find some other medium to use as a bully pulpit towards those you don't like. Leave this thread for those of us that would like to positively discuss things concerning our GT cars and GT races.

The Cobra GT is apparently on hold right now. The basic car is done and last I heard, they were making some minor tweaks to it. You might want to shoot an inquiry e-mail to Serpent to see what their response is about the car and its possible release.

Think I need to try lower gearing in my DM-1 for more acceleration. My question is, the DM-1 clutch bell is very expensive - and not available at Tower or Amain..(where I get discounts.., and can order other stuff for my other RC's..), whereas the SG's are cheap and more widely available. Could I just go up +1 on the SG's, or would the difference not be enough? Stock, the DM-1 has 16-20 on the CB, and 44-48 SG's.. With this gearing you need a long-axx way to hit top-speed.

So, should I go up on the SG's, or down to say 15-19 on the CB?

Hi folks, for any rally fan out there gotta advertise these TT rally tires on Venom O.Z. like wheels, look great don't they?!! And the insert feels good, too

First some comparison of these, the TT rally is "just right" for any tarmac mixed gravel type running, I feel proline being a bit too large in dia:

Proline Road Rage bottom
TT rally tire middle
Ipanema GT wide on top









I haven't glued them just yet
