An early New Year's Day wish that I hope will come true for 2012:

I hope that all the GT racing factions can get along and race in peace and harmony starting next year and beyond. I hope that brand affiliations, manufacturer affiliations, group affiliations, etc can all be put aside, race altogether at whatever races are put on for GT cars (regardless of who is sponsoring the race), race cleanly and in a sportsman-like fashion, and may the better racer win. Too much valuable time and too much essential energy has already been wasted with all this infighting and bickering amongst GT racers. Lets stop playing tug-of-war with each other and all team together and pull the rope together!!! This is not too much to ask, is it?

Finally it has happened a slick tire for my drag racing Revo I was using a set of holeshots just for the low weight and low profile tread burning the tread up to make them slicks.

For those still doing conversions, Has anyone done a conversion on a hot bodies buggy? It's a ve8 and not a d8, but it's the same concept.

Default Hot bodies conversion

I have a hot bodies Lightning 2 pro converted to an igt car.
I looked at useing a d8 chassis but the problem I saw was with the narrow chassis. The clutch bell for the 2 speed did not have enough room with the fuel tank mounted.
