And here's the items we all use to convert an OffRoad buggy to a GT car...

Au revoir.
Thanks for the info.

In your links two are the same, is there another link? Also do you have one for the chassis??

If you search for "mark the hammer" here on rctech yo will find what it took to do an electric conversion. Being that 95 percent of the parts are the same it should be a no brainer. He did start working on a fuel version with a two speed but it got shelved as other projects took priority...

MUCH better than fighting over what engines are allowed .
Just like the 'ol days when it was rookie/novice , sportsman , expert , then pro

Donít let those ungrateful POS upset you too much, those guys would rather slit their own wrists than ever refer to the Ipanema GT World Championships event by its proper name; let alone acknowledge the names of those who make the greatest GT Only race possible, year after year.

Take care of yourself, I hope to see you again soon!
i think they took care of your price question.. you can move on.. thank you

If you are a Rookie and just getting started use what comes with the motor and go from there. Or try the 087, which you can pick up pretty reasonably plus it is very stout, so it will take some abuse. The high end pipes while lighter are a little less forgiving.

As usuall, just my 2 cents ............
thank you for the info. yes rookie to this class it has been 30 years since i ran a 1/8 nitro on-road car. i do have a couple of buggies though for bashing purposes that i rebuilt for a local club but they went bust befor even got the engines broke in i was gonna use the engines for spares picco 21 with 1 tank and a pair of axial 28 specs with less than a quart each through them 1 new one used & rebuilt and a corsa 28 never fired if the force goes belly up

Hello my friend Josio and I Alejandro. design a conversion for the mbx6 creating the chacis both shok tower and a feet for the agare dishes fontales on the inside of the car with different settings for how to handle of the person. the cart uses the shoks bomber fontal and around dm1 transmicion the rest is of mugen mbx6 and tank 150cc all installed this trrugy the conversion for gt (A&J). This car is more long the dm1 has 17 mm longer but is not so much as kyosho gt2 car handles super well and is very recistente to shocks doesn't lose settings cinealta is very constant differential excellent and a system of rotational mass very light and the car accelerates much faster than others the boddy that work best are Ipanema warriorall kyosho Alpha r2 to gt2, gt2, and the protoform. always there to centralize them well because the car is longer than the dm1, but shorter than the kyosho. This cart is ran initial mind with engine you.28 xz and did not any problem with nothing after the career is check all term is State excellent materials of mugen are highly resistant special mind differentials and axles and endure the power of any engine is are preparing more homiletical soon more news.

You need the shock towers from SNR.
You need 4 of the MBX-4 FRONT shocks
Kyosho body mounts, bumper and gt springs.
If I can find the time I'll post part #s

Does anyone know what is a good wheel nut wrench to get for the GT class..? I bought one of the standard cross wrench with the 17mm nut socket on it...the problem is the sidewall of the socket is TOO THICK and it can barely grip the nut and the wheels (IPANEMA and ALPHA) both won't allow the wrench to go deeper and have a solid grip...

I think I need something with a very THIN side wall on the socket so I can go deeper in it....I remember there is something CHEAP like OFNA has it, however, I want something better....but I am not sure which one other used and it works on GT wheels...

I think BUGGY RIMS are different as no one seems to have any problem of any wrench...thanks.
