There will likely be a couple of new cars debuted at the GLC in Toledo next week!

Default Clutch Springs

Does anyone know if there are hard springs available for the GT? My clutch is catching even at idle and spins the wheels so the car will not sit still at idle. Is it the clutch or something else? Any suggestions? Nice pics by the way.
Thanks.

“Secret Duneland Man”…. tell em to bring it on down Florida way.

Crash, I hear ya, big track=bigger gears

RCDok, check you clutch bell bearings, might be shot, they won’t “free-wheel” from the crank.

Mika, whats new in Finland?

That gearing might be too tall for our local track.. but it should be great for the Vegas race in November..... Oh... and I just ordered a set from Kyosho....

Hi JSpeed, at the weekend we had the third national buggy race for this season, finished 26/64 and considering the amount of running my buggy the result was pretty decent. With a better set of tires I may have bumped to the semi as my bowties were pretty worn out and slipping. But since we started with GT's this summer I'm not that interested in offroad anymore. GT's are so much more fun. I expect to be able to do some testing this week with these new parts (incl. the new shock towers and shocks) and the Ipanema tires. Just would need to get a lap timing system to measure the improvements. Not sure yet when the next GT race will be.

a friend that I race online with said he can pick them up and ship them for me. If I get 4 bodies the shipping will be about $40usd.
