That is a killer paint job man. BTW, I posted this in the KO Race thread earlier today, but did you guys run the GT2 cars and the OFNA's together? If so how did they match up?

It was a good race and everyone go a chance to run up to the front we all diced for 3rd, Jeffrey and Steve were gone the rest of us were banging doors for quite a while till the banging started to wear on the cars or run out of fuel and blow a plug or even in my case I blew off a whole tire, that's because I thought the fastest way to pass my buddy Dave was on the curb down the straight(AWSOME! SAVE!!!)

DJ,
You could install some 1.0mm - 4.0mm hub extensions on the DM-1 spec with the Proline body.

I just wanted to say that the GT class should get more support and hopefully more racers as well,the cars looks very good going around the track and the handle very well too and you also can put a setup on them too to help them out even more,but the only problem we have is the outcome of drivers to bring there gt's out to race,if we get a high number of participants out to drive with there DM-1's or IGT or IGT2 or GRP we can have a beautiful looking race and the competition can be awesome as well,no matter what you race its all a hobby thats fun and relaxing and great to be a part of,Im new to the nitro cars as of FEB-08 and I really enjoy it,I dont race but I own every car you can name probably and I just buy cars and allow others to drive them,I usually cook on the Grill at 301 raceway and I enjoy that as well but im about to get on my game plan and start practicing so I can race my own cars especially the GT class come on everybody lets get this GT class jumpin more racing more excitement!!!

Yes, Fioroni does make +1mm offset hubs, and most of the buggy/truggy manufacturers make various offset hubs. The Fioroni hubs are lightened, and have 3 sets of pin holes at .1mm increments to get the right fit. The pin holes are 3mm, so you'll have to drill the axles to 3mm to be able to use them.

Now, arbitrarily widening the car by installing wide offset hubs to better fit whatever body you are using, or to 'widen' the car for the sake of widening it will change the scrub angle and change the handling of the car.

I tried it on the buggy but the hubs didn't fit and these are Jammin hubs.

I just got my corvette gt2 in the mail today, I had it on order for a month now. Too bad the last race was last weekend at my outdoor track. I will be out there next year with a brand new car. I can't wait

I'm not a fan of dish wheels on my car, but I will soon have some cool looking wheels on PMT's later.
