Do I recall you saying Marcus that Team C were looking at upgrading the center drive shafts, or the wheel shafts?

Are these to be included in the kit or an option part?

Need help on the gt8le/gtv2e setup I know your nitro guys here but there doesn't seem to be much going on in the other threads except for top speed straight line guys.
My issues are mainly getting the car to stay flat in the turns. Under power it wants lift the inside front wheel if I get that to stay down the rear end is all over the place any help apprecited.

These are the ones they sent me for testing, they are the wheel shafts:


As you can imagine there are 1000's of kits already boxed and in distributors world wide so there is no way they can replace the ones that are in the kits already. These shafts are shared with the nitro and E buggy kits too. The most sensible thing to do is use remaining stock for kits and put the upgraded ones for sale as separate parts. These are still in testing phase so it will be a while before they are publicly available. With all that being said i think i am the only one that has managed to break them, the previous ones have been used for years

Search this thread for my setup and start from there but it sounds to me like your ride height is too high and your droop settings are off. you should also go with 1500 front shock oil and 1200 rear. The long chassis has lots of flex I have found that the aluminum chassis braces really help control it along with the LRP arm braces, which i would add first.

and I've come up with a superb way of over coming the wrong parts given to us from the kit




but....back on topic a bit......

as I've said before, I felt the standard brakes are a bit sh!t from just looking at it, and since I have a few parts laying about, I've tried fitting brakes from another brand, mainly Kyosho

What, you can't take a bit of banter?

Here, insert these's into my posts to make you feel better


And,

With regards to my opinion on stock brakes, look, I changed them due to my own feelings towards those stock brakes are not good enough, these's are MY opinion's, I had NOT FORCED anyone to follow my path.

My idea on changing to brakes from Kyosho is simply because...I CAN, and to show it can be done, it's just the same as anyone who likes to mod their cars, add a bit of bling as to say...

anyway...

I come up here to voice my opinion, I voiced how my feeling's were with regards to a $380usd car, I liked some of it, I hated some of it too.

I'm not going to target you nor anyone on here who runs a TeamC car, I'm just simply voicing my opinions.

OE brakes of the GT8 are more than enough...upgraded brakes would be better just like any other kit on the market that have upgraded brakes, but really that type of Kyosho brakes in the pic are probably from the late 1990s...you will feel a lot of brake fade at the speeds the present cars can reach....

kyosho have a nice brake type ... but is not this in the pic ( is the sp2WC brake calipers with bonded pads that works very good )... this in the photos is an rtr brake ... and will last 2 or 3 minutes to start collapse ...

my igt is running a fiber glass brake system by JQ .. that is amazing ... and I definitely chose this type of brakes to run, due to its great braking power and low working temperatures compared to conventional brakes (metal disks and pads ferrodo) that melt the tranny support !!!

Well do us all a favor and keep it positive. I get enough "banter" trust me!
BTW the kit is not 380USD

The brake issues you were having is because of the transmission mount not the actual brakes, stock brakes with the aluminum transmission mount work very good. Seeing as you are just now installing the AL mount you wouldnt know this.


Me as well as most of my followers dont care to see negative post that ultimately end up with me being the bad guy. So like your momma probably told you if you can t say something nice dont say anything at all!! lets keep it positive or you can start your own "TeamC bash" thread

Well said Marcus .. Lets all keep the peace ! As for the poor English on the buggy
Box ... That's was just lost in translation ... I remember when I was building my full scale Toyota Supra 10 yrs ago. All the made in JAPAN parts from HKS and GREDDY had even funnier descriptions written on the boxes !!!! Lol... Also very interesting what you said about the vent holes. I will have to do that on my next Mclaren body ... Wow... Great R&D my brother !!!
