Only R+D item right now is the gear conversion deal which is pretty much done, will start pre-orders monday or so!
My fav body is the one i am using but its a chopped long body, i am working on having them made but its not an easy task!
Engine wise right now i am using the TOP "T plus" rally .21 9port (Novarossi)

Now of course i have every option part on my car you can get but thats how i roll

No admission yet as to the pinion or spur size that I've seen but I did see that they advertise 14/43 diff gears.

How does the 'extremely low slung chassis' relate with 'roll center settings' ? Seems to me that it's below the point I saw for the location I saw set on a Cobra GT at Speed World, set by 'Scotty' that in a 'play round' running almost 1 second quicker than the actual TQ of the event.

Will your thread be switching over from 'TeamC' to 'OFNA X3'....??

Jerry, OFNA has nothing to really do with TeamC! OFNA purchased their latest long chassis from TeamC and rebranded them. The OFNA X3 is an OFNA product with zero compatibility with TeamC unless its just a blind coincidence. I am not sponsored by OFNA so no this thread will remain the same and i will remain with TeamC!

Thanks for the clarification. I've never understood the 'difference' between OFNA and TeamC. I've seen their position over the other cars but understand that that trans ratio is key to this battle.

Actually the OFNA DM1 has a very wide range of possible gear ratios. If I am not mistaken the widest on the market.
But with the conversion kit marcus made the TeamC and OFNA GT V2 now have lots of gearing options.

Hi all,
Any news regarding the T08871 replacement short chassis?

What are people doing when their chassis gets bent, broken or trying a new conversion?

I am placing an order monday morning, shipping fees are a bit higher but since i have other things coming to it will be probably only 10.00 or so higher. if you want me to order it, email me at mantisworx@hotmail.com as long as it is pre paid i dont mind. Same thing goes for anyone else wanting any GT parts. Email me with PART NUMBERS AND QUANTITY, no exceptions!! Visit teamcracing.net for part numbers.

Pre- order on the gear set will end on friday. I am not getting much interest so if you do not pre-order I just want you guys to know that it will not be a stocked item. pretty much this is it. It simply cost too much to tool up and get materials in house.
