Yeah the spider gears. Did not know that about the Vorza gears. Nope, they are a straight drop in. You'll learn that most 1/8 scale stuff is interchangeable.

You can get the Sweep's in treaded. 55 EXP treaded for hot dusty lots

It actually uses the vorza cup with the BP machined savage gears. It does away with the crummy left side bearing.

Sorry to get off topic

I am going to hunt down some setup sheets for the GT2

any suggestions on where to look?

Later next week when I get started building the car I will post some pics. I love posting pics.

A blank sheet, or starting set up info?

I found the blank sheet on infernos only. Also found the basic starting setup sheet.

Really looking for anything at all just to get an Idea on some of the ranges of the adjustment and what different shock, diff, and other oils everybody is using.

Depends on your driving style. Try 80wt all around, then adjust from there. Run 60k to 30k in the front diff, run 10k in the rear diff. Run stock springs all around, or stock up front with the option black springs in the rear. Front and rear sway bars. Lean the front socks in, stand the rear ones up. That should get ya going.

I really like the handling on my GT2 and my fluids are very different the ones Ctrickle mentioned.

Diffs - I am running 200,000 in the front and 30,000 in the rear.

rear toe - is usually 3 degrees but on cooler days I can run 2.5. I too run stock springs on shocks that are filled with Mugen 600 oil.

Also, I am a 3mm rear sway bar which really helps with high speed steering.

Shock position front - I am using the top middle position
Shock position rear - I am using the outer top hole

Tires - Ipanema slicks 50 front and rear

Body - Ipanema Warrior

Here's a couple pics of mine. I broke a rear hub carrier yesterday when it slammed into the wall but it's all back together now. I still need to change the clutch bell but I need a few more parts to finish it.

I like the heavy diff fluids, but we run on small/medium sized tracks. So the heavy fluid really makes it a chore to drive around.

I already have some 50k and 30k ofna diff oil. Which would be better for the rear since I am going to be starting out running in a wide open (I mean WIDE open) parking lot? Although I am not a big fan of drifting, I do like to get sideways sometimes!

Also I need to get some good servos. I have an extra Hitech 7955TG. I just feel its too much torque and not enough speed.

I want to try and stick to Hitech, Futaba or Savox brand servos. Also want a quick throttle servo. I like a good accurate throttle.

Plan on using my 2.4 FlySky hacked radio setup so I should be good there for awhile.

Put the 50k in the front, then run 5k-15k in the rear. You could try the 50k front 30k rear, but I would imagine it wouldn't really want to rotate.

I've been running Savox servos for 2 years now the great results. I run their high voltage servos with a li-po battery. But even without a li-po they are great. I run the SC1268MG steering and SC1267MG throttle.
