I have a question; can anyone tell me what the going rate is for a GT modified w/ long chassis? I am trying to sell my GT, if you haven't seen my attempt at selling it, and I am wondering if there just isn't a market for used Kyoshos' or if I'm just asking too much. I'd rather sell it here to people that can respect the car than ebay.

Thank you for any advice.

Most guys here in NYC run sweep slicks 50's all around. Depending on temps you can go to the 45's (shorter life, more grip) in the rear. Alpha also makes a nice RTR tire as well. If ur just bashing the kit tires are fine. You can apply wd40 to give a lil more grip and soften em up.

GT1 converted to long wheelbase GT2 chassis. Been hearing some people run 10mm, some 20mm? Quite a big difference. Its going to be run on a flat and smooth racing surface.

It allows for a longer arm throw for better steering. Come by and see my car next time and I'll show you

Actually I built a gt1 with a mp777 chassis.Thanks for answering my question.I had heard it gives you more steering.My dumb arse sold my GT1 and GT2 Last year.I planned to be up there tomarrow but things did not go well today.So I should be up there next week.Be sure and school Mr Grant Tomarrow.His head has exploded
Beginners Luck....
Are you running more than 1 degree neg camber in the front?
Thanks Pit..
I should also be running a tc6.1 blinky for the first time.we shall see how that goes.

Man that Team C car has plenty of steering.

Hi there!

I just got my Inferno GT2 VE RS out for the first time on a parking lot.

Stock gearing, 4s.

I have the Audi R8 body and the front part of the body starts to vibrate quite a bit, even hitting the ground with the front spoiler lip- even though I have quite some ground clearence.

Reducing the speed and the vibration will stop...

Any input?

The vibration is only at "high" speeds- I reached around 37mph with that gearing.

The body is quite soft in the front

There are NO vent holes in the body yet, all stock so far.

May I suggest you go to the Electric GT Thread, this is the Nitro thread. There are many people that watch that thread that imo can better help you.

Here is the link

Thanks @1speedy!

But according to post #1 the VE (electric version is included in this thread), right?
