If you're a racer , you may want to check out what many have done with that car and the evolva gears. It makes for options you may want. That flat chassis will be good until 2015 when the roar rule package will make it illegal.

Default casters

Is there other casters to use so you don't lose the kickup?

I don't want to go from 15t to 21t on the pinion but i want more speed and i am not sure if i will be getting much more with the evolva set up for what it costs. not for a basher anyway
That 21t was a Big jump just to get more speed it was chewing up my spurs try a 19 or20t

With the high speed gear set (spur gears) it's required to run a 21t per Kyosho. We'll see what happens. I'll just set the two speed to shift earlier.

This one is purely a basher. I am building another gt2 just to race.

Thanks! Nah that will look crap i think. Any other bodies for the GT2? Not the painted ones from Kyosho :P

EDIT : Found TEAM C GT2 Body Set 1/8 F599 That would be good i guess

I'm getting some serious front end shake during braking. Is it time for cvd's up front? New bearings probably too. I have a ton of hub play.

The car is fully devolped now...this pic shows the updated top plate from the MP777 and STR, new Kyosho fuel splash shield, mp777 WC steering with ackerman ! Also I installed the "B" blocks upper and lower up front (thanks to a tip from (scarryJerry) which will help lower the caster angle a bit ! This car is like day and night compared to it's original RTR form...I hate to say but the only thing wasnt replaced are the front and rear suspension assemblies !!....If you want to build a competitive racecar it will be cheaper starting off with an MP777WC roller !! I will be running the Ipanema warrior body to help with steering turn in ....hunting for snakes now.. : )
