Thanks

rgb24- I wish I had some part numbers for you, as I also need some spares. Don't let that discourage you though, I am sure most shops stocking the new kits will also be stocking basic replacements parts very soon...The towers ARE the same, front and rear and 'old' wheels WILL fit, including standard-widths, 5 spokes, etc.

I just ordered mine today, should be here Friday. the buggy doen't come with a manuel that has the part numbers in it. How much different is the setup for the new car versus the old car. also could you post or email me your setup you used on the indoor high bite track or just let me know what you changed from the kit setup. thanks

One of the team drivers gave it to me. This list does not include any of the "Bling Bling" items such as gold hinge pins.
You May also need A-6094, I think the rear hinge pins are longer then the ones on the old car, not sure though.

Does anyone know if the problem with GP3300's fitting was solved in the bk2? I orderd two assembled promatch GP 3300s and I was just browsing their site and found this this, will the packs fit if they assemble them?

I noticed this when I built my KE2. I think once the foam spacer gets compressed a little, the packs will come out much easier. I just pulled the pack out of the back first instead of the front.

They do fit though? I havent assembled mine yet and the packs havent come in yet so Im just concerned about what I read on the promatch site. Do you think they will fit with promatch's assembly?

Thanks

The problem with the cells fitting isn't the length, but the width of the GP cells (rumor is they are shrinking to be standard size). It's best to use flat battery bars to keep them as narrow as possible and if it's still tight ditch that clear chassis protector and use some thinner electrical tape. They should fit just about right.

The pack I used was a Fusion one, so like Derek said the thin bars shouldn't be a problem. My issue was front to back, the fit was really tight until I realized why.

Derek, you sending anyone out to cover the Novak race?

You can just trim the battery foam pad a little with some scissors where it meets the forward rear pivot mount. It just fits tighter in BK2 than XXX b/c now there is a little plastic part in front of the shock tower where the pad goez.

The setup sheet for the BK2 is now available at LosiBoard.com, db is also ready so you can store your setups or review others.

i have some of the old GP's and the a couple of the new green and orange shrink wraps, and the newer ones do really tend to fit better than the ond GP's.

but...i did notice that the newer ones tend to have higher peak voltages, even when brand new...

No kidding they have higher voltage than your older cells....The newer cells are much more power because of the on going process of voltage increasing. GP does make good cells.

Anyone have problems with the gear cover? I got a old style one in my kit, it's not even near to fitting. At lease Losi is replacing it.
