i was running the 21t with 21.5 boosted, from my f1 car. Now I think I will go for a 17.5 with the 15t or less

Spares can be found via AsiaTees, but here in Switzerland we can get everything via Hobbyshop.ch

what axles should I get if I want to increase the width? I don't mean longer swing shafts, just the part with the threaded shaft.

I need to modify its width to fit the porsche 911 gt3 vip cup body but i am stuck on the width part.

I know the XB porsche gt3 comes with a tt01e chassis but I want it to take the body and put it on a MR chassis.

It's always possible... you just need to find some.

I've just picked up the RTR version of this car. It uses a 380 sized motor, and I noticed that the pinion is a 13T unlike the standard kit. It turns out that the motor adaptor isn't symmetrical, which gives it different gearing options.

With a fairly light (235g) LiPo, the ride height is too low at around 4.5mm each end and 4mm in the centre due to the sag in the flexible chassis. I'm struggling to find a way to raise the ride height. I see earlier in the thread, shimming the bulkheads is how to adjust ride height, but that will only lower it, not raise it. It looks like a custom sized shim could be used to add some preload to the springs to increase the ride height, if only I had the means to make some. Has anyone else encountered this issue? I'd imagine using 540 sized motors would exacerbate the problem since they're heavier than the 380 motor that the RTR kit comes with.

I'll check mine out tonight. I'm at a legal height with USGT tires.

On closer inspection, the RTR version comes with different springs than the kit version. Green front, yellow rear. That's the two softest spring options. With stiffer springs it'll probably sit higher. I probably should have ordered that spring kit.

That sounds right. How does the 380 make it go? I find it interesting that there's still room for 380, when the asians tend to "start" at like 10.5 turn motors.

... we need some low tractino 30-40w motor racing in the US. And more 500w racing

There’s an RTR version of it? If I had any idea they’d offer it that way I would have waited. Mine is still in the box waiting to be built.

MST TCR-FF 257mm HONDA EG6 Flat Yellow Pre-Painted Body 1/10 Touring RTR w/ 2.4GHz Radio #531801YF <-- Link to RCMart (other two colors, white and red, are out of stock).

I was looking for this kit so I can canibalize the body for my other build. Trying to get the body is almost as expensive as getting the kit WITH the body. Sheesh...

Don't really know yet, weather is crap so can't run it yet. A brief stint in my driveway did indicate it'll be slow as hell. It is a 56T 380 sized brushed motor that does 12k rpm geared at 5.7, so it's not surprising.

It is a sweet body, but boy is it heavy. 133.7g without the wing mirrors or light buckets installed. The body is almost stiffer than the chassis.
