Use the drop down to select and search your model. The GT8 nitro versions should be good.

Wondering what diff oils most folks are running? Right now I've still got the stock setup and it feels a lot like a front wheel drive car with the 300k, 300k, 40k. Was thinking of trying 60k in the front to even it out a bit? Right now one of my biggest problems is the back end coming around on me.

I hear the nitro guys are running 200kf and 60k rear? Wondering what kind of difference there might be between 200 and 300k in the front

I would be curious also. It matters also if ur using V1 or V2 diff gears.

Now im running a nitro car.

I was using V1 with 200K 40K and felt pretty good. Then I went to V2 gears supposed to be smoother diff action, but u have to run higher weight oil, I started with 300, 80 and I don't think I like it. When u turn the wheels on the stand it feels looser than it did with V1"s 200 40.

Any thoughts. Seems to have a push on 180 turns, and when it does turn the rear will kick out.

Help guys,
Currently my car handles great on turns, but i have to drive it like if it was a tv with a one way diff at front...
The diff oils are front 100k, center 30k, rear 7k. Turns great but if I brake the rear just loose it and makes the car finish looking the other way...

To me the probkem could be in the center diff, but not sure what oil i need to go up to. If thats the case... Any advice please?...

Curious why your going with lighter in the center? Isn't the center diff usually higher to ensure even power distribution to the front and back?

Last week I tried the red (softer) springs in the back of my car and it seemed to help keep the back end from coming around as easy.

This week I'm going to try 200,300,40 in a effort to make it more of a 4 wheel drive car vs a front wheel drive car that it is with the stock setup. I never got around to trying the 60k in the front yet but still might?

I agree about the center, thought there was some reason u were running it so light. Your 200 300 40 should be a nice step up. Find out what gears u have. V1 are black, V2 are light metal color.

Thinking of getting the gte
Is the 72mm motor length referring to the can or the can+ output shaft??

According to the CC site, the can is 68mm and diameter is 41 or so, so yes it will fit.

Then about motor/esc choice.
It depends a lot on the size of the track you are running, but in general my opinion is that you should atleast go for a 2200KV motor, and gear up if you need more speed, and if temperature allows.
Currently I'm testing a 2400KV sensorless motor with the HW SCT ESC, and it looks good.
Spur is the composite type, and a 20T pinion on the motor.
Top speed at start is 85 kmh, and after 10 minutes it's still around 80.

I really would like to see a comparisation between the Electric and Nitro GT, in terms of topspeed and handling out of a corner...

Running on a small track 140 ft straight but some really fast guys there I'm currently running a teamc gt8le but the long chassis makes the infield difficult so handleing is more key than speed I will be doing a lot of quick throttle bursts with stand of braking

I've got a 1700KV running 6 cells with a 19 tooth pinion (my car is at least 30% heavier then theirs..maybe 50%). When I'm on the track with the nitro guys I'm way faster then them accelerating out of a corner (does not matter if its a touring, pan, or GT car.. Have not shared the track with a 1/8 scale yet). On the long strait they did seem a bit quicker at the top end.

At our rather large track we turn faster lap times then the nitro guys by 1 to 2 seconds. But we also don't run on the same day and for some reason we run different tires so a true comparison is tough.
