The chassis on a GTP is flat. You would be better off with a chassis that has kick-up.
Like the LX-2e

THE GTP2 IS THE SAME PLATE AS THE OLD ULTRA GT AND ULTRA MBX BUGGIES

I've thought about doing the same with my Kyosho MP6. The only downside is it isn't legal with more than a 2s pack.(ROAR) Most 1/8 buggy conversions use 4-6s because of weight. Don
