Default Ofna Gtp2e Build

http://s1094.beta.photobucket.com/us...o/library/OFNA

Here what i got so far, thanks to all the guys that pointed me in the right direction. Gens ace 6s battery is getting here on friday.http://www.hobbypartz.com/98p-60c-5300-6s1p-6666.html I only payed $110 shipped 3days ago, the bump the prices up big time (50%). What are you guys doing for aero dynamics which seems to be the most important things past 70-80mph?

Why do some people apply fiber glass inside the car bodies?

Looking good, are they shipping the GTP2e now with the Maclaren style body?

Some of us have mounted the Traxxas XO-1 high speed splitter up front.
End result looks a lot like this (pic of my old DM1-e)



See no reason why it wouldn't be able to mount on the GTP2e front end without a bunch of modifications. Heck i just sandwiched it between the bumper and foam on the DM1-e.


Fiberglass on the inside to me just means a bit more rigidity and durability.

Thank you for the compliments, would have been able to do it without the help and advice. Yes they are getting shipped with mclarren bodies. xo-1 front lip seem like a very good idea. I also ordered the single speed conversion as you adviced. planning on getting used to the car at 70-80mph before i go triple digits.
