I just need some help with motor and speed control. just wanted to know if any of you guys have messed around with this kinda thing. im newish to the brushless side of the house so any help or inputs would be helpful. im looking to get ito the 130-140 mph range for now.

130-140 is very very fast, start with around 75-100mph and go from there as you will need alot more than what I am about to list. I just finished converting my 8ight to a gt8 and its pretty painless.

(1) front shock tower LOSA1717 (alu) $14.93 or LOSA1718 (graphite) $24.99
(1) rear shock tower LOSA1738 (alu) $15.95 or LOSA1739 (graphite) $31.95
(1) set of front shock bodies LOSA5401 $24.89
(2) front shock shafts LOSA5411 $7.95
(1) front bumper set/body mounts LOSA4466 $9.95
(1) front bumper (foam) LOSA4467 $10.95
LOSA4465 Body Mount Set - Rear Body mount and posts
(1) Your choice of body, wheels and tires.

From there get some springs from RC4Less.com and drop your ride height.

For motors look into something like a 2200kv and try on 5S+ lipo. Gearing should be as close to 1:1 I would guess and may require a custom spur (not sure how low you can go.

hey thanks bro. I have seen a 44 tooth spur on ebay. as far as a good ratio for gearing goes im going to need a smaller spur snd a taller pinion gear correct. ya I was going to run a helicopter speed control so I can run a big battery and not burn anything up.
