Im excited that out SWTour OVAL SERIES will be running a NoVAK 4300 Brushless class in '07. I'm sure these NEW 4cell ESC's will become very popular...can that upper cover be installed on the original GTB w/ the removal of the fan, etc?

Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for
2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

I see there are 2 red and 2 black wires at both end of the speedo...I think it still required a cap...not sure still the big one or a new smaller one just for 12th scale...

With the PT where it is I don't even know it that will work....

I was wondering if I could put the ball ends on the back of the servo saver and move the servo (mounts and all) forward about 1/4" and Drill new holes... Than might be all I need to get the GTB fully onto the Chassis....

I'd love to see a picture of the GTB and LRP next to each other....

Supposedly the new tekin ESC will run sensored motors also (I'm guessing without the sensor wires connected....)

Is it safe to remove the fan on the GTB if you´re using 5-cells in touring? Looking for saving weight...
