Default OFNA GTV2E PRO “ON-ROAD”

I WOULD LIKE TO START THIS THREAD FOR ON-ROAD RACING ONLY.

I have a GTV2e PRO coming tomorrow, what set-up changes should I make if any to the stock set-up? MOTOR/ESC/BATTERY/TIRES: Tekin 2650KV, Tekin RX8, 4S, Sweep 50e. I also have Tekin 2050KV, 1900KV and OFNA mounted slick tires.

Default Rebuild diffs and shocks

Yo, make sure that you rebuilt the diffs and the shocks. The diffs come loaded with grease. Therefore clean all that old grease and use diff fluids ( 10k front, 7k center, 5k rear). Good start point. Shocks (50-80wt in front, 30-50wt in rear). Hope this helps!

Thanks, I had one issue switching my motor/ESC to reverse.

Is that a little thin on the oils? I've seen a couple Nitro setups that are using 500k in the front. I'm curious because people seem to be all over the place with oils. I know much of it has to do with personal preference but being direct drive no clutch for electric I'm a bit lost.

Yes that is entirely too light on everything!!
  • start off at 1k CST on shock oils with stock pistons
  • 1500CST with RCShox 2 stage (highly recommended)
  • 500k on front dif**
  • 100k on centerdif
  • 10k on rear dif

Setup wise:
  • 2*front toe out
  • 4* front camber
  • 3*rear camber
  • 2.5* rear toe (RCShox RF pivot block)
  • stock antisquat
  • Stock swaybars
  • highest RC adjustment in front
  • lowest in rear
  • 9f/10R ride height

Upgrades that you should consider:
  • RCShox 2 stage pistons
  • RCShox ballbearing ackerman bar(lessens slop and optimizes the ackerman effect)
  • RCShox mini arm braces
  • TeamC 10* C hubs
  • TeamC aluminum chassis braces


** when building the difs you really want the front dif to be as close to a spool as you can get. IF you actually spool it it works the best but wears out the drive pins quickly. So when you build the front dif use 500k fluid and double shim the spider gears, on the flip side you want the rear to be as free as you can get it so remove the spider gear shims.
Another tip is to completely fill the dif with fluid , it will stay more consistent and last much longer.

As most of you know i have been working with this platform for almost 2 years now!

here is a vid of this setup on a VERY loose track, i realize its nitro but the tendencies are the same. i was also driving a bit aggressive hence the rear stepping out but even when it steps out its very controllable.
BTW that body is for sale 75.00 shipped and that was the only time it was ran!

GT-V2e comes with 10,000 in the front diff, 5,000 in the rear, 800 shock oil, spool in the center. I need to pick up some diff oils. Are you using droop/down stop?

I run the arms level front and rear, not a fan of droop unless on a very high bite track.

no more bodies unfortunately, cost way too much to import them in and takes too long to move them.......
I meant the actually painted body in that video!

I put a set of Ofna 17m mounted slicks Part#86504 on my RTR and they made a big difference over the stock tires. The only setup changes I made droop 0 front 10 rear, ride height 10 front 11 rear. My pro car has not hit the track yet.
