Earlier this year I had mine out. Didn't get a chance to make it to a race. I love any 2wd nitro though so I'm biased.

Thinking of building my FTGT2 truck back again for some nitro fun. The Mega engine has seized due to long term of unuse. Looking around for a 12 sized SG shaft pull start engine for convenience but seems like such engines are totally extinct nowadays?
My nitro accessories like starter box and glow heater etc were long gone when I stopped nitro cars years ago.

Default Trouble Finding the Correct Hexes for Front Axles

Hey,

So I finally found the axles to convert my GT2 to hex front wheels. The issue is none of the hexes seem to fit correctly. Either there hub spacing is to wide, making the front track width wider than the rear. Or I end up needed to use like 10 shims on each axle. Here is the parts list that I used.
Parts:
Steering Block ASC9880
Front Axles ASC7854
Bearings 3/16x3/8 ASC3977
12mm Wheel Hex ASC9892 - I believe this is for the rear on the SC10. It is way to wide. I need them grinded down to about 6mm thick. I think they are 9 or 10mm. But the pin and bearing clearance is fine.

So I tried these Hexes, 12mm Slim Wheel Hex ASC9883. The pin slot is way to shallow on these and I need like 10 shims each side to fill the gap. I actually drilled the pin slot out so they go deeper, but now if I tighten the wheels to much it binds the bearings.
Anyone using this upgrade parts list and what Hexes did you run?

Here are some pictures of the slim hex I drilled through:



Here are the larger hexes I tried to grind down. The surface was hard to get properly flat and square to the body of the hex so the wheels are super wobbly with these on. But this is what I need with out my hack job.

So as a follow up from my earlier post, I did finally find hexes that fit properly. They ended up coming from ST Racing Concepts. They are for the SC10 rear, just like the ones from my original parts list. I did not just need hexes that were about 6mm thick, I also needed ones that let the axle pin sit very deep. This lets the hex sit much closer to the hub, and gives me a front track width similar to the rear. The whole process was kinda painful, so I made a video going over everything I went through. Here is the link:

Just got this in the mail. I have been a fan of the original RC10gt and just about finished refurbishing one that is like. Ew when I stumbled upon this one. Not sure if I should build it or put it away for another 10 years. Probably not too many remain unbuilt!

Ther original first gen gt was limited on clutch gearing. The chassis was weak. I solved that problem. I made a one-piece motor mount to accept 18tooth clutch bells with the stock spur gear. it added more strength to the chassis. The second gen Gt fixed the chassis weakness and added more adjustment for higher clutch bells. The third gen truck stretched the length The truck is awesome with a .18cvr.

Can't wait to get out and run some 2wd nitro trucks... I probably won't race my GT2 much anymore, as I have two Ignite trucks, but it will see the track some even if not being raced hard or often... it raced last fall, Brian Eiter of HRCR borrowed it and had it totally ripping during the Dave Mapston Memorial Race in Spokane last fall...now he is going to host a 10th scale only Race and have the Gas Truck Nats there in July...

picture is from fall of 2023...
