Most of those Xray pics are from like 2007, old news, custom made parts in Europe; not factory. Spoke with "Jr" about it way back when, maybe they'll make them now.

No need for 2 gears on the smaller tracks. I see a lot of tracks in the Us where the cars are shifting in the last 20ft of the straight. I would guess that if you are shifting just once in a lap, you could be better off with a single speed. Has anybody tried this body...
may not be the best for for straight up on road but it would be cool for rally.http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ear-Body-Slash

Something similar you see on one of our local tracks, but on my very personal point of view, 2 speeds helps a lot and if you are on that situation, go down 1-2 teeth on pinion, or go up 1-2 teeth on spurs and you will be using the full power that a reduction box as 2 speed can give you.

Thats my $ .00001

cya !

Maybe those drivers should learn how to tune a speed box...
Their clutch bell have too big pinions and spring are too much stressed...

I agree, if a racer can properly adjust his gearing 2-speed is better.

It's an excellent track and big enough for these big cars. They really put a lot of work in it over the last couple of years. I've watched its progress from the off-road track, but now I finally have an on-road to run on it.

Going out there today to get some video of my DM-1 as a matter of fact.

If you read the description, this body of for the SCT trucks, not GT cars. It will be a bit too small for the GT1/DM-One Spec cars. It would barely cover the center part of the car much less the wheels. I have already seen one mounted on a Slash; definitely a unique looking body.
