would the GPR tires fit an electric?

they'd be great for an electric touring chassis and even better for the new 1/10 electric pan cars coming out (if they fit!)

I have my eyes on this peugeot prototype body shell, but its for 235mm...

wonder how the car and GPR tires would look with it, maybe one would have to use extra spacers?

The Offset might not be right, but they will fit. They both use a 12mm hex...

We have already sold over 10 kits. I am an offroad racer that likes to occasionally run onroad. I've ran the Ofna CD-3 pro kit, but just can't get used to how twitchy it can be. It really took the fun out of racing onroad for me. I've been told by alot of onroad and offroad racers that I'd be a good 1/8th onroad driver. I can't unfortunately afford a new 1/8th car, and I do have 3 TC's sitting on the shelf. Maybe I'll take my older G4 and 220 it out and see if I can have fun driving it. Since it'll be basically a smaller version on an 1/8th scale...I like the look (always have), and I like the idea of it being a bit easier to drive, and then if it brings in more racers from other area's of our hobby, then in the long run you'll be bringing in more new racers, and reintroducing racers back into onroad...More racers..(Having) .. More Fun..(will cause) .. More will want to join in...

Just my .02...

Have Fun...Burn Nitro...

You can easily dial in a nitro sedan. I can dig up my files for a great CD3 pro setup as I use to have one and ran it with the MT12 turbo and RB V12 Rody roem. The CD3 pro in the right hands can be a track weapon despite the fact it's an old car.

That is what I have been trying to tell these guys a modified Tz.18 would give you one really fast 220mm outlaw.

There are 3 Kawahara GPR converted cars that was tested yesterday at CRYSTAL PARK RACE CLUB, one Serpent 720/JL EVO 3 .12 engine, one Kyosho RRR/JL EVO 3 .12 engine and one XRAY NT1/NOVA ROSSI .12 engine, all cars are amazing and can hang with most of the 8th scales.

Just saw a handful of people trying out the 220 conversion and got to watch an NT-1 and A 720 with a floating mount.... It was simply impressive how much corner speed this conversion carries.. Another note is that the cars were faster on the straight also since the car can handle a taller tire....

Default GPR

I ran one of the conversion kits yesterday that Team Kamikaze is talking about.
Simply put, WHAT A KICK IN THE ASS!
It was a blast driving the RRR with the conversion kit installed.
So much so, that I asked Team Kamikaze to order me another kit for my second RRR.
It is a totally different car. Does not even compare to the way a sedan handles.
If you want one, you need to contact Team Kamikaze, as they are going quick.
