I just picked up the Ferrari GT from Stomer Hobbies, They are selling the Ferrari, and Aston cheaper than anyone else I've seen. I Haven't ran nitro in several years, all my stuff is Brushless EP and mostly lipos, even my planes went the BL route. After I seen one running around on youtube, I was impressed. Mine will be used solely for bashing on the street, my only worry is parts availability. No one sells sells Kyosho in my area, aside from Stormer, who else sells Kyosho parts?

When I order Kyosho parts direct from Kyosho, my last two orders have been shipped from Ultimate Hobbies. Next time I need parts, I'll be trying Ultimate directly.

There are many that would tell you that you need to buy an aftermarket tranny. I have had great success with the stock transmission and gears. You have to adjust the mesh differently than any other mesh you have set. There needs to be NO SLOP between the pinion and the spur. The mesh is set tight... not so that it binds... just real tight. Do not worry about the gears seating... they will seat fine in a lap or two.

I have also found that on the GT2 that the engine mounts will slip a little bit if you have a frontal impact. This slight movement will allow the gear mesh to loosen and there goes the gears. I went to a one piece engine mount and stopped that.

Of course the B versions of the 40-46 is suppose to be out of a new material... I have a set coming and can report on them later... but this discussion has happened several times on the GT thread.

Think tight mesh and your teething woes will lessen.

Here's the new Kyosho GT tranny - good quality and Evolva -like lighweight construction. Fully ballraced.

GT3 will have this out of the box plus a .25 installed.

How long is that tranny with both outdrives attached?

It's a drop-in to a GT2. Roughly about the same dimensions as before (i.e. with the previous tranny). Have a GT1 electric Ferrari, so I cannot compare, sorry.

Mika,

I saw on the other forum the two-speed pinion gears you got for your electric conversion. Where did you find/get that from? To run it as an electric and not lose the two-speed capability would be fantastic!!

Correct JLock - I got the shaft from RC Monster. Pinions are from Kyosho Evolva.

Thanks. I have checked out their site before and did not know that they had the shaft to do that.

Thanx MikaR for the response.

Here's another questions. Does anyone have a rough measurement of the length of the front and rear center diff mounts? How far from the front mount to the rear mount? I'd like to know from center of front screws to center of rear screws if possible.

Thanx if anyone can measure for me.

With the combo you mentioned above, try taller clutch bell gears (17/21) and a new Warrior body.
