We looked at the gear ratio and I believe we are going to get a change for it also as an option, so the OFNA product as option is great for both V2 and TC.

Downside, pinion/spurs relation is too short, i mean over 40-45 meters straight and it gets too short and we didnt had other options to test.

Now, we put the 2 speed box of the GTV2 on the old DM1S ... WOOOOOOOOOWWWWW on 16/20 pinions was already faster than the longer ratio of the DM1S ... i will race test it this coming weekend.

regards,
That's because the internal ratio in the GT-V2 is much shorter despite the spur/pinion spread. For example the GT2's internal ratio is 3.30:1 vs. 4.30:1 on the GT-V2. This translate into much taller gearing given the same spur/pinion spread---thus more top end.

One way issue is solved.

been two weeks now and about 2 gallons with no issues.

We are trying to get the factory to include a higher quality bearing in the kit

By all means yes, mainly because of the flat front with no kickup. The steering is much better especially on power. They also do not wear front tires nearly as bad as the Serpent.

I think you have that backwards unless i am misunderstanding. a 4:30 has less top end than 3:30 given the same spur/pinion.
In my testing I am quickly finding out that the stock spurs are to small for on road engines but good for Off road engines. I am running the optional 43/47 with an XZR and its a missile!

Yes, my math is correct but i inverted shorter and taller. Basically, the GT-V2 lacks top end compared to the GT2 due to the shorter (4:30) internal ratio (given the same spur/pinion combo).

The Team C is the only car out right now that competes with the Serpent for a top of line line kit. I've had both the short an long chassis and loved them both. Coming from an Inferno and going into a Team C you will not believe how much this car turns in. The car is absolutely planted and with the right setup it is a force to be recconed with. The Long chassis lacks a bit of that turn in but still far out does the inferno. Quality wise the kit is amazing, every little tweak you were doing to your Inferno is already implemented on the Team C.

In comparison to a Serpent I have to lean in the corner of the Serpent. Yes after my run with the Team C to Include a 5th place A Main at the Timezone GP I decided to go with the Cobra GT. Currently where I race there was 4-5 with the Team C cars and no one with the Cobra due to a local hobby shop carrying the Team C in store. I decided to grab a Serpent of of Amain and I've been nothing but impressed. The Team C you can still see the 8th buggy, the Cobra GT is stricktly race car with every detail well though out and purpose built. Parts are much easier to get a hold of; for now anyway. I'm really hoping OFNA takes the Team C and gives it the option parts and replacement support it needs to take off.

The Team C car is a solid platform that with the right support and will be knocking on Serpents door very soon. If you are looking to change chassis in your GT this is a solid choice with a promising future. Currently there are some quality issues with the one ways and this has been going on since launch. I contacted the USA representative for Team C and was told this was being addressed almost a year ago. We also have had some amusing miss-packed kits with missing or duplicate parts that inhibit you from completing your build. Looking forward with the backing of OFNA these issues are going to disappear and this kit is going to be awesome. Watch for this kit to be on the podium soon!

I am working with Roy right now and have already solved the shifting issues which turned out to only be a 4.00 higher quality one way bearing! nothing else has been changed I have also cured the turn in issue with the long chassis, and it wasnt really an issue just turned out to be really soft springs and some Roll center adjustments on the towers. I am now running Serpent springs front and rear as well as short shocks all the way around. The car is money right now!

V2 is coming soon and will fix all of the minor issues plus make some changes that will make it more of a dedicated on road setup. I do dis agree in that the Serpent is any more on road than the Team C, it has the same converted parts and still utilizes the same off road parts that the Team C does. Only differently converted part that i know of is the fact that it uses the same size front and rear shocks.

With OFNA grabbing the brand it will help mainly due to the numbers, this is really the first real growth year for the class so the more kits that sell the more development I get to do to the car. If all goes well the V2 will be perfect out of the box and then V3 will utilize some major changes! I will be running some prototype parts this weekend in Homestead at the nats so keep posted!!

What's up guys? I made a GT-V2e RTR out of the box on radar video on 4s/mini review. Check it out if you get bored. The rtr version definatley needs some tuning and decent tires. Stock tires make it a drift king.
