I know One eighth racers has a Facebook page. The web site and Facebook isn't exactly up to date. If you need info on them let me know.

Sorry hijacking this thread but have you guys overseas thought about using gasoline engines in gt cars or even tested it already. They seem to become popular as [buggy/truggy/monster] rtr models like HPI and Losi emerged the market.

I think there is certainly potential although haven't tried a gasoline engine yet in person. Compared to buggies the increased amount of components shouldn't hurt because cars aren't going up and down in jumps.

What do you think? The next big hit after electric GTs (that never really picked up?) Cheers

Never thought about using those new "gas" engines in a GT car but great idea Mika. I have a spare chassis sitting around (GT2) that would be a perfect guinea pig for it (out of the Mika "mad scientist" lab school of thinking).

Mika,

Don't know why Electric GT has not picked up. I did your conversion of an Inferno VE buggy to a GT and love it. Race it in Lincoln, NE a couple of years ago and won first time out. Electric GT makes you pay a lot more attention to gearing and set-up. As you and I know, many in the r/c community are fickle about what they will and won't participate as far as classes. No more "fun with playing with r/c cars", it is now "got to win at all cost"

Hi Juan,
Yeah why not indeed to try it out! I am excited about the possibilities. Would be really nice to hear about them in action - if you have the chance. I prolly try to do it myself at some point.
Electric racing, I've enjoyed it too, but maybe folks wanna see smoke and noise when talking about GT's. Cheers bro
ps. I hear you about winning at any cost..

Mika,

I have talked to the head of the statewide series in Texas and have been given permission to run/promote Electric GT this year. Was told that I need to get at least 5 guys to make it a legitimate class. So, I am going to give a shot in my little neck of the woods.

Great, I'm sure you can find at least five racers, no? But if not.. then maybe it is not really not picking up..
I heard from local folks that watching the NeoX eBuggy finals the drivers weren't really loving it.. dunno. Personally driven both on national level, the eBuggy and nitro, cant't really say.. both were fun.. and demanding (also cost wise). Maybe the nitro is a bit more appealing.. and this is the reason I was thinking of gasoline GT's
