Check out this video I recorded on track with my setup. This is my Associated RC8.2e 1/8 buggy configured in GT8 chassis setup, but without the GT8 body and bumper/body mount (Photo of GT8 Body earlier in this thread). I have the GoPro mounted on the buggy body and found myself at a track I use to race 1/10 pan car on back in the day. I just happened to be passing by this town for a few days and had this car setup in my trunk... Well, because it is fun to take with me.

I knew the opportunity to grab footage I only dreamed of 20 years ago was too good to pass up on. Pleased to share the GT8 (sans body) FPV Footage.
Enjoy!

I'm currently using the HOBBYWING 1900KV 4268 Gen2 in my IGT8e on-road car. Has anyone tried the HW 3660 3200KV motor or the Tekin T8i 1950KV motor??
Thanks

Hello from France,
those motors are suitable for lighter off-road cars and short length tracks
They will "burn" because of the weight of our GT8e and the "permanent" on-road grip compared to "relative" grip of off-road...

Is 1900kv an appropriate kv rating for a 1/8 GT car with the intent of running on 6S?

Also, I wonder why this class hasn't moved to longer wheelbase chassis. I get that short wheelbase allows for more maneuverability, but longer wheelbase adds stability and allows for true to scale proportions. I plan on building a 360mm version of the serpent cobra gte 3.1 using a kyosho gt2 body.

Yes, 1900kV is good for 6s batteries.

The short wheelbase is "historic" because chassis were OffRoad based conveerted to OnRoad application.

For sure, "short" bodies are not so beautiful but, the brands are making good design now...
Team Titan Blitz GT2 (Ferrari 488 gimmicks...) and GT3 (McLaren 650s inspired), ProToForm 'Vette..... are almost nice.
