very much indeed... lol.. im surprised my maiden voyage went as well as it did.. very promising platform..

HEY Don't call me an idiot I prefer ignorant fool. M06...........? I am not sure if it will be faster then an 05 or 3. Yes its promising but I think fred needs to give some allowance on that car in order to help getting more out there i.e. body's, 21 tooth pinion ( I know its not made for one but it would work), tires allow B's. Something to help this car become competitive with the 5 and 3. I was running the BMW body and it was pretty good but sure would be nice to run a swift or fiat on it I am not sure which ones would fit due to rear motor tollerances.

I know no one wants for sale posted here, but its beneficiary to TCS for atleast GT-1. There is this guy selling 2 GTB's one working and one not for $55 bucks. Just thorwing it out there because i know there is a shortage of TCS legal speedos and where can you get better customer support than Novak right?
Anyways here's the link http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...trol-sale.html

The bad speedo can be "rebuilt" basicaly traded for the newest GTB for a $60 dollar charge. The new GTB is a great speedo and I got beat with it last weekend So it must be that much better

LoL, im gonna neeed that back. I don't want to Get beat by it twice, and Orlando what happened is that I had sent mine in and I borrowed Kevins so Timmy wanted to run so Max picked up the new one from Novak and then beat me with my own speedo, and it is a Very good speedo, I felt it was alot faster almost LRP feel to it. You get it from trading in an old one and paying a charge

Nice to know that there is No Difference Between Spec Speedos In GT1.

There is when you are using an XBR with nonprogrammable reverse so its has it full time versus a GTB witch is meant for racing

All cars last weekend were between 29-33mph. The GTB isn't like a LRP as in speed wise it just has that crisp clean feel when you get on the throttle that the XBR just doesnt have. When it comes down to it, I think its the driver that needs to hold there own out there, heck I did

like Max says
thats just my 2$

For those that are looking to make their FF03s look more "modern," we got some Integra and JAS Motorsports Civic bodies in.

HSV-010 and Miata bodies too!

Pete, no offense intended.

I just find it interesting that after all the hoo-ha about making GT1 a non-speedo/non-motor event, a well respected racer and national champ says that the new GTB has a feel like the LRP (his words, not mine). Since that speedo is now outlawed I felt a request for clarification was reasonable, and appreciate Christian's expanded explanation.
