    RE: *~ Official RC10GT2 Thread ~*

    they wont fit the kit version with the quick changing tires but they do fit on the RTR version.
    the ones that come on the RTR are a bit diffferent then the older ones. the new ones have an inset lugnut design instead of the surface mound like the old ones.

    the very first thing i did was put on new tires so ihad to get new rims and used the old gt rims no problem at all

    also if your in a jam and your Local shop does not have some of the gt2 parts I am finding that ALOT of the B4 parts go right on with very little or no modification. heck i even used a rear hub carrier from the B4. worked like a charm.

    RE: *~ Official RC10GT2 Thread ~*

    Thanks for the help so far. I decided to get the rtr version and had quite a few T3/B3 style rims and tires but this may give me an excuse to buy new tires.
    When all else fails, aim for the quarter panel.

    I never seen the RTR come with a .12 only the .15????

    The NTC3 RTR came with a .12, maybe they mixed it up at the factory and someone out there got an NTC3 RTR with a .15 engine[sm=confused.gif].

    RE: *~ Official RC10GT2 Thread ~*

    wide open, we all have had this problem, and to anyone thinking of getting a gt2 just take them out and install 1.0 springs. some of our racers with the gt2 had them break on motor break in. they were just a bad batch, bit i would rather spend $1.50 on new springs than deal with that mess. I was able to get the updated gt2 and have had no issues with it. It is a great piece and i love racing when i get the time, i am normally just watching but i have raced it 4-5 times this indoor winter season.

    Are they using the NTC3 style clutch now? I always wondered why they weren't running that in the GT...

    thanks, it was a simple paint job, but i think it turned out well. thanks for the part number, i put it into my wishlist on tower and if these ones break ill order that set. that .12 TZ is an insane motor. i have a feeling its out performing the use of the transmission. i can get the mixture on the high end adjusted well, but it refuses to go above a certain speed, even if i add more throttle. im in the process of limiting the throttle back to see if i can find the spot where everything maxes out. its kind of a strange issue to describe, and i hope im doing the right thing to keep from tearing up my tranny! its all trial and error i guess.

    the TZ drops right in no problem. the only thing you really need is the short crank version and the adapter nut.

    RE: *~ Official RC10GT2 Thread ~*

    Questions about the stock engine.

    Is the stock engine that comes on the RTR a decent one? I'm not needing a full blown mod Nova Rossi or anything like that. Too much HP gets you the freestyle award with the best donuts on the front strech. On my sedan late model, I ran a nice 19 turn,(no pooch), and won points with it and was pretty much the fastest of the field all summer but if I put a good mod in it, it wasn't real predictable even when rolling on the throttle. I mean, if the stock engine is reliable, I'll run it but never delt with a rear exhaust motor, just side in my limited running of nitros. This is on a hard packed dirt track that can get kinda slick after sundown. Thanks for any and all help.

    PS If there is a way to make it a little faster and efficient than out of the box, that would be nice too.
    When all else fails, aim for the quarter panel.

    RE: *~ Official RC10GT2 Thread ~*

    youll be more than happy with the .15 it is very reliable and keeps a good tune. and because if your racing you can use the rtr motor in most cases so id run it til you decide you need more power which with all nitro drivers it doesnt take long to need more. good luck and in my personal opinion is the rtr is more than enough you can always add upgrades as you go. ill ive done to mine so far is the quick change hubs in the rear.

    with the stock motor all you have to do is take the restrictor ou and you will have all the power you will need. just run that until it wont run anymore and if it were me id probly still get the same engine. its a great engine rtr or not

    RE: *~ Official RC10GT2 Thread ~*

    So, I am kind of confused about these engines that fit the GT2. Wide Open's TZ he listed has a really short crank, one of the shortest I have seen, so will the Dynamite cut crank ASC version with the NTC3 clutch nut work in the GT2? I know it is a cheap motor, but I have had great personal experience with these engines so that is what I want to go for. I really do not need to have the fastest engine, but want a .12 that I can race at my local track with. This would be my first kit too, so I want to make sure that I won't need anything when I sit down to build it. I was planning on getting the DX3.0 and using those servos, atleast at the beginning. And then all I pretty much need is an engine, thus my question.

    RE: *~ Official RC10GT2 Thread ~*

    Sorry for double posting, but after reading the "GT2 Engines" thread, and hearing what ThunderbirdJunkie and Wide Open had to say I am looking at the ST12R and the SH 12. But the problem with the SH is that it has a slide carb, can that work? But then again it comes with an SG shaft. I am so confused. All I pretty much want is a .12 that will work on the GT2 without taking total modification and costing an arm and a leg. Here are the links to the two new prospects.

    [link]http://www.stsmicroengines.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=12&products_id=22[/link] and now when I looked the sts has a slide carb too, and it says 3 needles. I have only dealt with 2 so that is kind of overwhelming. What are you guys using?
