    ShanenooX GT upgrades

    Hello everyone. I just got my GT yesterday and immediately dropped in a sidewinder 3 5700 system. Wow. I used a traxxas 3s 25c batt and it hauls! I'll try and get a video up soon.


    I can see this car is going to be fun. I'm normally a SC or MT guy but I had a road car 20 yrs ago. I can't wait to see what upgrades will be coming out. The only thing, besides the castle system, the LHS had for me to swap out was a C7 Daytona body. Hopefully ill get that ready in the next few days.
    Went to buy a lipo, walked out with a XMAXX.

    Thats awesome, I too went with the Castle 5700kv, but running the 29t on 3s is nutty.

    The contact foams tires I ordered work fantastic, they dont balloon at all and they have really good grip.

    Haven't had any problems yet. But I've seen others with that issue.

    I havent had any issues with this. You might have killed a couple of input bearings or something.

    They are called "contact foams" I ordered them on Ebay. They were $10 a set, so reasonable. I saw them in another post in the GT forum. Great suggestion.
