Not a new idea... my inspiration came from Cameron... his car looks so sweet I figured maybe this is a way I can get rid of my Ultra GTP2E and keep it all in the traxxas family.
I bought stickychinsack's summit as a start platform. Not ideal as it will need diffs and bulkheads but the deal was too good to pass up. Ill sell off all the stuff I don't need from that truck.
Then, I bought the following from Tower and Amain:
-Full set of Slayer (not pro) arms
-Full set of Slayer (not pro) pushrods and toe links
-Ultra GTP2 Bumper and mount
-GH Racing single steering arm
-Kyosho McLaren GTR body for the GT2 (though it would be different than the Corvette)
-Tekno Sway bars
-Integy 6mm offset 17mm adapters
I have a couple sets of sweep racing wheels/tires and a full set of electronics including an XErun 150 amp ESC and 2050 KV Sensored motor along with a Hitec 7955 servo to go in it.
So, theres the plan as it sits so far. I still need the ERBE diffs and bulkheads, if anyone has any they want to part with, LMK. Ill use stock ERBE drive shafts and cut them to an appropriate length when I get the arms in. Everything else will remain stock.
Ill make sure i update with lots of pics as stuff comes in. It may be a while as I JUST ordered all this stuff today. Now I gotta sell the GTP2E before the wife freaks out. Hehe.
