But from what I can figure, either my shafts set up (can't even be used on a standard slash because the jam the diff at half way compressed shock) or Tekno axles, and your shafts may just cut it. Here's my mod with the arm level, steering turned full for max amount out of the cup

    There its jamming the diff.... if yours is to long, this may be the way to go.
    i just recieved those cvd's (picture above) and yep they are way too long now that i mated it with the XO-1 stub axles, its hitting the diff output shaft. so now i'm going with your route, time to hunt for tekno cvd's lol.

    here is my cvd (losi ten-t) that i was hoping it would be the right fit, turns out to be to long that its hitting the diff output shaft

    i'm very excited today cause my tekno M6 CVD and XO-1 knuckles came in the mail but, i set it aside.....my boys wanted to go to disney land. now, that i'm home, i quickly start taking things apart......and this is what i got.

    stub axles (top tekno | bottom XO-1)


    rear driveshaft (top tekno, bottom XO-1)


    front (top XO-1, bottom tekno)


    i'm using the XO-1 stubs to give me extra length to make-up with the longer arms but the result is not what i expected to be.

    The protrac arms add a total of 8mm. I don't have the 2 too compare but its 4mm per side, out from stock. Are those the tekno m6 protrac bones? They have the bit extra but I don't know it it would be enough .......... what about the Tekno shafts that reaper uses on a protrac pedes? I'll give his mod a look, see if its do-able

    What is the setup you have in the mocked up picture? I am using hot racing 17mm adapters, which are the same offset as the traxxas 17mm adapters. If I use the RC solutions arms with stock hubs and the 17mm adapters and the same on road buggy tires as you, will they fit with the PF8 GT body like it does in your picture? Thanks.

    if you use the RC Solutions arms and the slash/rally 17mm adapters it will pass over the wheel wells. you need the pro trac arms to get the right width.

    Awesome run. That sucker is flying. I changed my gearing a couple weeks ago but have yet to run it. Nothing but sour weather and sick family.

    that looks great , I think with the protrac arms and 17mm axle adapters it will fit a 325-330 mm 1/8 body perfectly at the wheels wells .
    Now im tempted to try this and see how it performs against the gtps and dm1s that race 1/8 onroad
    XO-1,SLASH 4X4 ,SLASH 2WD , 2/RUSTLER

    I knew you would figure it out and find a solution. Let me know how those axles hold up.

    will the xo1 hexes push the wheels out further , thought the protrac arms would cure that , i believe the slash 2wd 17mm front hexes work also unless there same as xo-1 lol

    the XO-1 hexes put me right at the wheel well inner side.

    not familiar with slash 2wd 17mm hexes. XO-1 hexes use bigger pin than the slash 4x4 hexes.

    So let me see if I'm following this correctly...
    You're using protrac arms, tekno protrac length cvd's, xo-1 axles and xo-1 hex's, correct?
    I am building a gt8 based off of my LCG slash 4x4 and found out the the new slash cvd's BARELY have any spline left, maybe a few mm's at best.
    Very nice build, very nice write up!

    yes sir, you got it. watch out when buying the proline protrac arms, they have the older version (i think) which is the same lenght as the stock arm. look for part # start with 6082 not 6062. as for the tekno cvd's....buy the whole set than buying it piece by piece unless you have some spare parts already.
    one last thing dont forget to buy the XO-1 dust boots, its what hold the pin and keep the stub/cvd together.

    This turned out great, perfect fit. You have me wanting to build something similar. How did you build your gtr shocks? What tires and wheels are you using? I thought about picking up the treaded sweep racing tires, but I am worried they won't last long.

    My GTR shocks are from my revo, i shortened it by adding 2 piston shocks inside the shock shaft. the springs are from Jato rear blue (1.6PPi). i got my set of wheels/tires from here.....>http://www.ebay.com/itm/310489388253...84.m1438.l2648.
    i get plenty of runtime with these and yet have no problem blowing up, even on 6s.

    well guys, i could'nt help myself....i swap over my MMM/2200 back in and this time i will run it lol. the last time i mounted it, i did'nt run it due to weak driveline (stock). this time, now that i have installed tekno cvd's, XO-1 diffs, XO-1 carriers/knuckles and 17mm hexes, i think i'm good to run this......


    i have to drill a hole on my reciever box for my chassis brace to go thru.....

    I would prob build a slash also , but id love to throw a 2650 run it on 4s-5s and see how much lighter it actually is then a real GT8 onroad , i have a xo-1 and GTP but this thing would totally be sleeper status . Do you think the stock shafts would take the power of a mm2650

    i'm gonna say not a chance, maybe you get a few runs with it. i have my stock driveshaft running on MMP/2800kv and it start to show some sign of wearing at the joints.

    have you weight the two cars XO-1 and GTP with lipos on by any chance?
    i'm curiuos how much weight difference with the two.

    its late and yet here i am missing around with stiffening the body. i come up with some spare parts laying around, with some cutting and trimming....works great.

    rear side body post.


    front body support. rally bumper skewer thru the chassis brace just like the reciever box lol. the height is enough to contour with the underside of the body.

    Hey I was looking at your chassis brace and seen you wrapped it with electrical tape. Maybe use heat shrink instead? I think it would look way cleaner. I totally dig your skewer. LOL

    I'm going to see if I have a good enough signal to view your youtube vid. I seen you posted it last night. It's a bummer we can't view at work.
