    Yeah the apr2014 code popped up as I was checking out.

    Shipping of these 1/8 bodies is always ridiculous due to the size of the package. Weight wise it's miniscule..

    I really want another DP8 GTP to paint as a street going McLaren.... Which is also ridiculous, as last time I counted my clear bodies are well in the double digits. More work than I have time for. What's the matter with me???

    I use to be even worse when I use to race on road RC


    I really like what you have done with the body and your chassis in general Humay, in case I haven't already said that.

    I've been considering purchase of a real on road 1/8 car, but it seems they are made for racing, and not the parking lot bash speed runs we primarily do here. Looking at the designs the required spare parts list would be significant compared to a modified Rally.

    Yours however seems to be the ultimate on road basher!

    thanks ViperZ that means a lot to me and the way you put all your cars together are just straight out neat and somewhat very professional, that just to show how much time you really put into it

    I've also wanted to get a true 1/8 onroad car but then I don't really race, I'm more into just have fun out there and let people know what a true Hobby grade RC is all about and not just any ordinary store brand RC. I know when the moment they see this thing fly, they automatically want one but hesitate when they hear how much they cost lol. this hobby is just the same as wrenching a 1:1 race car but the cost is way low (if you think about it) and no one gets hurts well..... almost no one

    It's well deserved Humay, the level of detail in your car is amazing! Love the integration of the XO aerodynamics. Your car is the bench mark around here


    Thanks for your words as well. I certainly do enjoy tinkering and putting round with these. Yes I have to admit even more so (at times) than with the full size cars, the gratification can be almost the same, with Much less expense and effort

    However it is a lot of fun going to car meets and events with a full size car, with other gear heads. Its much the same in everyone appreciating each others efforts and hard work

    I agree with you, it is a lot of fun going to car meets and events with a full size car, nothing like showing your work to others and that appreciation you get from them is priceless

    GULP!!!!!!!!!! What an incredibly gorgeous car! The color schema on this is STUNNING! I know RCs are for running and having fun, but this equally deserves a spot on a revolving car stand surrounded by velvet ropes under bright lights!

    BTW, you may be able to eek a bit more speed out of her if you align the slots on the screw caps for the wing fore and aft.

    Humayrayakongkinaon, you are among several on this forum that are an inpspiration.

    Thanks for all the kind words guys, I'm just glad to be part of the rc community and share our love with what we can do/build rc (Go Traxxas!! ). I'm always open to help as much as I can to our fellow rc'er.

    That's a nice combination of colors Humay! I see what you are saying regarding the dark orange. When I have to spray light before dark, I will back the light with silver as it seems to work even better than white. It retains the color correctness of the color coat, while providing a nice opaque layer, blocking the dark color that follows.

    Still, good to hear you are going to run it


    I contacted Nitrohouse on the weekend and they said my X3's were ready to ship, but it was not a problem to add a DP8 as well, so they did with no additional cost to shipping. Kudos to Tim at Nitro House!

    Thats nice you got to contact them first before they get it shipped, its always nice to stock up extra body, just incase. You probably have shelves full of car/truck bodies I only have 4 total and all on-road GT8, my first two pf8 are trashed, my dtm I gave it away, I sure keeping my dp8, its an amazing body and very aerodynamically designed, served me well without any blowover. X3 gt is also very aerodynamically designed.

    Great to see you kept the shinny side up!

    Yeah, the more I look at the DP8 vs the X3, the more I'm reminded of how much I love the lines of the DP8. I'm glad they were able to send me one as I really want to do a single color McLaren. In fact I want to do a single color X3 as well, but we'll see. I'm getting ahead of myself, as you already stated... I have shelf full of clear bodies, one day for a laugh I'll take a picture for you

    Your cars look absolutely amazing! How hard was it to fit that body on there. I'm thinking of jumping on the rally bandwagon! But I'm definitely more a fan of the sporty bodies!

    ^^^thanks guys ^^^

    @daniil92a you need an XO-1 shock tower to set low, I even have to shave/file the rear tower to clear few mm and tape the body from getting the paint scratched off, if I could use the front tower for the rear it would be a perfect height but no because the front tower will lean forward. it was design to have an angle because of the front bulkhead has a kick up.

    here's the stock XO-1 shock tower F/R


    front design to have an angle due to the bulkhead kick up


    rear tower shave/file on the right

    I noticed something different with the last few runs, slipper clutch slipping a lot but, not as I recall hearing it when I had the 2200 in there so, I opened it up and find out the clutch arms one is cracked.


    thinking about buying the HR ones to match with the motor mount

    still was not happy/satisfied with the rear shock tower so back to the drawing board and come up with this

    I cut the upper part front shock tower and the rear shock tower like so


    side by side mock up, sure look the same right? but.....


    flip it over then I get the clearance I wanted



    now I just have to shortened my suspension by adding blue damper inside the shock body.

    man, if I know someone with milling machine I would have them make my own rear shock tower lol.

    Edit: I bought the HR HD clutch just like yours ViperZ

    now that I got the rear tower low I have to lower my shocks by adding this blue damper.

    one in compared to without damper inside

    I drill the shock piston hole a bit bigger by 1/16. this is all experimenting guys, you don't have to if you don't want to
    I did this with my 1/8 XO-1 and like how it rebounced back, of course with thicker oil (no exact number on shock oil as I've mixed some of them, vary from 50k down to 2k) I judge them by tilting the bottle of which one is thinner or thicker


    with the shock lowered now I then use my REVO silver spring, before was summit spring double yellow.

    ever wonder what differ from XO-1/REVO/Summit GTR to Slash 4x4 aside from their shaft length?

    REVO GTR uses locknut to secure the piston while slash GTR uses E-clip sandwiching the piston.

    You know I have never taken apart my Ultimate's GTR, but have on Rally-1 and the XO-1. I would have never thought the Ultimate would be different.

    I could be wrong on this though, I just heard from someone. as far as I know if its design as a GTR more likely the same. maybe I'll buy a set (slash 4x4 GTR) to see for myself

    here's my HR slipper system SD


    side by side comparison with the old REVO slipper system HD


    I noticed the pin has a play/room compared to the stock (stock edge straight flat, HR rounded edge and a hair longer)

    dig thru by tool box and found a pin that is a tad bit longer to fit so I dremel it about less than 1mm

    after I dremel the pin (what I should have done was rounded each end to fit snugly)

    Metallic clutch pad

    thickness of the pad to ware out,

    I keep the blue rubber damper but I have to take out all 3 Teflon washers

    all done

    Looks good! I too dug out longer pins for mine. One thing you should notice is there is very little back and forth play with this clutch, its makes a nice and tight gear box.
