    I repowered my Red Caboose GP9s using the gorgeous P&D Hobbies kit with the brass trucks, but it ran too fast and drew too many amps. I didn’t like the plastic underframe and I ultimately chose the FS360 Aluminum frame. I decided to give the adjustable drives a shot because I wanted a more realistic speed and to reduce my amp draw. These were the answer to my problem. So far, I have done 5 conversions using FS360 frames and adjustable drives. I am very happy with the results.
