The torque is very high-spinning all tires at launch is no problem. Gearing is whatever is available in the front and rear diffs. The chassis is 3mm G-10 from Penguin RC. The sponge in two of the tires has already separated. I hope it's fast enough(top speed), I have no way of really knowing. I'm waiting for the LHS to get the springs I want for the shocks-Kyosho IGW004-8022. The LHS has to wait until they have $100(cost) of things they need so they can order-what a PITA. All up weight is 7lbs 2 oz. Don

Here are some pics, RTR minus the RX.













That car look great.. I just order a few of the BMW's.

Actually, the BMW M3 body is from Kyosho, one of the pre-finished bodies for the IGT1, standard 325mm wheelbase. They are now discontinued, that's why you don't see them much. Happened to find this one on Ebay still new-in-package.
