Gotta admit. This class looks interesting.

But, where to start.

Which chassis to use as a base to build on, which shocks and wheels/tires ?

Is there a thread for rank beginners for this class ?

I am famalier with the Mugen MX5/6 cars.

thanks

You don't need a thread for beginners.. This one will suit you just fine. Plenty of info and were all here to help. As for platform.. The no brainers is the Ofna GTP2e.. The work is already done for you. Next easiest would be the Losi since they have the L8ght which is a dirt oval. If you want to be more creative then got for the Mugen, Associated HPI etc. The catch with those cars is the shock towers and body mounts.

Let's hope that Kyosho is releasing a new Ferrari body with the GT3!
Will certainly be a 458 or 599xx and when they're at it to a Porsche.

This is my wish list!
Ferrari 458 and 599xx and 575GTC.
BMW M3 GT
Megane Trophy
Nissan GT-R
Ford Mustang 2011

I'd love to see the 599. It's the first time that the bigger Ferrari blows away the 400 series in looks.

LOL!!! Don't worry Bro, I've learned that whenever I see you or Jai approaching, I just move to the side. LOL!!! I'm hoping to get her a little dirty this Sunday. See you in Corona.
