In stock form it's a little bit bigger than most GT8, it's technically a GT7. So long as its not unlocked of max speed, I guess it would be raced against, otherwise it would be a missile and potentially dangerous.

I do like the fact that it is a dedicated GT chassis instead of a conversion

That is an expensive experiment. I would guess it would need a lot of tuning to take the corners. I'd like to see that.

Expensive for me, YES!

I was hoping someone who has already laid out the cash could do a comparison and try setting it up to go left and right.

As I would like to see it run on a track...

Talking

I'm working on setting mine up for the track. Planning to run it on 4s. Should keep it at 70mph on the straights. Switched the stock springs for revo springs which seems to help a lot. The nice thing with this car vs my other gt cars is I can run twin batteries in parallel to double the runtime. Some pics -

Very nice pics, it make the car look different for some reason.

Please keep us posted on your progress and findings...

Thumbs up Color your world with speed!

The Ipanema 325 GT race body fits all short wheelbase GT and Rally Game chassis. It's shape is designed using CAD and FALCON 3D wind tunnel simulation programs to achieve a balance between low drag coefficient and the down force needed for greater stability at high speeds.

one of they guys at our track is running an sc8 and is extremely fast. Not really converted though since he still runs a truck body.
