Hard to tell really never got to enjoy both them on the track like I wanted to , never got to practice and one race I did get in was having radio problems and inadequate batteries and issues . have since got rid of the conversion selling it for same price as roller as what I paid for it with tekin system and sp parts like the fr&rr bearing carriers and braces and such . But IMO the full electric feels a lot smoother then the 2 speed with mechanical breaks . Wish I had more time but that's ok becuase I just picked up a gt2 nitro yesterday but don't have anything like starter box or glow plug igniter or fuel since I didn't have nitros. My only issues with nitro is no reverse , when I'm bashing in neighborhood I go off street into grass sometimes (if a car is coming ) and it'll get stuck having to walk to IT

Thanks for the information FLoJo. I agree that the Tekin is a much smoother system but having a Castle MMM/2200kv combo lying around that'll do the trick. I must admit the 458 does look nice in white but for me a Ferrari has to be in red

Does the Kyosho roll bar only fit the nitro version?

Thanks for the info Flojo...I agree, so far the full electric is butter smooth...I am hooked...I am doing full cvd upgrades to it right now and transfering all suspension mods that I run on my Nitro race car ! I expect it to run faster laps than my nitro !

I must be blind, I can not figure out where the roll bar would bolt up at.
I did some Googling and only the nitro cars had the roll bar.

So I guess Kyosho is not going to release the Ferrari F458 separately?

Probably not,, but you can get one without them releasing it and also comes with decals that the painted version won't have

I'm sure they will part some out on ebay but you can expect to pay over $100 sort of like painted corvette and aston bodies . I have,some gt1 ferrari bodies and they fetched over 200 on ebay I'm tempted,to throw my painted 458 just to see what somone will,pay for it .

I'm pretty sure the correct parts for the sway or anti-roll bars are IF117 (rear) and IFW104 (front).....

Jspeed, again, thank you very much.
I originally bought this roll bar for my car, the electric version.
It will not fit the electric GT2, only the nitro.
I am glad I can send it back to Amain

Orange Audi with Tekin Rx8 Gen2 / 2650KV sensor in 4S is the track racer
in sensor driving smoothness from throttle responses.
Red Audi with Castle Mamba2 / 2200KV in 6S just for bashing Top Speed Runs of 75 mph +, not so good for road course since just eating up tires!
Right now I am also getting this Team C's F458GT2 painted but of course be Italian RED.
