Check out their website link and ask where would be closes distributor to you.

Sweep P1L design for GT1 or GT2 in how far you cut the wheel base according to your chassis. You can see my picture and chassis is GT2.
I also have it on my Serpent GTE in GT1 Wheel base.

Since my GT2 VE is running great, always look for the edge in little more.
In suspension upgrade after SNR Graphite Shock Towers and Dragon Light weight chassis, now I am interest in these GPM's Aluminum Shock set in replacement stock Kyoshos. Anyone have any input in GPM's quality and performance on their products??

There's nothing really wrong with the factory plastic shocks.
Aluminum adds to your chassis' weight, seek increased handling and car performance somewhere else. Hope it helps, good luck

You are absolutely right!
To me there is nothing wrong with Factory plastic shocks
which I am really happy lately how this car transform to on track performance.
I was just curious so that is which I am asking since no one want to spend more $ on something without feedbacks.

Those shocks have been around for at least the past 7 years, they were shiny but that’s about it, couldn’t find rebuild kits for them, so I tossed them and went back to the stock Kyosho plastic shocks.

Even had the Kyosho optional metal GT shocks, much nicer build quality, plenty replacement parts, but the increase in weight over the plastic made it a no brainer to switch back.

If you want to gain an advantage in GT track racing, you need to be willing to try different things that everyone else at the track swears against.

Most track racer guys blindly follow what they think the "big pro’s" (who shouldn’t even be racing in the GT class) are using.

Pro drivers will always beat you on the track. They have excellent driver talent, but its more than that, they have access to stuff you don’t.

They can afford to use new stuff in every qualifier against you because they get it all for free and some of the stuff is totally custom made for or by them.

Just remember this….. the goal of every factory supported driver is to get you to buy or to continue to buy the products they’re getting for free.

Keep that in mind next time a factory guy comes to your track and whips everyone’s butt.
Hope it helps.

Has anyone drilled additional holes in the brass piston and gone with heavier oil? What size and how many would you add?
I am thinking of trying to add a hole opposite the open side in the 1.3 range and going with about 1200 oil. What do you think?

I just suggested to him to contact you from over on the nitro side. He wants to go fast with his electric Kyosho IGT!
