Made this list when I was researching for a friend for doing the same.

Kyosho Inferno GT2 Shock Stay Set KYOIG103
Kyosho Inferno GT Shock Set (2 pcs) KYOIG001 (Need two sets for complete set)
Kyosho Inferno GT2 Body Mount Set KYOIG104



Kyosho Inferno GT Bumper KYOIG002
Kyosho Inferno GT Urethane Foam Bumper KYOIG003


Protoform PF8-GT Body 1503-00

Sweep EXP 45 /w Medium Inserts Pre-Glued (Sweep Website $50 shipped)

3x20mm cap Head screw and M3 locknut (need 4 each for mounting shocks onto shocktower)

Kyosho 5.8mm Flanged Ball Pivot (for shocktower spacer/shock eyelet) KYOIG006B



4x35mm Screw (for attaching top bumper plate to front shocktower, need 2 screws)

2.6x6mm screw (for setting body posts height, need 4 pieces. Manual calls out for philips, but cap head is better...)

Also, slightly off my initial topic, I've seen that the GT1 chassis have been prone to flexing and even warping in some instances. Is this a problem for the GT2 RS chassis and should I be looking to upgrade to another Kyosho chassis (i.e. ST-RR) immediately?

BTW, I plan on doing speed runs and mild bashing, but if the local track starts racing this class then I'll mod accordingly.
FYI for anyone w/GT2 RS chassis questions, it looks like Kyosho addressed the chassis issues with the new RS/ST Neo chassis, so I should be good to go.

Center Diff...
How do you guys run your center diff?
Currently im running a GT2 and is handleing pretty good with the esception of the braking and i got the idea that it could be the center diff that is giving me problems...(The center diff is fill with whatever comes from factory)
Once I'm coming close to a turn and hit the brakes to slow it down a little, the car spins like if I have a one way diff at front,...
Even if I set the drag brake the car starts loosing the rear end entering the turn.

What oil you guys use on your center diff? Any advise? The powertrain I have is 2050kv 4S

Thanks in advance, all this 1/8 GT cars is new to me been reading a lot and only can find suggestion for center diff for off road

Get rid of the stock Kyosho tires! I run Ofna treaded tires on mine and it handles great.
