In all honesty here are my thoughts....
The IGT2 is available in RTR form only and you’re talking about a “roller” with out an engine.
You should base your decision depending on the “GT” racing rules on your area or tracks you wish to run on and parts availability from your local hobby shops.
Both car chassis have their strong & weak points; the comparison of the 2 cars is subjective at best and has been the cause of many heated discussions on this thread since day one. In the spirit of this new year, I hope to not get dragged into any more "bashing" sessions between the two brands. None of the 2 cars is "perfect" no matter what anyone says
My personal vote goes with what I’ve driven and had good experiences with; but some of my friends wouldn’t agree with me and that’s cool too.
While I haven’t personally driven or owned the DM1 “Spec”, I’ve seen it racing on tracks. Any chassis can look good and win races, it depends more on the driver and rules more than anything else.
My new IGT2 chassis has performed well for me. It is well balanced, very durable and easy for me to drive. I’ve raced it 2 times and it won for me the first time out, so I’m happy with the layout of the chassis and hope to podium with it many times in 2009. My old IGT1 was great for me and saw many podium finishes in 2008, so I'm real happy with Kyosho's IGT cars.
Regardless of which direction you choose, I hope you enjoy racing your “GT” car.
See ya at the races!
