Mike which track to you go to?
Also I am torn between the GT, GT2, DM-1 all these choices!
The Losi L8eight looks good too, but it will need a 2-speed in my opinion for the track in Chaplin, CT.
From what I have read, the IGT or GT2 just need the 2-speed upgrade. The IGT has a shorter wheel base, thus allowing certain bodies for this chassis. ie. Ferrari, Aston and BMW i believe, right? The GT2 give the option for the Audi, Corvette and McLaren, due to the longer wheel base. The GT2 does come upgraded with a slightly better eninge, but still requires the 2-speed upgarde mentioned above.
As far as the DM-1, don't see much about it, but from the looks on the OFNA page it looks pretty well built. Specially with the lay down front suspension. Not sure about the bodies for this car, but from a video posted a few pages back, the battle between the GT and the DM was pretty intense. Very similar cars.
I might have to toss the coin here, when ever i find one with 3 sides...
....GT, GT2 or DM-1
The $$$ on the GT2 is the same as the DM-1. The GT2 will need upgrades making it more expensive than the DM-1. The GT will also need upgrades making same price as the DM-1. Does the DM-1 need anything out side of the box?
