Thumbs up

That's a really nice video!!!
Is everyone running the Kyosho GT? or do they allow other cars like the OFNA DM1?
Are there any rules as far as the engines used?

It would be great to have a international GT race rigght???

I know in Mexico they race the kyosho's but they have a lot of rules. Pretty much they run the cars stock expept for some OS engines that are allowed.

Approved by Kraceway’s owner.



Classes will be:
GT Open
GT Spec
GT Electric Open

Being worked on right now, will provide more information & rules within a few days.

Open to all brands of "shaft-driven" buggy based chassis. (No Belt Drives, sorry)
Rules will be "loose", and very fair.
International & Pro racers are welcome.

This will be the GT event we've been waiting for.

Gonzo,

Almost everybody its racing DM-ONE chassis (PRO and RTR), our rules on equipment are :

- Only rubber tires.
- .28 engine allowed only if its a RTR one.
- Any .21 engine allowed.
- Any pipe allowed.
- Only GT body allowed, no "lola/gtp".

cya !

Default KYOSHO GT2 VS: OFNA DM1 SPEC

Can anybody give me an unbiased opinion on the pros and cons of these two
Gt class cars??? Which one would you buy and why. Is one clearly better than the other one???

On engine department. Anyone knows power figures on the Kyosho GXR 28SG and the OFNA Force .28 ??

Thanks
AFM

Alfonso,

Tested both, got OFNA. Man its a Jammin made for onroad, its a tank, and the parts are bulletproof, the 2 speed box it takes all kind of engines up to .28 RB or .21 C6 RB without any claim.

Powerwise, the .28 from OFNA its a lot more engine than the Kyosho one.

Try to contact XTREME Hobbies in Lima-Peru, they will be importing GT's for Peru market, and maybe in a couple months i will be there with you guys showing the class !! (i have a visit planed as CEN Racing offroad buggy driver and will travel with my GT too).

Call me if you need anything my friend !! +56 9 93385848,

cya !
