Just because there is only one disc don't think that this is a front brake only car... there is no center diff.... the one disc brakes for all four corners... the same.... no bias adjustment ... part of the rugged thrill running one of these beasts....

Ya, I would definitely be interested in some of those medial pro tires.
I'd probably take a set from you in Vegas.

Sounds like the V-slicks are too much work for me..haha
I'd hate to belt, and glue tires every third weekend, but that is just me.
Plus, the IGT is my charge the battery and go car.
Really all year long, I only put gas in it, and replaced one spur gear.
It is as zero maintanance as a car gets.

Sounds like we may have a few cars there to run after all.

Yea,

The Kyosho V-Slicks do need to be glued and I do belt them for my IGT but, until we find a set of slicks that provide better performance and give me lower lap times, I'll just have to keep setting new track records with them at SS Speedway in their "IGT Spec class".

The price shouldn't really be an issue since they all cost about the same. The most important thing is the traction available with the Kyosho V-Slick rubber tires is the best I've tried so far.

The bottom line is that the Kyosho Inferno GT cars cost a fraction of what conventional on-road RC cars cost. They're easy on the wallet because they don't break as easy if you hit someone's car or a board.

The IGT's here in Tampa are getting faster each weekend and the crowds love to watch them because they look like real cars racing around the track.

The playing field is level in the RC Pro Series Kyosho IGT Spec Class and its a lot of fun!

Another tip for the V slicks you can use the 1/10 off road foam inserts to fill the gaps giving you a more balanced tire I've notice inner wear on the slicks
Jspeed keep up the good work see ya after the new year & I will be bringing a Gt down soon

The only problem with the buggy inserts is they are way to thick so yo have to do a lot of trimming.
Im trimming them just to fill in the outer gaps between the rim & tire so far it has a more solid foundation
Once I completely break down & go over the GT I will post some helpful tips
