Ipanema Blackhawk SR has 10 times more gearing options (including higher top-speeds), premium universal center drive shafts, designed more for hard-core racing enviroments and real GT racers.

Costs a little more, but worth every penny to the GT racers that own one.

Cool deal!!! I am glad you guys are picking up on racing these cars. Looks like might have a place to race mine now since the Mississippi series race stopped running, the Memphis guys quit running theirs, and the class of these cars I helped to get started with the SWCS lost support from the other racers. Now, if I can get a Saturday here and there off from working at Mike's Hobby Shop to sneak down to run!!

The guys at my local track have been running some of the tires for 2-3 seasons. Which is one reason I'm switching from sedan....... What I spent on tires alone last year, I could have almost paid for my GT car......


MiamizFinest, I mean this in the nicest way possible, I hate you........ From those photos, it looks like you lucky racers are going to have a great time! BTW I like the multicolored servo horns... I want to racing sooooo bad!

There is no comparison between the cost of running a GT car and a 1/10 or 1/8. The GT is much, much cheaper.
