I just wonder why Kyosho or OFNA are not making an effort to sponsor or at least make presence at some of these big races...

...anyway with or without their support this class keeps growing more and more

See you in Mexico 2011

Well this class is not that big but it is getting there thanks in part to us. To tell you the truth I think that it is better to keep the factory drivers of since this is a very fun and inexpensive class. If the PRO drivers get into it the concept of pure fun and very competitive class will then be replaced with the "new must have" engine or works parts along with one of cars. What I (along with most of us) don't want to see is a repeat history of the sedan class.

PD. See you in Mexico! Is it 2011 yet?

+1 on your post jneg.

I like the way the GT world is operating right now: a class for those that want to spend some money and a class for budget-type racers. But you mentioned the most important thing: FUN!!! This is something that usually goes away when you involve the "pros". David Ortiz TQ'ed spec class with a $170 (give or take) engine and was only tenths to hundredths of seconds slower than the open class top qualifier with the $500+ engine. This just proves that sometimes you don't have to have the high dollar stuff to be competitive. But, at the GT Worlds, we all had "fun" and worked together which you don't see much in Lola 1/8th scale and 200mm racing today.

Like you, March 2011 can't get here quick enough.

Not really.



Warrior bodies are now on the Way to Bruckner Hobbies NY, Winner's Circle GA, Max Velocity Racing FL, IGT Hobbies TX, South Vally Hobby UT, Fastlane Raceway MO, Two Stroke Hobbies TX and Elite Performance FL. They'll be on the Warpath at a track near you very soon too.

That is the discontinued OFNA McLaren body that was offered with the original GT car, OFNA Ultra GTP, that was on the market at least three years before the Kyosho car. I have two in my possession and is on par with the handling capabilities of the Ferrari body (GT1). The Blackhawk Warrior body takes it at least one step further with the aerodynamics and handling capabilities over the OFNA body.

Im not knocking you guys it just that the rear wing is formed to the body like the other cars (1/8).Now the kyosho and proto bodies the wings are separate right ?i thought it mad a huge differance if the bodie was all one piece thats all.Im tring to learn all i can about this stuff take no offense.

Its cool.

The wing is intergrated into the body, its actually a little lower than the roof line too. The Warrior also comes with an optional "gourney flap" just in case you need extra downforce on lower traction tracks or surfaces.
