Ipanema will retain their version and Roar will come up with their own. Local tracks / clubs in the end set up their own version / twist of the rules anyways. This is nothing new.

As far as him trying to sell his product, well he is not the only one.

Short wheelbase cars (GT, DM1) can choose from Ipanema, Protoform, Kyosho and Ofna.

GT2 length cars, Ipanema and Kyosho.

HELP! So I bought a Fioron Vario clutch for something different to try. What I didn't know is that the Kyosho clutch bell is no where near deep enough. The end of the clutch hits the clutch bell before the shoes are half way covered. So my question to the masses of smarter GT1 & 2 owners, does anyone know of a clutch bell that might fit? Or am I just dumber enough to be overlooking something?

Thanks!

On my GT1 I used the HPI two speed bell #86039 with an Fioroni Adjustable clutch. This clutch bell should be deep enough. Check the proboards Inferno GT site, reference thread also.

The thing is, this is race car after all, so let's keep it simple. On the track it looks good enough, really "scale". You hardly see under the body anyways.

Gonzo,

You will like the brake upgrade. I did that to mine before the Homestead race. Braking will not fade during a race like the original set up did. I will be doing what you are doing to your car very soon. Need to make sure it will be ready for Joliet for the September race.
