There is a rear exhaust system on Ebay... search under Inferno GT2

http://cgi.ebay.com/Kyosho-Rear-MUFF...item2eabf3d714

... under $100. I don't know how well it performs compared to a side pipe... Mika... any performance input (by the way... that does look cool).

Thanks folks
I haven't noticed less performance but for a serious racer a traditional pipe would be my choice just to be safe. With this pipe it ain't slow though.

BTW, in that eBay link, it's actually M Y GT2 from last year - the seller has just copied the picture from some of my posts... Internet you know.. it's even my table there haha

Mika, that's HILARIOUS! Next time, perhaps you can sync the exhaust smoke with the periods of acceleration. And I thought you were buttoned up... LOL!

Cheers Steve!

I didn't spend too much time finding a good audio track and syncing it up.. just enough for you guys to get a few laughs -- I love Kyosho because the always pay attention to details like we see here..the rear exhaust, the body, everything..

For a better "movie" I'd need some shooting on the track and then a better audio.. maybe something for the future

Oh man! So I'm at the track finishing the brake in process on my gt and my battery goes dead right at the end of the straight... You can guess what happened after that...
I know I set up the failsafe on my spektrum system but forgot to test it. F***

I ended bending the chassis and the front pins.

Does anybody know if theres a better chassis plate for the gt??? That does not require modification?

Thanks guys and remember to check your failsafe on a regular basis. I'll post some pics later.

I've checked this guy.. he does not sell this kit outside Japan. Really cool for electric TT01 cars.

Like Bubba Cola said, I think that most kind of "gentlemen agreed" on a 3in cooling hole in the front windshield. I have seen some with slightly bigger holes at some of the races I have attended but no one seemed to mind or make a fuss over it.
