The DM one uses 17mm hex wheels just like offroad buggies. They are the same exact size as the Kyosho GT1, GT2. IMO, the Ipanema racing slicks and treaded tires are the best you can get for racing.

Cool

They are available in black and yellow, but your dealer will have to special order them. Most racers like white.

Default GT2

Damn! I feel like buying another Inferno gt

Guys somebody probably asked this before but what is the difference between the gt and gt2 as far as driving the cars at the track? anybody here went from gt to gt2 and could tell me how you felt the difference in the cars?

Thanks!

I had both cars and raced each for at least a year. For me the GT2 handles much better. I can't explain how 35 mm of extra wheelbase can make so much difference but it does. The GT2 is more stable under braking too.

For me it was a bit too "sluggish" on our track; maybe I didn't setup it correctly and our track isn't that huge. I prefer the IGT "Spec" 1

I have driven both cars, and the GT2 handles high speed sweepers nice and is a bit more docile under braking, but the GT1 corners in on the tighter stuff much better and is lighter. I chose to run the GT1 at the worlds and don't feel like I gave anything up by having it rather than the GT2.

+1

I have to agree with Spooky on this one too. At the GT Worlds, I too drove my GT1 over my GT2 and did not give up much to the bigger car.

They're both great racing chassis.
The IGT2 has the engine further forward, (in relation to the rear wheels) and gives better weight distribution. The result is more driveability & stability.
Pretty much the same reason the new generation of "truggies" have longer "tail" sections.

The Blackhawk transmission is one way to go. Kyosho now has their version of it as an upgrade to the current stock transmission. It goes from $69.99 to $89.99 depending on what website you order it. The main problem is that it is "out-of-stock" just about every place you check today. Kyosho doesn't seem to be in a major hurry to produce a large number of the new transmissions and get them to the buying consumer that is demanding them. But you will eventually need to upgrade from the finger-style two-speed that is currently in the car.

You are welcome and no need to apologize. We have all had computer issues before. I used that setup and tweaked it a little for my driving style and it is still working for me. Again, good luck with getting it set up.
