WOW!!! Those bodies look sweet Pato. I want two of
them also. I like the wing set-up too. It looks alot cleaner
than moulding an ugly arsed air dam into the back of the
body. I have been wanting to try the Alpha Racing Tyres
out for a long time and am glad to hear that they may be
available here in the U.S.A. soon. Still looking for those
wider tyres that we talked about too.

Im a huge fan of the r8,but i must say the body would look alot better if the vents on the side were pushed back a bit.JMO over all not bad.And i like the rims.

You have to hand it to the Brazilians!

1. They have beautiful beaches



2. They have beautiful beatches



3. Hell of a Futbol team



And now Alpha RC is offering us GT tyres and a stunning new body!

All I can say is VIVA O BRASIL

Thanks for your words.

This is a factory project, the information i received during last days are :

1.- Body its specially designed over Kyosho GT2 chassis, so will fit perfectly over it.

2.- If drivers like the quality of the body, next step its to have a "short" version to fit DM1-SPEC.

Personally, i do know Alpha RC for YEARS (i used to live in Brazil, and prior to year 2004, all 1/10 Nitro Sedan racing was over rubber tires on that country, mandatory) and i know the quality of Alpha and the GT Tyres are simply awesome. Im very excited about this new project, hope to end in a good way and hopefully the CAD design end being close to 100% as possible in real life.

will be posting more news as soon as possible,

cya !

Alpha RC Tyres in Latin America already have distributors in Chile, Brazil, Peru, Venezuela, Mexico and Puerto Rico ... and now we are looking for a strong distributor in USA.

The body and the new wheel look awesome! I hope we get a distributor soon, especially since I have been told Kyosho bodies are backordered and not sure when they'll be in................

Hi Rafa ... !!

Yes, 5-6 drivers on the A-Main were Sintec RC (Ipanema's), and the 1st and 2nd place on A-Main were Alpha RC Tyres along with couple more drivers on A-Main. 2009 were the first year of Alpha RC on the GT Class and even when by that time Alpha didnt have the upgraded tyre that they have now, they were able to conquer the race ...

About the Body ... Alpha will try to get it done to public in July ... obviously you in Brazil will get it first hehehehe,

cya !!

ps : - For the ones who doesnt know, my friend Rafael Felicio (Rafa) is a very experienced top driver in Brazil (specially offroad) who is pushing hard for the grow of GT Class on his country, and racing for Sintec RC, the makers of Ipanema.

Thanks to put your words on this forum Rafael !!!


cya

If any one is interested the local hobbie shop (pitlanehobby.com) will be selling these tires here in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a US territory and uses USPS so he may be able to send those to any one in the US for a minimal shipping charge. Cant wait to get my hands on these they look nice.

TRW101-9514 (9.5-1.4/L=63) DBX/DST 2.pcs
TRW101-9014 (9-1.4/L=63) DBX/DST 2.pcs
