Has anyone found where to get Kyosho bodies yet, or is the mysterious shortage of bodies still in effect? I really want to do a Vette and McLaren back to back comparison. But I'm finding it to be difficult since I can't find any Vette bodies.....

Hi guys,

Just received an email confirming the tests results of the new Alpha RC GT2 Body (names as R-1).

This is couple pictures and small video (sorry, no official camera man attended) made during weekend on a Brazilian small test track.

Remember that this body is for Kyosho GT2 Chassis dimmensions.

I do think the body will be in USA for testing in a couple weeks, so far the results has been great, no special break points on the body, nice downforce, good technical sections behaviour and excellent top speed :








+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.



ps : - By the way, i already told the factory to get a body painter lol !!

cya and thanks for your support !

I figured someone would notice that!

I've been out of RC racing for about 30 years. A lot of things have changed (Like reflexs). This thread has helped me to at least get the car right. I don't mind going back a few years to get info. Now if I can only get someone to race me......

You might want to tell them to get ready to make ALOT of them since the only body we can get is the warrior body (Nothing against the warrior at all!!! Just upset with Kyosho).

Designed, tested and proven to win. Fits IGT1, IGT2, Ofna Dm1s, buggy conversions and Rally Game cars too.

Nice conversion! I based my losi version 1.0 on your post. Its fast! My question is what spring did you use to keep it from bouncing all over the place? I have a CC 2650 and a 5 cell lipo in it w/ 18t pinion.
