I hope we see many electric GT cars racing at Leisure Hours for our US GT National Event in a few weeks.

Curious anyone tried the new GT2 Aston Martin body in racing conditions? There has been so little talk about that one.

It is hard to get the Aston Martin body for the GT2 in my neck of the woods in the states. In fact, I have only seen it in pics. I think that there was one of the guys at the Ipanema GT Worlds that had one on his GT2 (either one in the Mexican or South American groups).

I have been running it. It works well. I had the forth fastest lap and only off by hundreths of a second at the byrons race a few weeks ago. The car could have gone faster but I couldnt keep it in one piece long enough to ever get anything going. I didnt get much track time cause I had radio and transmission problems all weekend.

Problem with this body is the front is super fragile but the front splitter is realllllllly cool and seems like it works.

I agree with last statement, thats why I don't like it, too much front overhang also. Does Kyosho even make a bumber to support it?

Have you tried those KA bumpers with it ?

OK, good to know.

I love the Warrior body but I'm also a fan of the Aston. So I might try it out now that I have the GT2 wheelbase, maybe not for racing but otherwise

I saw that this morning, too bad they are not available in the States. The treaded version looks cool, I could put the buggy wheels I have laying around to use.
