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 :




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

cya and thanks for your support !

That body would look better if it didn't have that big black vertical sticker there seems odd. I know it's trying to resemble the audi r8, but it would look nicer without those two stckers near the quarter panel ...

Muchmoreusa sells Sweep so does Tower and Skyrocketbatteries just to name a few.

I doubt getting these tires will be very hard once they are available to the public.

Looks to me like Sweep estimates July to be there tentative release

Well guys, Alpha RC factory just asked me to post this here.

Alpha RC would like to thanks PIT LANE HOBBIES from Puerto Rico for trusting on our products, so we announce that PIT LANE HOBBIES its now the exclusive distributor of Alpha RC products in PUERTO RICO.





We have already a solid distributor about to be announced for USA (we treat Puerto Rico and USA as different territories), so we hope to make the announcement soon.

cya !

Sorry gotta vent. Bought a Inferno GT2 several months ago, and obviously it was just barely broken in when the 2-speed started going haywire. I actually didn't explode any gear teeth, the cam, spring assembly just keeps falling apart and then its stuck in high gear. It's been shelved ever since because the the upgraded Kyosho 2-speed is backordered everywhere and nobody can seem to get any from Kyosho unless they place a bulk order. And it appears now the IPanema BlackHawk 2-speed is unavailable until further notice. WTF? I'm over it now and want to offload this thing but of course, can't get squat for it or nobody else is going to want it since they are going to have to jump through hoops to get parts for it also. Not happy with the car at all.

My "GT Open" car has the Sirio CL7R STI .21 On-Road engine.
Both .28s & .21s seem to have different advantages to them.
At Ipanema Sports GT events, you can use any header/pipe combo you want in our "Open" or "Spec" class.

No need to be sorry, Bad customer service should NEVER be rewarded.

A-main has the trans in stock right now and the back up spur gears in stock.

Nova won the Worlds. We used a 35plus. Flash, 35plus or one of the new JP-Gimar (S09 or R09) engines will be the way to go. The new JP-Gimars just TQ'd and won at Controlfreakz last week.
