RC Car Action has a comparison test between the Kyosho IGT and the Ofna Ultra GTII. You guys may want to check that magazine out. It's a pretty good article.

It's a pretty good article. I didn't know that the new IGT's were delivered with digital servos. That is what the article says. What is the torque rating on stock IGT servos?

I have been racing one of these a Ronnie Setsers Raceway in Tampa since december. This is the most fun I have had in 20+ years if racing. Parts are not a problem because you rarely break any. The only thing I replace were spur gears due to adustment error. The competition is incredible. They are real driver cars and you can go lap after lap with someone swapping positions the whole time. I would recommend these to anyone who has a place to race them. We are pushing 3 mains on normal sunday races.

One thing I noticed about the IGT is the motor mount. It pretty much looks like you would have to swap out the chassis if you want to use anything else other than a Kit motor. Is there any other options?

You can put any .21 or bigger motor in these cars. The stock motor bolts right to the chassis, but the chassis (pretty much the same as the 7.5 buggy) accepts the plates and engine mounts used by other Kyosho cars. The plates are made by Kyosho, the mounts are too and are also available from several aftermarket companies.

Thanks,
I've looked into it further and found the part numbers from a inferno 777.

I'm looking to pick one of these up in the next few weeks and I keep noticeing that the aston martin version of the IGT is about 40$ more then the other versions of the IGT was wondering if anyone knows the reason for this? Does this version of the IGT come with any upgrades over the others?

It has to do with licensing. It costs more for Kyosho for the license to make the Ferrari and Aston Martin bodies than the others.
