Default Looking for a GT.

If anybody is letting go of a decent GT class car I am looking. I'm partial to properly broken in force .28 but I am basically looking for a GTP,DM1 spec or regular,or inferno GT1 or 2 with a working 2 speed and life on the engine. Not worried about the body or electronics. Thanks inadvance.

I was thinking maybe the Losi 8ight 4 shoe clutch but not sure if the GT bell will fit in that clutch, also was thinking about the Fioroni Vario and the Ascendancy Effortless Clutch system.

If you have a decent setup for sale let me know.

i dont know if this fit

Dynamite Max-Life Aluminum Clutch Shoe Set

This clutch last longer then any other 3 shoe set I have used to date (by far) and works great for me with 1.0 springs. Just be sure to knock the burs off after a race this will extend the life and function.

I have tried a few 4 shoe sets and the main difference to me was price.
Stick with the 3 shoe setup it works well.

Other good alternative is to try carbon/composite shoes as the hotbodies D8 buggy stock ones, or ultimate ones ... they give you a nice grab/punch, low wear and longer bearings life ...

The MP9 motor mounts lower the engine, did you get the MP9 flywheel? If not the stock size version may hang below the chassis.

At the local track Saturday with a friend putting his sedan through it's pace and was gonna do the same to his DM-1 but his crank shaft was bent so stripped the two speed gears. The other GTs at the track looked like they were on ice. Temp was about 64. The all had G_P tires(don't wanna say the name) but as got to telling one of the guys it was the tires. I told him of the way the Inpenema slicks worked and he had a set in his bag. His car was nite and day. Best tires made. He got off the stand all smiles

For the IGT2, you have 6 body choices:

Kyosho Corvette
Kyosho Audi
Kyosho McLaren
Kyosho Astin Martin
Ipanema Warrior
Alpha Audi R8

If you are going to race, the Ipanema Warrior or Kyosho Corvette would be the choices for big track racing. Can't really tell you much about the rest of the bodies because I never owned one of them for the GT2. As this class grows, there may be more bodies coming down the road. Until then, got to roll with what we have.

Yes, I got the 32mm flywheel as well, this combo will give the car a lower Center of Gravity which is a plus.

I was wondering if you can get any bodies for the DM-1 Pro 1/7?
