Got to get me some of those slicks for the track. Very nice!
For parking lots (or my street out front) the wide treaded work great.

Nice ride... I would check the fuel lines because they seem tight against the tank lid. I would give a little more room for the tank to open fully without any trouble (just a thought). Hope you like your DM-1.

Anyone happen to tinker with a DLS on these larger 1/8 buggy based on-road GT cars? Just curious. Wondering if I should put any time into trying to put one together for my old OFNA GTP? Any feedback at all would be appreciated.

Regards,

Speyederjedi

Hello from France,

excuse me but, I think you're going in the wrong way with your GT class....

At the beginning, you were right with using nice bodies, low budget engines and the tyres available at this moment...

But now, you will have in a near future, big problems because you have allowed bodies with too much down force and high grip tyres!!!
With this specifications, the reliablity of the cars will decrease and the engine too, due to the grip...

In Europe, Rally Game series are dying because of "technologic escalation" (sorry i don't a good word!!).

In France, we built a serie with unique hard compound tyres and only "high roof" bodies...And the popularity is growing very very fast. Tyres last over 1 gallon (4 liters) and transmissions are less stressed...

It's my opinion.
You will grow very fast because it's new and nice.
But with the economic interest, performances will raise and to be competitive you will have to buy the best bodies, the best tyres, several engines....

Take the time to think about the development you don't want to have...

Au revoir,
Romuald

I concur, BUT, you have to leave the door open to develop new and fast technology. Any serious racer wants that, and having two distinct classes will achieve it.

I also agree; however, what attracted me to this class was the REALISTIC Kyosho bodies and size. I do NOT like the Ipanema body simply because it strays from the idea of GT, where all the cars look different. I think the GT class should race with the "realistic" gt bodies otherwise you have a sea of warrior bodies then what's the point???

The wider rear tires I think are in-line with "GT-class" cars and I welcome the extra grip for the powerful engines for this class.

Default Alpha R2 - New race body by Alpha R/C

Hello from Brazil , this is my first post in RC Tech Forum , and the best way to start this is posting pictures of our new Race Body ( Thanks Pato Concha to post the pictures) , The Alpha R2 , this body will fit all 330 mm wheelbase car's .

All in this body was developed by us , initially searching the best aerodinamic design to GT cars, after choosing the best way to give harmony to the lines in our project and finally testing the body in our local track .

We are very happy with the final project , this is what the GT Class need, realistic body with high performance .

Soon the US Racer's will find this body in our distributor : Max Velocity Racing.

Please forum members , feel free to post here if you have questions about our new product.

Team Alpha R/C - Brazil
