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
Excellent post.. +5 or whatever it is...

Guys, here it is a video of one of the test of R2 (short wheelbase version) body from Alpha RC on a Kyosho GT2 Car with short chassis (same long as GT, 330mm) :

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.



Enjoy !

MikaR,

As far as i know and based on conversations with the factory, no mods to bodies or cars being tested with the new R2 body.

As of now, cars tested are :

- GTP2-E
- Ofna DM Spec
- Kyosho GT2 transformed to GT wheelbase with short chassis

I will be receiving my R2 for the Peruvian race tomorrow or wednesday max, then to paint department ... will show the pics as soon as i receive it.

regards

Basic rules right now till class gets bigger to separate. rubber tires, 1/8 shaft driver car, open to electric and engines, no lola type bodies, and great attitude to race and have fun. In our racing here stock engines do as well as open engines, its driver experience that gives advantage.

Could anyone take a measurement for me? I want to know how high your body posts are (from chassis to where clips go in, front and rear). Also if you could post what body you are running that would help too.

I'm trying to mount my body mounts and they are looking a bit too high, but I'm not sure. There is plenty of adjustment to go up, but if they are too high I can only go down so far.
