Free Racing in San Antonio Hobbytown if 10 or more GT8 racers enter on March 12th. We have 8 confirmed, so if you're in the area come on out. WBill from IGTHobbies will be donating the $$$. Come out and see what GT8 racing is about.

March 26th and 27th. We are running Nitro Open, but if enough Electrics show up, I am sure they will let us run a seperate class, so bring it also.

Look for a new sponsor for the SWCS GT class in the very near future

Default My new Rally set up.

This is a Proline 14RS rally slash body. Max down travel with limited up travel to keep the tires out of the body and to keep chassis roll to a minimum. I need to finish up the trimming and get the wing mounted.

Default Setup Help Needed

Hello guys, I decided to start racing GT Class at my current track here in Santiago, DR currently I have a Inferno Gt1 that I had since June 2010, I always go on the weekends to practice with the other GT drivers but had not raced yet, For this upcoming season I decided to start racing the GT but need some help on the setup I currently run, I attached a picture of the setup I am currently using, there is one mistake on the rear shock position, the position I use for the rear shock is (outer lower).

Rear Droop 1-1.5mm
Front Droop 2.5-3mm
Body: Kyosho BMW M3
Tires: GRP Rally B compound ''Medium''

The problem with my Gt is that I don't feel it agile when trying to evade another car or overtake, it feels unstable and when I try to do some sharp maneuver it will spin. Also when I exit a turn I cant step on the throttle since it will spin I always have to exit the turn at very low speed and then straighten the car before I can go full throttle again. Also the turning radius in the steering servo is adjusted to about 25% since if I go further it will spin even at low speeds.

I have managed to achieve some nice times at the track but I feel It can give more and be more constant without spinning or loosing control, also more forgivable.

My driving style is a bit aggressive, I tend to brake hard at the very end of the turn.

Please Help me make this car more drivable according to my driving style, I herd straightening up the rear shocks may help gain stability from the constant spinning, also a different type of oil weight. This is why I came to you guys, please help me tune this car to win the 11' championship

Here is a video of our track, currently it is getting asphalted for the next season:
