The only good looking one here is the one with Kyosho body. That's the #1 reason to buy a K car

I remember there was quite a bit of discussion of the IGT front caster.. Actually I think it is 17 degrees, not 20. IGT uses the same front geometry as the original MP7.5, the optional 20/22 caster came with the Kanai edition that uses a different caster block (20 or 22 deg), different upper arms and longer front universals. Maybe you already know this but just wanted to say what I found out recently.

Default Twister Tires

I don't know what you guys are running for tires on the IGT I spent a while looking for the GRP's with no luck, I still have yet to try the Kyosho V-slicks myself but on a tip from a fellow racer I picked up some IGT tires from Twister Tires last week.
Had The IGT at the track on sunday after doing a few laps with the stock tires and getting feed up with the lack of traction I slapped on the Twister tires and noticed a difference on the first lap after a few laps the tires warmed up a bit and the traction was amazing although I could still break the back end loose it was a lot harder to do really had to mash the throttle to get it to break loose in the turns. What made it more remarkable was that the track was not swept or blown off and there was no traction compound on the surface and here's the kicker the ambient air temp was about 50f for the high and I was running the harder or the two shores that are offered by Twister Tires.
Needless to say I am impressed by the traction these tires provided under less then ideal conditions has me counting the weeks until the season starts up here, the traction can only get better as the weather gets warmer and the track gets fully prepped.

Here's the link check em out for yourself.

Medial Pro's are still in the works and they will be available 'eventually'. I can't give an exact date yet, but I promise I will get them asap.

universals are not longer you can actually use the lightweight universals from the 777 they fit on the Gt as well as some other parts will work on it also
rods,turnbuckles,shock pistons,torque rods we tested 20 & 22 knuckles on the Gt

Regg testing with the twister tires in florida @ a high bite track smooth surface 96deg temp it took about the amount of laps for them to come in if your looking for a quicker grip add some paragon,tq,buggy grip to the outer front & in the rear apply the traction compund completly on it & it should really help.
Are you the same Regg from Nitrotalk

sounds like a good idea with the tire sauce I'll give it a try.
Although i gotta admit that the tires are fairly sticky already and thats in the cold. traction compound and heat should prove interesting. Hope I don't traction roll this beast. lol

yep thats me, i'm on nitro talk as well

I belive we meet at Flloyd bennet field a few years back name looks really familer.

What effect did the 20 & 22 knuckles have on the GT if any?
