The track is getting a full make-over right now so its ready for the Caribbean Winter Cup in December and our 2012 GT Worlds next March.

Thanks for posting the video, nice to see the actual size and layout in real time. Gonna be fun to race our GT cars there!
Actually this past Saturday it was almost 78 degrees LOL

We are working hard so that everyone gets here and has a great time racing. One thing is for sure all racers can expect to qualify lots of times and have long mains so everyone will be extremely happy with race times. This Satuday I will take measurements of the two straits and I will let you know the leghts.

Default body paint job

Can anyone recommend a good painter to do my bodies someone I can send them to by mail and get them back fast with a pro paint job I have good body painters in my area but it always takes about a month before you get it back and these are local guys who paint these bodies.

I see some real good paint photos posted lately and I have a fresh body waiting for paint.

Yes, I have been using this body for awhile now. Tried others but this one works best for me. Image is everything, I always like a clean paint job throughout my years of racing. I will post pics when it's mounted with sweep tires and Alpha+ engine modded by PTM.

Default Engine questions for the Spec Class

I have been debating going with either the RTR .28 from the DM1 or buying a less than $200 .21 engine. Locally a few of the guys have gone with the Novarossi N21R limited (Amain $144 but out of stock). It has proven to be hard to find in stock.

I have seen a few different motors out there that seem to fit the bill:
RB Concept Sport 10 .21 3 port $161.99
OS .21VG 3 port $159.99
Novarossi .21 P3XS $159.99 Absolute, $199 Stormer, $209 Amain.


My questions are:

1. Does anyone out there have experience with any of these?
2. How do you address the pricing rule when some sites are over $200 and some are below?
3. Has anyone put together a list of "SPEC" .21 motors that compete well with the .28 RTR?
4. In general what are faster the .28 RTRs or the .21 3 ports or are they a good match?
5. Have any .21 3 port motors under $200 been outlawed?

Thanks,

Troy

Troy,

For our races we tried to match engine power output regardless of price, but it caused too much problems and arguments.

For this season we're gonna follow the lead set by the Midwest Series and go with the $200 or less engine rule for our GT Spec class in an attempt to unify American GT racers with the same engine rule.

I ran the force. 28 ($120) this past weekend and finished 2nd in the a main of the Midwest series. If I hadn't messed around with my brakes right before and went with a different pit strategy I would have challenged 1st. The engine ran strong the whole event and is the same motor in the dm1 spec RTR.

The force .28 is a great cheapo engine.Far better than the GXR. My problem with 28's is fuel consumption. I'm running a P9 in open class which is great. but I am going to try a 3 port next time.

So, I am seeing a few of these belted cars pop up.
I saw a really cool one last week at a local track.(think it was a Italian kit but I don't remember the name)
Is the class open to this style of car?

What is the performance difference between a buggy style (shaft driven)
car and a 1/8 onroad style belt setup?

Thanks.

Booo on the belts. That's exactly why I got into GT cars and not other on-road.

Just my opinion of course.

Default DM I spec

Guys I am a lot confused I was told by my club that I can not run the ofna dm1 spec in the gt class, Because it is not a buggy based chassis. Ofna gtp is the only one that is allowed from Ofna. I did see a dm 1 ran at the recent MWS mentor without any issues. What is the official ruling on the DM 1 Spec. Thanks This class looks great.
