Maybe that why they discontinued the current Audi body.

I heard that it might have been a licensing issue. The licensing of lexan bodies patterned after current cars is very expensive from what I have been told and found out. Kyosho may have decided not to continue the licensing agreement with Audi due to cost.

I really want to upgrade to a high end buggy, but times are tuff and can't afford it right now.

I think the Losi8 oval is the car to have due to center line. Car seems to have perfect balance which is crucial for road racing.
The shock towers are really good too. So many tuning options for both shock position/roll center and the body mounts/front bumper are a perfect fit to GT bodies.
Complete GT package if your not scared of a dremel!
Wat caster blocks does the L8 losi have? Same as buggy?

yes! the only change is the shock towers, body mounts and the wide bumper.

I tried the T.T. two-speed on my Losi L8ight model. The bearings are not same size for Losi center diff mounts.

You know something that we don't? Is Kyosho going to hit us with a new body? Inquiring minds want to know.

Default New Kyosho GT

Not trying to stir up any juices but i was told by a Very Reliable source that Kyosho will be putting out a new Electric GT and Nitro GT in about 4 months time.

Hope they are smart enough to put a real trans in it this time

Maybe we will see the new Serpent model by then, would be nice Just Sayin

If would be great too see two new GT cars available I like to see a good trans in them and some premeasured body post for the kyosho as well as a two piece trans mount. Now that I mention these minor things about the Kyosho the GT2 is a pretty solid car GT3 will probably be awesome hope its true.

If Kyosho comes out with a GT3 they will be a little to late, I already have a GT4.

I would hope for a better steering rack like from the MP9!! maybe adjustable caster this time around.

I would think that with all the buggy conversions about to take place they would consider a short buggy chassis as well.
An MP9 based GT car would be hot!
