I am the one in 3rd I was using a Protoform PF8-GT. Bassman got 1st and TQ I believe his body is a BYSM Pontiac LM for the Kyosho GT1. I am not sure about 2nd but I think it's the BYSM GT1. Those BYSM bodies are very cool they are much stronger and thicker then mine and just as lite. But that's probably why they cost what they do.

Check out www.igthobbies.com they carry every body and part you will need for any GT.

The best hotels are about 25minutes from the track, look for hotels in the Dorado but you can stay in San Juan or in Isla Verde where there are many more hotels. There are a few Paradores (small hotels) near the track but they are not the cheapest hotels. As far as Nitro Fuel there are many brands available from Byron's, Sidewinder, O'Donnell, Power Master (VP Fuels), among others.

The track has 2 long straights, the smaller one is 175ft long and the longest one is about 225ft. The total racing line is from 950-1000ft total. The weather in march is very good with an 85F average. With the Humidity it can feel in the 90's. I hope this helps you guys out a little. I will try to answer any questions as soon as possible.

Here is a Google Earth picture of the Track:


There will be four categories open to anyone. These are; Gt Spec, Gt Open, Gt Electric, Gt Outlaw. The spec, open and electrics will use the same basic rules as the previous world championships (I will post them as soon as possible). The new class is the GT Outlaw where there are no limits on chassis, weight, etc. In the Outlaw class one can use belt driven cars like the European Rally Game Cars or one can use the shaft driven cars. The race fee and schedule are being work on right now but again as soon as I have something I will let you guys know.

Here is the official race site:
http://gtworldchampionships.com/default.aspx

Rules:
http://gtworldchampionships.com/GT1ClassRules.aspx
After having run on this track, I can tell you it will separate the pretenders from the contenders. If you don't drive a good line around this track, the local competition alone will eat you for lunch. You had better bring your A-game to this track, you will definitely need it.

Those bodies are nice and all but IMHO the IGT class should stick to realistic looking bodies or real car bodies
This is the thing that separates us from the 1/8 cars (plus thier speed and handling)
To make the IGT a crowd pleaser and friendly class we should have realistic bodies that the audience can relate to
just my opinion

Once we have more options in bodies there should be more regulations
Protoform might be in so we should have enough realistic bodies to have variety

Check with the tracks that you will be running at, as there are some rules being run that are different. The Midwest and Heart of America Series run a $200 motor rule which makes a lot of sense. They guys in Texas, pretty much run what you brung, TimeZone was a $200 limit (but don't hold me to that)

Axial, Picco , and Lrp all make very good engines in that price range. They are all .28 size , so they have gobs of torque for these heavy cars. For the $200 price range , try the Picco .28 or Lrp .28. You won't be disappointed.
