Pato...thanks for posting video for us GT nuts and especially those guys wanting a glimpse of the COBRA!

Congrats on a 'masterful' win....intense action for you and Paolo.

I'm glad that the camera got to that higher angle to show the corner action. I've got to try that on HD!

Congratulations to all in that event.

NOTE to sumpan77.....to be 'diplomatic' about recomending a tire, i can say there is one of those i no longer call a choice. Two of them use nylon in the rims and one has used 'injection molded ABS' similar to the horrible 'stock Kyosho' rims.
I broke one in a big race qualifier and can't use that brand again. No problem with the rubber, just the rims that fail.


Just noticed that Esven from Germany gave a good showing for us KYOSHO drivers....good job!

Don’t be confused…..

Do some research on websites, see what they really offer and have helped GT racers accomplish......

Contact them directly with your technical support questions on their products for your specific application, climate, running surface and intended usage.

Then, maybe you might also wish to try each of the GT tire brands you’ve listed and make your own decision based on your personal experience on what works best for you.

All the best to you!

Nice video Patricio, congrats again.
Wish we could have made the Copa, looked like fun.

Too bad you can't make it to the Ipanema GT World Championships in a few days in Barceloneta.

Maybe we'll catch up at the Byron's race at Leisure Hours in Chicago this June.

Thanks,

Was my very first time out, without not a baseline setup and not really that much time to play with the car in terms of setup since i was racing 2 classes

The potential of the car is huge. My next race will be the GT WC in Puerto Rico. I will try to test many different setups options to speed up my learning process of the car and make it faster.
