Great news, it's good to know that you will be back racing with us in PR. I think you raced in this layout before. Plus everyone will have ample time to work on a strong setup. Team Serpent will be here in force from the looks of the entry list.

There are 2 races per year, one in Lima - Peru (the one you saw on the video) and the other in Ecuador, but in Ecuador GT class is not available (we will try to put it up this year in august).

So, focus on February/March 2013 in Lima - Peru

cya !

The Team C GT8 cars are now available in the US, for GT2. In stock are GT8L Nitro, and GT8LE Brushless. I have seen them and can vouch that it is not a conversion, but specifically built for GT class. The materials are good quality, especially the aluminum and steel drivetrain, just like the 1/8th buggy and truggy. If these cars perform anywhere near as well as the other 1/8th Team C cars, it will be something special.

Make sure to stop by to see Joan and Fernando Lopez at the Ipanema Worlds, as they will be running the GT8L for it's first race.

RoyJ......enough of the tease......who's got them and where's the price.

I've only found minimal info to date on the Team C.

This is getting more interesting in the GT class. Cobra will be looking for that 1st they just missed in Peru and I know of the 'homebrew' Xray working on a 1st this season.

Good luck to all in P.R. ..........beautiful place...........

This looks like 'battle of the manufactures' now, not just Ofna vs. Kyosho. Good stuff.

Jeff, can you put car/motor after entry names if you get a chance? Thanks.

Sorry dude no time or desire to do that now, remember I'm working on creating another great GT race body until my flight.



Maybe after the race we'll do something like that, but the main thing to know about the Ipanema Sports GT World Championships are the racers who are dedicated enough to make this the great GT Only racing event it is.

All the brands are allowed to be used, even the ones that try to keep our products from being used at their races, lol
We may need to change that if that dirtbag attitude continues once again this year, but for now we'll lead by example.

Thanks for the well wishes, we'll try to post a lot of pictures and race info.

All the best!

JSPEED.......I can understand the crunch to get ready, that's why I said 'if you get a chance'. I thought it was a neat concept when I saw the equipment posted after the race in Peru for the winners......nice touch.

That new 325 GT body is looking good, when is the full reveal?

It would be super if someone can do a pit walk and post up the driver/car/motor.....just any front line set of eyes for us 'unfortunate' types would be appreciated.

And again, good luck to all the racers going to P.R.

I'm sure most of us will have more than enough photos to share. Jerry what we don't want to have is a manufacturer's battle on the forum and that's why no brands are marked as of yet. But the race results will include every little bit of information of what was used by everyone.
