Oh didn't you hear? The Official Intergalactic GT Racing Rule Book
has been changed. That body was given an official waiver of the
no tires outside the body rule. Just add some 15mm wheel hubs
and your car will really look like a pile of dunggy-doo.

on the painting and scheme. that's a fantastic looking job on the painting, layout and colors selected. I love how the headlights are done. very nice looking GT scheme. Would love to see some more pictures of this body form different angles.


Good to see that some of us are able to realize that "Kaor's beautifully detailed "Killer" Warrior GT body shown above is not mounted on the chassis, but was only sitting on it when the picture was taken.

If it were actually mounted on the chassis, the wheels/tires would not extend beyond the Warrior GT wheel openings.

Remember......'old fart' is a term of endearment......and I expected an ex-ranger to handle the comment a little better. Maybe you're hanging around with the wrong kind of influence.

If you mean the one that looks like the "McLaren" then some of the guys here have used it. I haven't used it but the guys that have it like them.

Scary, help us understand what makes the Team C car illegal? Does it not fit in the IFMAR or ROAR box? Oh that's right, those sanctioning bodies still don't even recognize the 1/8 GT class. Perhaps you were referring to your local track's rules?

Just ignore him, that's what the rest of us do! I run a Team C here, and so do 3 other people. So yeah, we don't exclude the Team C car!

So far verdict is everybody that has seen it or driven it is in love. Great quality kit. Awesome fit and finish. Material quality is top notch. It's a much more modern design compared to the Kyosho and Ofna cars. Will it be a winning edge on the track? I don't know about that one. Has a grip load of steering however because of that the back end is really loose. I think that at a large race the podium will be taken by drivers, not chassis's. But the Team C out of the box is leaps and bounds ahead of the Kyosho and Ofna, those 2 you just have to buy the upgrades separately. The 2 speed is a very nice shoe type. No complaints with it really.

With the Team C GT8/GT8L its just nice to have a true kit aimed at serious racers. Not like Kyosho's GT2 Pro kit joke. This is a true kit, with quality components and has the upgrades out of the box.
