Great Idea but it really should of happened sooner

With it being in LA this year, I'm sure they will pick another part of the Country for next year, (2014). Plus I want to make sure my (Oregon) ducks are in a row, and not submit something half ass.

I'm not a huge on road guy, on here or at the track and part of the reason is all the BS drama that seems to come with it. When I do come in here to check the on road threads the drama always seems to evolve around a couple people, AND IT'S GETTING OLD!!!

If you look around and can't figure out who I'm talking about; it's probably YOU!

On road has enough trouble surviving, which is sad because it's fun. If you can't help be part of the solution, at least stop being part of the problem..or we will do it for you.

and yes, that is a warning.

Well that kind of puts a dampener on things ........
Moving on.
I have good feelings with people working on different chassis and the likely hood that more people will then get involved in Nitro GT.
I can see there will be some good racing and cars next year.
That will be when I will be able to race my GT.....

Looking foreword to that. ...... This winter I think I will be running an F1 car :-)

You will love running F1. That is what I am running at my LHS carpet track. What model F1 are you running?

Well, for the ones who sent me internal messages and emails asking about Agama GT project, this note is just to let you know that Agama Racing factory officially asked us for detailed pics and explanations of all the mods we did into the buggy chassis to make it GT and raceable.

I dont know if this will end with a production kit, but at least the videos and pics that we already sent to factory had certain impact and thats good for now ...

If there is any news in the future i will let you know ... and thanks again for your interest and good words for the project ...

regards

That's Awesome News, any interest is better then none. Btw NICE work, did have a couple questions is the chassis flat like the Xray buggy and what are the diff and diff pinion teeth count.
When I convert the HotBodies D8 a couple years ago, it had a ton of torque but could never get the top end we have now even geared to the moon.

We used 10/43 pinion/ring ... and is a buggy chassis so it has kickup
