I think with the new 15/21, 46/40 gearing, it should zip down that stretch a bit quicker now. And yes, I am still running the stock engine even though it is the second engine (from Zootcapri) for the car (blew the first one up using 30% nitro).

I think you'll be surprised how fast it actually is with this new gearing even with GXR28

Yes, it is still kicking. I added an extra head shim to it and am using 20% nitro. It has a TQ at a big race in Memphis, TN and a few club wins under its belt at the Bass Pro Series in Jackson, MS. This one seems like a Timex, been taking a lickin' and just keeps on tickin'!!!

Here are pics of my new Ferrari body for my IGT car. Just picked it up earlier today and have not cut it out or placed decals just yet.





I am having my PF8-GT painted with the same scheme.

Just a bit off-topic, here are pics of my other 1/8th scale onroad car: Mugen MRX4R




The body in the second picture won me concourse at the Region 9 regional. Notice the paint scheme.

Thinking about picking up a IGT2 myself. Got to see what the budget looks like, though. Might have to get rid of a few cars that I no longer race.
