Those are getting hard to come by here lately! I do know of a few guys that plan on getting new kits for the year though. if you do find a good deal on a long chassis it will cost around 120 to convert to short. it is just the chassis and rear center shaft.

ROAR rules are just that Roar rules.

Just don't attend Roar events and don't pay for a Roar membership. Many of you fail to understand you the racer control Roar or any other organization.

IGT8F is growing getting more registered users daily and working directly with various manufacturers, tracks and shop owners to actual improve growth and continuing to support what we have established and been doing for the last 4 years.

If you don't see the power you possess, they have already won.

there are also no liscensed short chassis bodies!! The big picture is that there are only maybe two events that would even actually have enough Gt racers with the current rules. Exhibitions were tried and failed. It really means nothing . they have alienated pretty much the entire class...

My problem and many others in my area is that nitro killed onroad racing for many years. The noise made it so you couldn't setup a track any where and all the tracks shut down. I ended up selling all my cars and flying planes and helicopters for 10 years. Electric has brought racing back to northern Virginia and most of the onroad tracks are electric only. As much as I'd like to attend some of these big events Igt8 And roar seem to be completely ignoring the electrics. You'd see a lot more participation in gt8 if some of these events and organizations included the electrics.
