This is definitely a premium kit not really aimed at the street basher, so I would assume it will be in the same ball park of the 811 Cobra buggy $500-$550. Only reason I see them charging a little more for this kit over the buggy is because of the 2 speed transmission.

Unlike 1/8th pan cars where there is only a few top end chassis, you will probably see a plethora of current 1/8th off-road competition chassis manufactures releasing on-road GT versions of their buggies. This will allow for a wide variety of choice and hopefully keep prices competitive.

I'm sure HB will also release something for the budget conscious racer for this class.

Good times ahead for the GT on-road racing.

We have received final pricing for the Cobra GT and it will be the same as the Cobra TE buggy. You can check with your favorite/local dealer for exact pricing but street price will be around $560.

Hey Doug, do you think we might see a cobra GT demo at the next state race? Another question if you don't mind sir, what pipe and header were used on Rinos $200 Nova Rossi N21 5?

Joaquin, will have a Cobra GT with him at the Arcadia FORGASS Race in April and Paolo will be racing another Cobra GT at the RC Pro Nationals in Porter, TX. I will have to check with Rino about his pipe and header combo or if he sees this post he may go ahead and let us know before I see him.

I watched Rino and Joaquin do some testing at Homestead when they first got the pre-production cars. I was expecting boredom but was happily surprised with the performance they were getting from their cars almost immediateley upon putting them on the track. Much easier to follow and so realistic watching them go around the track.

Thats cool. So there is a really good chance we will see it run.
They looked good in the videos from the P.R. race, but there is nothing like seeing it for yourself.
Thanks jneg.

I just talked with Rino. He was using the Novarossi 2015 pipe with the long 41020 long curved manifold on the N21-5T. Paolo was using the Novarossi 9901 pipe with the 41020 long curved manifold on the 21 Flash Rally.
