Also what do you think of the engine, does anyone have experience with it and is it good and or fast? I also just bought an Alpha R1 body and another R8 for the car to see which I like better. I am looking into track racing and want to be competitive. I'm in Maryland, are there any good tracks still in the area? Last Question are there any other upgrades I should look into to get my car up to speed? I will post some pics soon. Thanks for any reply.
Upgrades to consider:
Servos - Savox 1268 for steering with a 0252 for throttle. This will give you almost mirrored input to your car with a decent Radio.
Radio - if you are running the RTR radio invest in a Airtronics or Futaba, you can never go wrong with a good radio. Make sure they are capable of DualRate as this will be Very Usefull with the beast Roma and if you are not use to twitchy steering from the Savox 1268.
Tires - are a Must!!! Get some of your favorite tires as this will make or break your car at the track. I recommend Sweeps EXP 50s with the GTLS insert. Solid tire and also the Spec tire for some major events.
Roma 25 - A few of the racers here in Utah have the Roma 25 or the OS25. most of us have found them to have too much torque causing the car to be really tough to control on power (coming out of a corner). With that being said the Roma is a flat out beast and there really isn't much you could put into a GT that could keep up with it on tight track. The OS and Roma eat up the .21s down the straits here ~100" and well its a Novarossi. Expect a really long life and tons of power out of it you have a winner if you can control the power!
Experience - this is the most valuable asset to any racer. Get as much drive time as you can. If you are at a Race and there are breaks get out on the track. Once you get your car dialed its all up to you and that experience is going to pay big time. Remember Slow is Smooth, Smooth is fast!
Enjoy yourself - After racing a season with GT I've been spoiled with great people and great times. I've traveled many miles to race and the experience was amazing. Thanks to the guys at Timezone!!! Locally we have a great group that are competitive but are laid back once we are off the track. Find yourself a mentor and stick to their heels. Watch the fast guys and study what they are doing on and off the track. Most of the fast guys I have raced with have been more than helpful to those that ask. Find the right person but don't get too clingy. Keep this person as a reference for when you get stumped. You will find there are different types of fast guys, one will show you how to dial in your car so he can beat you with driving, the other will show you a little bit but neither will show you all the secrets. There a dues to pay and the track is where you pay them. Remember experience is where you are going to get fast.
As far as gearing and other specific questions to the Kyosho Inferno I ma not 100% sure. I haven't raced one in a while, there are some really great resources on here hopefully they will chime in.
