WOW, nice track and good looking car.

Thanks for your enthusiasm for the Kyosho GT. Just think, that little monster is but a 'steering fix' away from being able to get out front again like you have!!! It just 'doesn't compute' to think the Kyosho can turn as necessary without reducing the darn camber.

Post up on here on give me a PM when you start making your 'new and improved' versions!!!!!!

Thanks....

Not to mention making a new transmission but only making one set of compatible spurs to go with it. They are about to make me give up on them as well. It's just frustrating when they don't care about the customer. With all the money I put into this car I could have bought a cobra all the upgrades, spurs and piniones and still save a ton of money and end up with a better car.

The caster is long overdue for a fix. This has been hammered on by racers for the past seven years and no fix yet from Kyosho. I guess they are ok with everyone moving away to the other brands. I did.

We actually designed and built a few multiple degree caster block prototypes almost 3 years ago.

Have the patterns for 0, 3, 6 and 8 degree blocks for the IGT. They were race tested by a few of our Team guys with excellent results; they all loved them.

The tooling to mass produce them in plastic is not cheap and since some of you guys routinely enjoy bashing everything Ipanema has done for GT racing since the inception of the class we helped create in the first place....... The decision to invest money into the project was scraped; thanks to a few loud mouth haters.

Its all about “ROI” in the end, good luck.

I understand when you say that, and if at the time the kyosho was dominant in the class it was decided not to proceed with the project, now imagine that the brand is decaying in gt class ,with all the new and more advanced cars brands popping up here and there .. . the kyosho GT cars and their philosophy of doing things lead us increasingly going the way of extinction of the kyosho cars on the gt class .... I'll have to run this year even with my car and did not think to switch brands, for financial reasons only , and I like to produce parts and make adjustment parts in my cars, I enjoy it, but I think things could be easier for us, we insist on an old fashioned design ....

on the past , whem kyosho create the MP 7,5 , they thinked , this car design will last forever ...... how many years they will push the platform kyosho mp 7.5 on us ... hehehehee

I'd love to get my hands on these prototypes to race , or at least , see some pictures of them .... can you help in it ... pleasssssssse hehehehehe

I have 3 Infernos myself, one I keep as a display car with a clean Ferrari body, one is a GT2 for parking lot fun with a big block LRP .30, (lol) and one GT1 that I am currently building with every piece of good product available for it...including stuff from Dragon Racing Hong Kong..(sheesh...lol)...They actually make front hubs but I have no idea if caster corrections were designed in them..

Any Thoughts ?...I will post pics as I build...already have the lightened chassis for the MP777....
