(AMain 'banner add' that comes up on here was showing Corvette at $489.99, Ferrari at $584.99, Audi at $489.99 but when you go to the AMain site they are "out of stock".
Yeah, Ferrari don't like them "bootlegger's" very much, gotta pay to use that name.

That bar attaches on top of the blue metal plate on top of the transmission mounts found on the nitro versions and the other end bolts to the lower chassis plate.

Is that the IGT chassis you just bought from that "know it all" guy?

Post up some pictures of the transmission out of the car and lets see whatcha got there )
Not sure what you mean. I know plenty of "know it all guys" especially here In Houston haha Bought the igt2 from amain lol. I did figure out the problem. I did not tighten the 2nd gear spur onto the housing enough and the screws were sticking out just a bit and we're hitting the clutches. All is well for now.

Mark,

Here's a picture of where the bar mounts to the top end, should give you some ideas for your application. Good luck

Step 1.....Take the stock tires off and put them up for decoration...get a set of Medium Alpha's or 50 Shore Sweeps to start ..the stock motor is a .25 and really is a typical beginner motor with a pullstart...as you develop skills you will outgrow that mil real fast and get yourself a quality 5 port .21 motor then....at least you will be ROAR legal with 5 ports ! welcome to starter boxes and the REAL world when that day comes !...good luck.. GT is realistic and fun !

Step 1. Go break in the engine with the stock tires... This is all they are useful for.
Step 2. Get some Alpha or Sweep tires.
Step 3. Go have fun.
