When you say hop up suspension block, are you referring to the suspension bracket inserts or the CNC suspension holder set?

this is the part... is going to give you more corner speed going (in) the turns, more for hi traction tracks.

I take it this does not come In the IGT8 PRO KIT........ Does this have something to do with the handling characteristics of the car,and how it sits squats & rolls ?

No, they do not come in the kit. Yes, are used for fine tune the suspension...
The car that won the homestead race in sportsman class, and the second place in Pro class, use the factory location suspension holders.

Thanks Jermaine,

IGT8 does a lot more than rebranding an X3 GT and the differences are as follows:

Different Internal Ratio
Different pinion gears
Double brake system with metal discs and pads
150cc. Fuel Tank
Lower Engine mount
Chassis Roll Bar
4 Shoe GT Clutch and clutch bell assembly
Carbon Fiber Battery and Receiver covers

And to be released "The IGT8 Pro 2015 version"

Harder Servo Saver Spring
Rear CVD and Aluminum Insert for rear bulkhead
Bearings for servo saver shafts and brake levers.
Wider front wheel hexes

All this in a kit version for the racer to build.

X3 GT and IGT8 might share the same geometry but at the same time a lot of changes have been made to consider them the same car. Not to mention full support national and international at any of the main GT events from the factory and distributors located in all Central and South America.

IGT8 is making GT racing more affordable without sacrificing performance and durability and is proving to be the best product right out of the box intended for serious racers looking to perform at their best on this fast growing class.

Will this kit contain the 10 degrees C hubs & the said suspension holder set that was mentioned earlier ? Any ideals on how soon this kid will be coming out ? Will a hardworking average Joe be able to afford this new racer version of the IGT8 ???

Those are optional items that are not needed and are used as a tuning option, in fact most drivers with the optional suspension blocks ended up using them in the stock position. The 10 degree C hubs used by some of the racers was more a driver preference to fit their driving style. We recommend starting with the stock setup as most drivers have give us great feedback from it.

The 2015 version should be announced by the end of this week.
