The 2015 version should be announced by the end of this week.
I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting patiently for this announcement

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.
im sorry, but i'm just gonna pause ya right there...
apart from the 4 piece clutch and carbon fibre battery tray and receiver cover, the parts you have listed have actual item numbers from the factory. unless you have some parts of your own that actually sets it apart from other x3 gt that are hopped up, i really see the product as just.. X3 GT.

i think the designers at Hong Nor, however slow they are at introducing new parts... deserves more credit than having their product name and brand taken away by a reseller.

From my understanding....Hong Nor is a huge manufacturing company, just like Team C in China.
They do have designers and engineers, but that is to make any part, kit or accessories for X number of customers. My understanding is that if you order in X number of anything they will brand it, box it, label it a make it to your specifications.

With that being said, once they have your specs or design. There is nothing stopping them from selling your SPEC parts or design to anyone else.

Yes a majority of the IGT8 car is made by Hong Nor, but not 100% of it. IGT8 uses several manufacturers throughout the world including the USA to make their parts to IGT8 specs and complete a kit. This is to avoid anyone company being able to rebrand an identical IGT8 kit.

Btw Evil Knievel toy worth some $$$ now.

Wow didnt know the IGT8 was built in China (actually I think Taiwan) and it shares most parts with the X3 gt
Was going to get one but after hearing this I'll stick with Serpent as of now.
I thought IGT8 was made by Lino and was a redesign of the xray car, I guess I was completely wrong.
I have nothing against it, it won a big race recently
Now if only the big companies would join in like Xray, Mugen, Tekno and Losi to name a few with buggies that can be converted to GT.

That Evil Knievel toy was the best
