Default 18T - 18MT

So, the only difference between the 18T and the 18MT are the tires and the body? I thought I heard somewhere that there was a different motor in the MT, one with more torque.

I also wanted to know if the MT has more ground clearence than the 18T, or if they are both the same. I don't actually like the look of the 18MT, but I just wanted to get this straight.

Also, opinions... 18T or Kyosho Inferno Half-8.

I gotta say, they both look really cool, and they are both impressive, but which one is better overall? I hear a lot of people talking about the 18T, but not many people talking about the Half-8. Is there anything that sets one apart? I have my own "Theories" but I want to hear what you guys think.

Differences besides the obvious tires and body. Gearing is different.... T has 14/55, MT has 10/60 to compensate for the tires. Motors are now the same. Early T's had a small motor. Ground clearance will be about 1/4" more with the MT.


Only looked at a Mini Inferno on a LHS counter. Did not drive it. It does not have oil shocks. IMO, the fake cylinderhead is stupid. Who are they trying to kid?
