I'll keep searching info but thought I'd check in with you guy first.

Thanks

Hey Bud,
That Article is by Tony Phalen who runs at our tracks all the time. You are correct, you just need the Late Model parts and u should be good to go. Corona is outdoor, 160x80 with 12-15' lanes. Plenty of room for the GT8's. Corona has the biggest turn outs for GT8 between Surf City and Corona. Everyone is all very cool and is willing to help each other out with this awesome class! Just have to ask. =)

We even have the KING PIN making sure we runs things right, or we will hear it from the Godfather! haha

They have discontinued the Audi and Aston Martin bodies, but the Corvette and McLaren are still being produced.

We will have more in stock very soon.

Also, DP8 bodies are due in Thursday.

Sad to see those go.

Isn't there an alpha body that fits too?

You can also use the Ipanema GT Warrior body, fits both Short or long wheelbase IGT1 & IGT2 chassis. Excellent handling and proven race winner too!



You can find the GT Warrior body here:

I dont like the look of the Ipanema GT Warrior body so thats a no go for me.

Im sure it handles great but no thanks!

The Aston is the best looking of them all.

What's up Callahan... You still own the cup racer? Your builds are a work of art! Glad to see you're interested in GT8. Post some Picts of your work.. It will be inspiration for the rest of us!
