Questions?? World's Fastest Kyosho?

Whats up RCTECH! I am curious what the fastest(top speed) Kyosho out there is. After some research, the fastest I found is this bad ass 123 mph Inferno buggy from Kuwait.

I just went a little faster and was wondering if anyone knows of something faster. Thanks.

Kyosho GT2 VE. Pretty basic setup....Leopard 1600kv, XL2, 8s, geared 30/34.
Went 126 mph a couple days ago. Still trying to work out some issues with the batteries. Im waiting on a new set which should be here this week. She still got plenty left in her. I haven't even tried my 34T pinion yet. Its a solid car.

Thanks phildogg. I definitely will keep it up with the Kyosho. It should be faster than my TC4 soon since they are still lagging with my NEU motor.

I am also almost done building this new Mugen Seiki MGT7 eco. It will replaced my retired and deceased OFNA GTP2E haha. I just need to figure out how to make a spool to replace the center diff.

Thanks man. The MGT7 is a pretty damn good car so far. Really reminds me of the GTP2E but just much better quality. Im probably not even gonna use it until I figure out how to gear it up. Its painfully slow rite now haha. Im gonna try to make a spool once the parts come in. The only problem with it is that it costs an arm and a leg hahaha.

I'm working on one myself. Traded an e-buggy to a guy on clist locally for an Inferno GT2 VE but didn't realize what terrible shape the car was in. Ended up replacing the chassis, steering assembly, bumper, body mounts, tires/wheels, and I'm waiting on a 2mm body from deltaplastiksusa to round it all out.

I'm kind of bummed about getting a raw deal but I'm okay with taking a loss sometimes if it means that I get to try something new.

Tires I replaced the stockers with are the SPRacing winter compound, so sticky they actually kind of stick to your finger when you touch it.

I think a lot of folks have issues with the body not being rigid enough with the stock bodies, I know the corvette body that came with mine flexes like crazy at anything over 50mph. Instead of shimming or replacing the bumper I decided to just get a thicker body.

Are you running the stock shocks? If so, what weight do you have in front/back?
