    Sorry, but have not been on RC Tech for a week or so. I liked the DM1, but required much work to get it down in weight. Also gear boxes, will need to be rebuilt often if pushed hard. X3 / IGT8 comes in at weight, better gear boxes and probably the smoothest drive line of all GT's even the new Mugen.

    The right gearing with the engine is critical with all GT's. Weight of DM1 works engines, tires, brakes and diff's the hardest.

    IMO the Serpent has best part support but need additional parts to make it work. Mugen not quite right on front suspension (building one currently) but good part support and diff's make it good. IGT8, best bang for the dollar but part support has been hit or miss since OFNA quit bringing in the kits. If this gets solved, will be my car of choice.

    hello I have been following gt8 for awhile now and I have a few questions if you don't mine.
    1st I have a dm-1 I got it used but never ran due to work and kids. what made this car out of date outside of parts I see gt8 cars now around the same weight now. and comparing your igt8 to your dm-1 how much faster is it?
    I also noticed a lot of gripe on the dm-1 pivot ball a arms and now mugen is out .is there an advantage with the pivot ball arms?

    Over all is it the progression and learning curve in the tunning and or is the motors that make the serpent,mugen,igt8 faster then the dm-1 thanks in advance.
