Looks smooth!

You should get the optional pads & disc brake upgrades for it too.

Heres a picture of my IGT, its only driven on Sundays, lol


Thanks. I just got the Aston Martin and can't wait to run it. We hope to have a Spec class running with us in Atlanta this season. I am really excited about this class. I can tell there are a few things I want to do to get the car the way I want it. I want the front brace, faster servoes, sway bars, upgraded steering linkage between the servo and the servo saver.

Id also suggest that you also get the Kyosho part # IFW124B Suspension Holder Set.

The optional blocks allow you to adjust the front caster and rear toe-in of the Inferno GT car a little better for changes in track conditions.

If youre ever in the neighborhood, please feel free to come on down to SS Raceway in Tampa Florida to race your IGT with us.

Our Spec class program for the IGTs is a whole lotta fun!

Thanks for the tip on the IFW124B. I will get this part. I am really excited about trying this car out.

Default 1/8th BUGGY GT MOD lol?

That looks like it would catch on.I am going to buy a 1/8th losi buggy and you can put any GT body on the buggy and tarmac tires and it's good to go.What mods would I have to do to the buggy I'm new to this RC stuff but I can see how this is a good idea and I don't see why it won't work.

IGT suspension is rather different from offroad
2-speed also adds some onroad excitement and feeling compared to buggies

The cool headlights under the body will pop off with the first contact. I had one come off during a heat and pulled the other off so that I wouldn't lose it.

The Losi8 buggy could make a fine “Rally” car too. It’s a real good chassis for off-road racing.

You’ll need to experiment with different bodies to see what would clear the stock off-road shock towers or fabricate smaller towers and use front shocks in the rear too.

In Europe they call these classes “Rally Game”, some searching on the internet could find out if they’re using these chassis and maybe pick up some useful tips for it too.

The Losi8 could work very well with the single speed center diff, the need for a 2-speed would depend on how “open” or “technical” the track it would be racing on. I guess a 2-speed could be adapted if none were available from the manufacturer.

In a worst case scenario, if it wasn’t competitive as a “Rally GT” car with the 1-speed center diff, it could always be turned back into a monster off-road buggy again.

Ok, good to know! Propably put some additional alum tape inside, also to the sides.
