LOL

Evolva development has stopped already, I think.

I believe GT3 will be identical to the current models with IGW008 tranny and new bodies, no? Audi R8 to be the first of the new ones

Those damn little Mini-Z's. And they send me a press release for each one they come out with, they are so proud of them!

well I'm biased but the mini-z's are awesome. I've been racing them for over 6 years. Based on the ever increasing prices of them though, they are more then just proud of them.

I honestly don't care what the new GT car is, as long as they continue a GT line. Whether its the 7.5 base, MP9, 777, or a purpose built GT like the DM-1s! I just don't wanna see Kyosho step out of this rapidly growing class!

I can assure you that Kyosho is NOT getting out of the class that they created.

I would recommend a full carbon fiber kit from Max Velocity racing it will Lighten the car significantly it will also stand the steering and throttle servos up which help eliminate extra moving parts that could fail and take some of the risk of side impact away.Its will also stand the front shocks up this will give you more tuning options. A aluminum front lower pin holder will be good also. If the DM1 take a hit on the front wheels the lower pin holder breaks sometimes.

If you have the brakes solved, you need to get an aluminum holder for the lower front arms. Might also get the upper rear bracket, the one close to the exhaust header, as it does heat up the plastic. These can be found from Max Velocity, King Headz, YBSlow (see IGT Hobbies as he normally has all in stock). You might also look at the Max Velocity front and rear shock mount, King Headz chassis and Max Velocity stand up servo mount.

BUT this class should be fun, so all you really need is the first item. All the rest as you want or need.

Here is a famous quote I recall from while back......"Mini Z racing will make a driver out of you". To this day, I truely believe Mini Z racing helped me to become a better RC car driver overall.
