With that DTM A4 body...yeah, I would buy that IGT II in a heartbeat, on top of that, more and more organize race (MWS, Roar National, GLC, Byron National...etc) are popping left and right...so bigger is always better. Only downside is very hard to drive on typical parking lot club racing (unless it is a hugh parking lot club racing...)
About 1/8th...it is easy to drive if you don't care to get to the A-main...but if you want to get to the A. money, skill and setup are all kicks in...it is more expensive then sedan...
1/10th Sedan is still the best average all around class...at least in my standard.

Depends on what's going on in my area. Since we have a serious race scene and a fantastic track (301 Raceway), I'd go for a 1/10 kit. Mugens, Kyoshos, Xrays and Serpents are always on the prowl out there.

But if I were just starting out, I's get either the Inferno GT or the Ofna DM-1. Durable, fast, and can either bash or race in RTR form without spending $1,200+ to race competitively.

1/8 Mugen by far has been the easiest and reliable to build and set-up. I know its like kicking a dead horse but if 2wd came back I would jump on that in a heart beat

Hey R2, what tires are those...? GRP? Looks very very nice (I meant your Protoform body...) however, I think it is a little bit too low....IGT type of cars like to roll alot to be fast...(I am sure that is for picture purpose only)

Steve's GTP II has a firm suspension and rolls just a lil and those wheels he made using our foam and wheels, we have the wheels with a narrow front(86110) and a wide rear(86111) but it may be harder to mount our foam now on to the wheels now that our foam is glued on the other wheels and those are for show now but when we race we use PMT tires, I'll try to post a pic of the car with the tires and his ride hieght.

Default GT2

Does any one have any idea when the GT2 is going to hit the store? I'm running 1/10 scale now. The GT guys at the track just look like there having some much fun. I can't wait for it to get here.
