yes you can but we find that the car maybe a lil on the heavy side and boogs down the clutch that why we've been running off road engines because they have the torque.

no your engine should cost around $200, there aren't really any onroad .21 that are available for that kinda money

this is going to be a REALLY really fun class of racing, and i hope it builds in popularity
I agree, and I also hope to see it grow. Here locally it does seem to be getting more popular.

I'm an off-roader, who is having a total blast running the GTS class. I've ran on-road in the past, but it just never really clicked for me. Running the 1/8 GT/ITC class at the ROAR Reg. 12 race put on by GLARC was soo much fun, that I've put up the offroad stuff for a bit, and I'm concetrating just on the 1/8 GT/ITS racing for right now...

See everyone at the KO Propo Gran Prix...

I like that...Thanks Sam/Nigel (don't know which of you it is)...

Another day wishing I was at the track...lol

Why can't I just get paid to race...Oh yeah, I'm not good enough...lol

Either way, might get some wheel time Sat. at CP, getting it ready to try and see if I can keep up with you fast guys at the KO race...It's going to be a blast...

Well gentleman, it has been very informative reading all your different posts regarding the GT class, I am leaning towards the purchase of a dm-1 spec and my question is this. How do you all think an OS V-Spec would run in one of these? I have a couple of them laying around that would drop in there nicely. Thanks in advance.

Default IGT/GT2 Class

I am really new to the whole on-road scene. Been racing 1/8 nitro off-road buggy for a while. I recently bought a new Kyosho Audi DTM GT2 car and I am trying to wrap my head around the "class" this car will run in for races. Am I reading the information correct that this will run in the IGT class or the GT class? Clarification requested. Thanks.

P.S. Looking for regional tracks/racing in the Southeast.

The OS engine should work fine...I am using an older Picco EVO2 and has plenty power for the car.

Alex,

There is a great deal of "GT" racing in the SouthEast.

Georga & Florida have good groups racing on nice tracks.

In Florida we're racing with the FORGASS State Series on the big tracks. Just had an event at Fort Myers' "The Fort" and next race is at "Kraceway" near Orlando. Kraceway is one of the most awsome tracks in America.

You'd have a great time racing your Audi A4 over there. BTW, you're going to have fun with that car of yours, its a winner!

Cool thanks! I look forward to discovering the places to race. I am in Norcross, GA near Atlanta and there is a group of guys that race at an abandon track near here (SugarBowl) but I am wondering outside of Atlanta what there might be. I will check out the Florida tracks, that one sounds awesome in Orlando.

Looking at the FORGRASS classes, so the GT2 car would be in the GT SPEC class?

Both cars are good, the DM-1 spec a little better.
