Check out the Kyosho "SP" disc & pads. They're the best, buy them once and you're good to go for a long time. Over a year for me and they're still fine.

If it were painted right it would not flake at all. I shoe goo and screen door mesh all the impact areas of the body and repair cracks for the season with the bodies that I paint with Pactra paints... they stick and don't flake. Kyosho had a brain cramp when they painted these bodies. The right paint would not flake... at all.... I think it IS a problem as the first practice session, while dialing in the servos and suspension... some minor impacts popped the paint off. It should have been done right and then the body could be repaired pretty cleanly.

The Kyosho BMW and Ferrari bodies held up fine in the abuse of racing. No flaking on either of those bodies on my original GT.

THe IGT2 is awesome. I read on this forum about the mesh problem and adjusted it right away. So far I have not experience any issues except a few screws which needs loctit. Fun ride, looks great and parts are available online for upgrades.


Good stuff.
