Default GT / GT2 setups...

I have been looking around here and on Inferno pro boards for setups for these cars. I have to say there is not much out there at all.

So what setup are you running?
Stock out of the box?
Changing tires? Which brand / shore or spec. Using a tire compound?
Changing shock fluids? shock postions?
Changing diff fluids? can you adjust the diffs for a little slip? what is the set screw accessible externally from the diff?

What kind of track are you running on? Asphalt (smooth track or Parking lot)?
Track have VHT applied? or any other traction compound?
What is your driving style? How are your lines?
Track temp and outdoor temps?

I personally am interested in what people are running on true race asphalt tracks. But I am sure many will enjoy any setup you can post..

Thanks///

Although it does not have any race setups for the GT/GT2 (other than
blanks).

It is however a good place to shop for parts.

Default Inferno GT2

The setup for an out of the box IGT2 is really nice. The only thing I changed, was the tires. I'm runnung kyosho 55 slicks. And for being my first 1/8 nitro car, it handles almost as good as my 1/10 electric car.

Ipanema slicks are the hot ticket. http://ipanemasports.com/default.aspx
They are belted and come preglued, very high quality tires.

http://infernogt.proboards.com/index.cgi? Has the most information for the IGT1 and 2 of any.

Here's my setup.

I only changed a few things .....the shock oils, their positions, added diff oils, camber changes, ackerman position, and ride height, droop, and preload

Guam, come-on, just got lucky

Mika, have you just tried to copy your set-up from last season on the new car?

Only real difference I'm running now with the IGT2 is went to 120K front diff oil, springs and the Black Hawk SR Transmission.

Dude, go middle position on the rear bulkhead and go short on the upright for mad weight transfer, you might like it and shorten length with upright spacers in back. too cool
