The Inferno GT is a blast to drive but it is in no way comparable to the R40. The only skills that will translate over to the IGT from the R40 would be engine tuning and setup adjustment the two cars are so fundamently different that very little is the same other then what I've mentioned already.

The GT class cars are very different from 1/10 sedan they handle very differently and driving them is more of a handful (at speed anyway) then any 1/10 sedan I've ever driven. But they are a blast to drive and they look great going around the track in groups of 4 or more.

Agreed. The IGT cars are fun to drive. But their longer wheel base makes them a different machine from their 1/10 counterparts. If you want to hone your skills, then buy one, and drive it around in an open lot.

IGT is a great class and keeps it up to the driver rather then the money.

Not to belittle what you're saying, but isn't this true of most kit cars. I mean really, set up and driver skill makes more of a difference than money spent on a car.

All good, you would be correct.

Most of the racing groups call it the 'GT Class' As the 'I' in IGT stands for the Inferno and a Kyosho car. There are also OFNA cars in the mix and others coming.
