GT or GT1 is the 'short chassis' (325mm wheelbase)

GT2--->>>GT3 'long chassis' (360mm wheelbase) GT3 is the newest GT from Kyosho based on their MP9/TK14 buggy.

Other manufacturers just call their cars GT.......you have to check 'specs' for advertised wheelbase.

  • GT: Our original GT tires debut on Sep/2010. larger in diameter. later we debut GT EXP as well which is Hybrid rubber.
  • GT2: Debut on early 2018, smaller diameter, low profile tires. Hybrid rubber. (recommended for natural asphalt)
  • GTR2: Debut on late 2018, same as GT2, Pro compounds Hybrid rubber. (recommended for sealed asphalt)
More information coming!

<#GTR2 Tires tip> #GT8
1: Because of the ultra low profile shape of the tire, you may experience Steering gains 1st time when you mounted, please do not de-tune your front end to understeer, this can be resulting in excess heat on front tires.
2: if you found any cracks starting of cracks on the outside bead (where the rubber meet wheel) drop of CA glue is needed. otherwise, that can continue cracks to shorten the tires life span. This crack starts from understeer GT8 machines.
