Dont waste your money as gashuffer said its just a different color chassis, and comes with a lame sirio as you mentioned

It doesnt even come with a body or the updated 2 speed thats Lame

Better to by the rtr kit for less sell the new engine and radio gear etc and upgrade.

End of the summer Kyosho will be out with the new GT just in time for winter

Serpent Cobra GT if it ever gets released would be nice

will it really be a GT3....or just GT2 with new radio (2.4MHz and new bodies)?

I was told just new bodies and radio....not even upgraded 2 speed. They need some more top end ratios......

This car is a suckers bet. I say buy a used one. There are so many changes that have to be done to make it competitive. Tom give a danny a good price


I have had this car about 3 weeks here's the tally so far

GT1 used $200
2 Speed $100
Acre Breaks and pads $60
Sweep tires $60
Savox 1258 servo for steering $70
Oils,Diff lube and Gas $60.00
Big Bore Shocks $94
Novarossi Kangaroo Syd $379
2015 pipe and short manifold w/springs $110

racing at floyd is agressive, the stock motor wont cut it. I chose the gt1 because of the shortened wheel base. Otherwise this thing pushes like a dump truck. With the likes of TonyQ and Rob B you need to keep up IMO.
For bashing RTR is great but racing not even close and for $600-$700 id buy my choice of motor ty! Which I did by the way!

I have one of the pro kits in our shop, and I'm offering to throw in the new 2-speed to anyone that buys it.

I thought everyone would be useing to impenema two speed conversion by now. to thoes who have used it. does it not hold up? I was thinking with that set up if it was possible to use the evolva's clutch. Which would give a greater range of gear ratio's.

true. However, IGW008 is good allaround setup for GT2, I don't think anyone actually needs anyhting else. I've tested a lot of them, incl. Evolva setup that is similar to Ipanema (which uses same parts) on several different track layouts. But if you happen to have the Ipanema tranny, it's good to use it, nevertheless.
