But according to post #1 the VE (electric version is included in this thread), right?
My intention was to be helpful

This IS the NITRO Section of the forum, if you wanted to include quantum physics in your post that's entirely up to you but this is still where most NITRO enthusiasts look for info. I was just merely pointing out you would be more likely to get your answers on the GT8 ELECTRIC thread.

Hope you get questions answered where ever you post. GL

Yes most run about 10 rear 9.5/10 front. This is on a prepped track.

Parking lots you should go up a few mm so not to rub on uneven pavement.

I just got my Inferno GT2 VE RS out for the first time on a parking lot.

Stock gearing, 4s.

Reducing the speed and the vibration will stop...

Any input?

The vibration is only at "high" speeds- I reached around 37mph with that gearing.

The body is quite soft in the front

There are NO vent holes in the body yet, all stock so far.
Sounds like the lexan body is flimsy up front and all you really need is a hi-quality form fitting foam bumper to stiffen things up to me.

Hope it helps, good luck!

I love the look of Kyosho but their engines are nice spiced up like HPI. I still own their Mini-Z

OK, I'm up to the challenge.............

Hey Steve,, consider my early posts as 'ankle biting', trying to get some response out of Kyosho for a 'fix' for the 'excessive caster' that haunts the GT cars. Did there truly exist an assembly that had less than 17 ugly degrees of caster for the Kyosho GT/GT2??????????

Love your 'Rallye Car demo video'......all I ask is a reply as to what to do to get my darn Kyosho GT to perform at a really competitive level.

PM me or send 'BAT SIGNAL'............I race my car and am facing 'extinction' unless Kyosho can back up the GT racers...................Kyosho GT crowd 'JOIN IN HERE'...................REALLY.................... .......

An assembly that could give the GT 'ANYTHING' less than 17 damn degrees would be greatly appreciated...............picture Kyosho GT on the podium instead of the ranks of "Giant Turd".................yeah, I know what the factory drivers call my beloved car..............you turkeys............

dear friend, if you expect that kyosho produces options hubs carriers , it is better to change the brand because I gave up waiting and in some days or next month I will have my hub carriers made ​​by myself so artezanal as i can ....... My idea is to use only the angle of the kick up and leave the hub carrier with zero degrees .... I intend to make the parts in aluminum, or use inserts in a standart plastic hub to modify the angle of caster, after modifying the plug holes in the piece .... in the last 4 races I participated with my custom kyosho car , we were fast enough to get 4 wins ... and this proves that it is possible to have a competitive setup and overcome their ofnas and cobras that infest the tracks so well .... I feel I am reaching the limit, and this upgrade will be needed soon to attain the next level in performance .... is sad to see that the brand that created this category is frozen in time ... and that left us with a non reliable and old project sad car , its a bomb car .... and if you dont modify parts and make upgrades , you ll never finish a race .... COME ON KYOSHO , DO NOT ABANDON YOUR FANS AND RACERS ALL OVER THE WORLD .... YOU HAVE CREATE THE GT CLASS AND NOW WE HAVE TO MAKE PARTS TO RACE FAST ENOUTH .... IS IT RIGHT ??? FOR ME NO !!! PLEASE ... MAKE SOME NEW FRONT HUBS , OR NEW FRONT HUB CARRIES ... WE NEED IT .... MAKE NEW ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION HOLDERS TOO.... WHAT HAPPEN ??? HAVE YOU FROZEN IN TIME !!! I CAN ANSWER ... YES !!!! ... AND TIME IS ON LIMITE ... IF I LL FELL ABANDON , I LL HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR BRAND AND I LL BE HAPPY WITH OTHER CAR THAT DO THE DEVELOPMENT HOME WORK ....
how many years you ll continue to produce a BIG TOY GT CAR and sell it as a "RACE SPEC" car .... this is a joke guys ....come on !!!

att
