Yes this is the Team C car dist. by OFNA, so now we have the car with inventory stock of kits and parts here in the U.S. so now trying to get parts for it will be easier for shops to order direct from us or their Distributors, no need to wait for weeks for replacement parts.

Right kits are here parts are on their way, other awsome products that you will want to have from Team C brought into by OFNA. You gonna love this stuff

I saw the 'TeamC' run with the Cobra GT at Timezone GP this last summer and it did very well. Like many will tell you, 'it's many times the driver that makes the difference'. 'Spooky' was running in the front group in A Main GT8 until his 1way problem flared up...again. But our 'Terrible Ty' with this being his first year racing got the bump from B Main and finished 5th in the A Main with his TeamC (also with 1way problem). You must understand that 'Paulo' was running the Cobra GT with an amazing display of driving......I called it 'surgically slicing through traffic'. All I could say was wow. The TeamC....(OFNA)....turns quicker than my Kyosho GT but I'm hoping Kyosho addresses the issue with new caster blocks...hint...hint...hint.

Spooky won't give up his TeamC but Terrible TY and his dad ('Dog Bone') are running Cobra GT now.

Long or short, the TeamC guys love them.......so I'll be the one to tell OFNA (1) deal with the failure rate in the 1way and (2) put the 150cc tanks in them!

I can't give up my Kyosho GT......so I'm over in the corner working on 'Project MONGOOSE'....

I have not driven the car yet but waiting for one to run, so the one-way bearing is something to see, the tanks will be 125cc in the kits but we will certainly offer the 150cc as option.

Already tested it on my home track in Chile - Southamerica.

Comparing it with DM1S, its have more agility entering/exiting curves, it launches very hard compared to DM1S, 2-speed very consistent on the shifting, overal great car.

Downside, pinion/spurs relation is too short, i mean over 40-45 meters straight and it gets too short and we didnt had other options to test.

Now, we put the 2 speed box of the GTV2 on the old DM1S ... WOOOOOOOOOWWWWW on 16/20 pinions was already faster than the longer ratio of the DM1S ... i will race test it this coming weekend.

regards,

Does that mean that the 2-speed and clutch bell/pinions will interchange between the Team C car and the DM-1? More spefically, can you run a Team C CB in the DM-1?

I tried the other way around ... GTV2 Spur set and full 2 speed system on 16/20 and 17/21 DM1S CB's ...
