Also, got Patrick up to 6th in the same race, his first time out racing the car .....
Yea, Thanks for all the help. I had a great time.

Tony, tell Pit Racer, that I apologize for taking his TQ away ......


Looking forward to racing with you guys in a few weeks at the Texas Biggie. Got my plans worked out to fit the race in while visiting one of my daughters who lives in Dallas.

Will be interested to see how the IGT8 / Serpent GT / Mugen GT goes at the ROAR Nat's this week.

Looks like a good battle shaping up at the ROAR Nationals ..... Watching from Colorado, but after 4 rounds order is: Serpent, Serpent, IGT8, Mugen All close and it will be interesting to see how the day unfolds. Desoto just gets past Rino for 2nd.

Good Luck to All the IGT8 Drivers .....

I've run 1000f/800r and 1200f/1000r in the shocks feels a little different, heavier was better at changing directions.

Diff oil, really is a preference. My car will oversteer on power out of a corner but easy to control. Really rotates well 60K/20k. I've also run lighter which seems to turn in better but is not as well planted out.

Also check your ride height. I started same front and rear, but have started to run 1 to 1 1/2 lower in the front, so try that first with your fluids before changing the shocks and or diff.

Hi there! I am a new IGT8 driver, actually first time running a 1/8th class. Got my brand new IGT8 to the US nationals ran all practice and qualifying sessions from Thursday to Saturday. Got in the C main, got in 2nd place, jumped to B and almost to the A, and what I most impressed me from the car is that I didn't touched it other just to make setup adjustments!!!! So reliability was perfect!!! It just needed a better driver !!! Started with the factory setup, then just changed the aluminum 10 degrees at the front, modified a bit the sway bars setup and that was it.. Just race and race!!!!

Another key factor to run the IGT8 is the guys from the IGT8 / Kosmic team (Rino, Manuel, Junior, DJ) Every single question I asked they took the time to guide me and made suggestions… It was simply amazing!!!! I believe I got to the right car/class!! Now planning to see any other race around Florida to get in!!!

IGT8 has the blank sheet that can be edited, if you want to do a sheet with just your setting.

Post questions here and we should be able to help.
What's the part numbers for the gold and silver springs. Also gold are for aluminum and silver for carbon?
