Default IGT8 - Nitro 1/8 Scale GT

Thought it was time to start a new thread as IGT8 has agreed to continue to move forward with the X3 based product. They have had good success providing the right parts that should have been, and most racers have put on the car. I've raced the car since March last year and very happy with it. The car in the hands of Rino and DJ, have taken wins which shows the potential of this car.

I'll post in the next day or two, a set up that was working well at the Airtronics race in LA back in February. Maybe we can get Rino to share his from the win at the Winter Nationals as well. Or DJ's set up from his South American win.

In talking with the guys, they just got a new shipment of parts late last week, so parts should be a little easier to get.

Default Set Up Sheet

Attached is the set up sheet I was working on for the Airtronics race in LA. Track had 150+ entries, so good traction, so for club tracks, rear grip may need be to increased. But this is a good starting point.

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.

Here's a pic to get this thread going. Car has carbon fiber steering plate. 1.9+ rear hubs. 10* c-hubs. Used it for the first time this weekend. Ran great. Handled great. Stopped great. Plenty of steering.

I've stayed away from the aluminum nose, but have had no issues since I super glue the plastic part in place and up the screw size to 3mm. Have not lost one in over a year.

Looks like IGT8's did well this past weekend:

Tony Luna - TQ and win in the South West Series Race

I qualified 3rd and finished 3rd at the 1st HOA race in Lincoln, NE. Not bad while breaking in a new Picco GT engine and loosing one day to rain ....

Also, got Patrick up to 6th in the same race, his first time out racing the car .....
