Ok . The GT car is close to a 10th scale on most tracks. Really seems to be a growing class . They are a tank. We can run different tracks with out a lot of changes. On radar 53 to 55 on the straightaway. Now on the same track our 1/8 scale on the same straightaway 66 to 70 . But the 1/8th scale ran faster times at the 66 mph straightaway​ speed. Just remember top speed dose not mean the fastest times .

I figured the 1/8th was fastest top speed and on track. So the gt is slightly slower to the 1/8? How does it drive? I've only driven touring cars

gt's are noticeably slower than 1/8 or 1/10 cars

for the current layout at my local track, fast times are more like
1/8 18.'s
1/10 20.'s
1/8gt 22.'s
1/5 24.'s

Default 1/8th onroad

This class is one of the most exciting forms of racing and if it's speed and power this is where you need to be ,but the learning curve for this class is huge so it will take some time to learn the car! I love this car it reminded me of the 235mm class which was a smaller version of the 1/8th car!
