You would just need to add mount holes for moving front trans mount forward and open chassis pan for second gear for trans.

Took my first drive with new kyosho GT3 . Car rotated well around the corners and defiantly faster then my last car IGT8. Still trying to get my hands on the perfect set up for the car but it was a god first time out . Nothing's Broken!!
Started with 50,000 f / 15,000 r
Shocks 800Cst front and rear
Rest is by book .
Back is a little slippery on exit of corner but driveable just need to be real smooth pulling the trigger .

😎 You are hereby declared 'THE' Man. (not a derogatory note) 😛

You have ventured into 'unknown territory' and by your own efforts survived.....unharmed. It's interesting to hear that it gave you quicker times than previous cars.

Your 'low' choice of front diff grease interests me. I probably would have started with 80k or 100k but in the absence of any '*~#+#\'' help from Kyosho in the manual.....you did good to get acceptable performance.

CONGRATS !!

Hey thanks I am going to try different oils for the next time I run her . Was thinking about trying 100,000 up front and 30,000 in the rear . That should help keep the rear steady after the apex of the corner . But if any of you guys have any ideas don't hesitate to spit it out I am willing to give it a try .

So today was the first official race for my gt3 . 4 qualifiers finished in the B main , got bumped up to the A main . Not bad for second time on the track . Made some changes since the last time I ran the car adjusted swaybars about 3mm front and back . Lowered rear link on tower and car felt better using s4 compound . Switch over to S2 compound and car definitely had more traction every were but I favored the S4's . I have a video of car running but don't know how to post it.

Been out testing and the car is getting better and better. The corvette body doesn't give the car enough front down force so it pushes a little in the corners. I need another body that supplies more frontal down force . What's the best body for these long wheel base cars?

Hi,

Good to see you running and testing this new car.
I also have the Corvette body and I noticed you find a lot of difference if you incline the body (rake) with the back end higher. Obviously be careful the large front splitter does not contact the ground when braking (dive)

Also. I was able to cut the rear wing smaller (width/ chord) This I also found helped.

Maybe I'm a little bias but I do like the Corvette body!

I hope this helps.

Regards
BM

Compare the nose profile of the new Protoform Corvette GT2. I've seen good comments on it's better track feel. Mine will be the GT (short version though).

Make sure when ordering to get the correct one for GT (short) or GT2 (long).
