Yay!

Also it appears that quarantine is no longer required upon arriving at Japan. Restrictions were lifted last month. Hoping for a japan trip on the ticket for 2023!

It used to be the AMG Mercedes for Pro Spec, but the Ford GT has come on strong this last year.

For GT1/2, it's usually a mixture of Raikiri's and NSXs

I have a feeling the new Toyota Supra GT500 is going to be the go to body.. reminds me of the BRZ R&D.

ProSpec last TCS ot was even all around.. we were two Porsches and Ford GT battling it out.

I ordered the Senna as well. There’s finally a 992 Porsche 911 GT3 body coming 👍 Should be introduced at Nuremberg Toy Fair in a couple of weeks!

With the reedy ft motors what gearing range do there motors like?

gt1 will be 17.5
gt2 is 21.5

if it’s like a vta car I need to make sure I have super small spurs
out practice track is way way to small to tell me what a full sized track would be for gearing

Obviously it's track dependent, but for 21.5 GT2 I usually fall in the 3-3.50 range depending on layout/track size. Not sure on GT1/17.5

I’ve only ran the 21.5 in slow spec classes. The 17.5 I had at 3.77 last time I ran at 702.

For gearing on carpet at 180 Raceway the 17.5 Reedy motor likes the 4.0-4.1 range
