Since Kyosho Inferno GT2-VE with AMG GTR GT3 body is no longer available and I decided to get the Inferno GT3 competition kit while it's still available and convert it to brushless motor. I like to stick with Kyosho Inferno due to longer 360mm wheelbase for more scale body appearance while every other manufactures move to the shorter 325mm chassis for their 1/8 GT cars. 2nd reason is I had the Inferno MP5 buggy before, and it's one of the best and most reliable RC vehicles I have ever owned.
All the conversion was done by bolt on Kyosho parts. Kyosho brushless conversion kit (IFW451) is the main one. Several new holes needed to be drilled on the GT3 chassis as this conversion kit was for the older GT1 and GT2 chassis and not made for the newer GT3 chassis.
Body is rare 1/8 Kyosho Ferrari 458GT Italia that I had stashed away years ago before getting this GT3 kit. Seen next to my '06 1/7 MJX RC Ferrari F430
ESC:Castle Mamba X 8s.
Motor: Castle 1520.
Steering servo. Reefs 400sc V.2 yeah it's crawler servo but it's super fast and very strong and decent price.
All the optional Kyosho aluminum parts, lucky there aren't many. Most important one being the IGW061 front hub carrier with 4 degrees caster as stock ones are way to high.
I also added mesh dust cover (made for some Arrma truck) to keep dust out so less cleaning.
Next is to get the Kyosho 1/8 AMG GTR GT3 body before it's discontinued. I also got Protoform C7-R Corvette body as runner body.

Not sure if you got my comment? Well anyway very cool and the dusty motors cover is cool!



Thanks James! and it's quite big too. In the picture it looks small. I'll add a picture of the Corvette runner body next week.
