At the end of July Kyosho will begin the distributions of the new Inferno GT3 4WD Touring Car 1/10th. With realistic roll and movement as well as being easier to drive than 1/10 touring cars or 1/8 racing cars, the 1/8 GT category has developed a popular following around the world. As an established GP on-road racing category, specifications adhere to the regulations set by IFMAR (International Federation of Model Auto Racing). This Inferno GT3 chassis kit is the ideal model to compete in the 1/8 GT racing category.
Based on Kyosho’s flagship model, the Inferno MP9 TKI4 1/8 GP buggy, the GT3 represents a full model change from the previous Inferno GT2 version.
Advanced specifications deliver increased racing performance through: improved surface tracing realized from newly designed short Big Bore Shocks and machine cut Duralumin shock stay; improved throttle response with a lighter diff; improved maneuverability from ideal weight distribution; secure high-grip road feel through optimal chassis rigidity; strong braking performance effectively bringing the weight of the moving chassis to a stop, and the essential durability and reliability needed by competition racers over long periods. The GT3 is fully equipped to compete and win under the most intense racing pressure and is the fastest road to racing glory.

1. Developed with long wheelbase for superior running stability. Modifications to each section realize turning performance equal to short wheelbase cars.
2. Equipped with newly designed short oil shocks and shock springs based on buggy shocks. Larger capacity compared to the GT2 delivers vastly improved surface tracing.
3. Machine cut high-rigidity Duralumin shock stay combines perfectly with the newly designed oil shocks to realize reliable shock function.
4. Front and rear suspension arms from the MP9 TKI4 deliver both improved surface tracing and turning performance. Wider setting scope enables optimization for various driving situations.
5. New position of body mount post increases rigidity of body attachment. GT2 bodies can also be mounted using available body mounting holes.
6. Radio box adopts same separate structure as the MP9 TKI4. Separation of receiver and battery optimizes weight distribution and minimizes the risk of trouble.
7. Large capacity 150cc fuel tank supports long run times. Resin guard prevents fuel splashing over the brakes when refueling.
