This is the Kyosho Inferno GT2 Race Spec Ferrari 458 Italia ReadySet 1/8 Scale Nitro On-Road Kit. The Ferrari 458 Italia is considered one of the most influential designs of the modern era, and now the Ferrari 458 is part of the Kyosho Inferno GT2 legacy. The official, factory-licensed replica of the Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 race car body features the same award winning styling and design as the original, with the added benefit of more robust wheel wells, and numerous other vents and aerodynamic features to make it a better race car. The Kyosho body even includes real headlight buckets with the yellow tinted lenses, typical of those used in LeMans and ALMS race cars in their respective classes.
The Kyosho GT2 chassis is based on the World Championship winning Inferno MP-7.5 design, which features durable suspension components, adjustable four-wheel independent suspension with oil-filled shocks, a rugged and low-maintenance shaft drive system with an adjustable automatic two-speed transmission, front and rear gear differentials for superior traction, and solid steel driveshafts with front universals. Getting power to the ground are large diameter wheels fitted with low-profile rubber tires that are factory-mounted. The car features a .25 c.i. nitro engine (4.1cc) with a high-performance rear exhaust port coupled to a polished aluminum tuned pipe, combined with five performance-enhancing transfer ports for outstanding power. An automatic centrifugal clutch with replaceable springs and shoes gets the power to the drive system.
All these features combined produces one of the fastest, toughest, biggest and best looking RC cars on the market. Speeds of 60+mph are common right out of the box. No expensive add on's are required to reach the speed claims either. The Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 puts the Inferno GT2 even farther ahead of the competition.
