I usually check out the JAG Hobbies site once a week or so but had not been aware of the offering of the GT builds until learning of them from Jeff via JAG sponsoring his race this past weekend. Thursday I went to the site, read about them a bit and ordered 1 of each. I received them yesterday. I oiled them up as per included instructions and proceeded to run 'em down the track. I put a modern funny car body on the DR1-GT and a resin Anglia Panel on the TR3-GT, both unfinished . Needless to say I was very impressed! Out of the box, the DR1-GT pulled a .680, .657, .667 & .675 vs. a stock DR1 w/lowered magnets and a Legends Jungle Jim body doing .691, .697, .692 & .693. Not a huge difference but the stock DR1 had been tuned and run in a lot. The TR3-GT ran .575, .564, .563 & .571. I ran it along side the DR1-GT but did not write down the times on the DR1-GT, as they were very similar to before. The best I've ever gotten out of a stock TR3 in the past was in the high 8's. I think there might be a lot of potential with these GT offerings
Anyways, I was pretty impressed, especially the TR3-GT. You can't put the parts in a stock one for what they are selling the GT's for. You might wanna check 'em out and of coarse, YMMV.
And Jeff, I let Jim know I ordered them because of his sponsorship of your race and thanked him for that!
I've been eyeballing the tr3 for about a month or so.I am planning on using the Afx g-plus platform for a cpl. cars at the next race, but with all the inline classes running it looks like a good time to pull the trigger on another Jag order
I now remember reading your review, Dave . The first part of September was a bit frantic for me and a lotta things never got on the hard drive . I apologize! I didn't mean to take away from your review of the DR1-GT. If I had remembered, I would have posted in your thread .
