i love this buggy i have two a pro team edition (just finished building) and a normal one both kits. running a stock r21pbx with an ofna pipe and it flies. very tough to. to be honest if you have the pro team kit get a fioroni or a thicker rear shock tower also for the front a fioroni although the front one is perfect. an other thing i would get is tony's screw kit. it's the best put them through hell and it doesn't strip. very good investment.

This car has the worst instructions I've ever seen, not to mention the packaging sucks. You might as well dump the entire box on a table and pick want you want. Take bag A, but oh wait a minute , the other 2 screws you need are in bag G.
I raced my GS Storm RTR last season and not problem with the car. Maybe some tunning problems with my motor but I guess, I'll do better this year. The GS motors seem a bit hard to tune?!?!
I ran the GS 1PB .21 race motor last year some and it liked a very rich bottom. The bottom seemed almost too rich when you first started it. We ran the motor almost a full tank to get a good temp reading (220 to 230 deg) and then tuned the bottoom to good smoke and no lean bogging.
I have the 21pbx can you still get this motor I got mine 2years ago
I upgraded my turnbuckles and hingpins to TI from Lundsford (a special order)
Also running a Lighting pro2 gas tank seals better and fits better( made 1 hole)
CL1 lots of mods didn't need cradock breaks fironi towers all 7075 screws, HB radio box liked it more.
make sure you spend time to shim the diffs and they will last very long.
