Will there be a new GT2 body similar to the new T4 body?

The wheels are JConcept Rulux wheels. Those in the picture are the proto types. The rumor is that they will be finalized and availiable soon. Yeah, not much of an answer, but that is all I have. Maybe Andy has something.

They are in the works, and will be produced. As for a date...its up in the air, we're juggling like 15 projects at the moment.

You guys should seriously consider making a 1/10th scale truggy. I guarantee it will take off like wildfire, just like the BJ4 did....look at all the wheelers that are out nowadays.

Just got a set of "Goose Bumps" to use on my T4 and GT1.5.

Raced at DC Offroad RC Park in Avon Park (4/19) last night.

http://www.dcoffroadrcpark.org/ort1.htm

TQ'd with my GT1.5 finished 2nd.

TQ'd with my T4 finished 1st.

These are the oddest tires I've ever used!!!!

The track has sprinklers but not enough to water the complete track so there are dry, loose red clay sections mostly in some corners.

Didn't matter what part of the track I was on the "Goose Bumps" just griped GREAT! Dry, wet, loose, hard pack they just GRIPED!!!!

Had Hole Shots on the front of the GT1.5 and Edges in the T4, with Step Pins, Lug Nuts, Bow Ties or Hole Shots on the back of either truck at times I had a push in the middle of a turn at DC. I ran first qual's with Bow ties on the rear of both trucks and had the push. Put the "Goose Bumps" for the 2nd qual's and main, NO push both trucks just turned! SWEET!!!!

I have a Novak 4.5 in my T4!!! LOTS of power!!!!

Andy tell us how you guys designed a tire like that!!!

Put some JC molded inserts in my 1/8th scale holeshots and ran them yesterday. Afte only 3 runs, 2 of the inserts tore and bunched up. They were even double-sided sticky taped to the wheels. Have to say I'm dissapointed in the 1/8th scale inserts. Have to go back to the PL inserts I guess.

How much were you reving the motor up on a stand? I've heard using sticky tape doesn't help much. I thought the same thing, until i settled down with my throttle control. I have had no problems yet. Sorry to hear they broke.

sincerely,

So I went to a race this weekend that was a one tire track. It was step pins, that is until I tried the Goosebumps. I was running Proline lug nuts and then mounted up a set of the GB's for my gas truck and it was like some one flipped a switch. My truck was sooo much more locked in than any others that didn't have them. I ran them for 2 of the 3 quals and then a 15 minute b main, got the bump and then took second in the 30 minute in the a main and the tips of the pins were only half way worn. I would expect to see a spike in sales of those tires here in the northwest.

Always nice to hear good results with the tires. Any pics of the tires by chance?

Any chance one of those projects is a Revo body with side exhaust?
