These are the clip on limiters I keep mentioning just so you know there out there. I don't remember where I got them or what they are for but they work good.

They clip on right above the lower spring perch to limit maximum travel. They come right off with needle nose pliers. Like a plastic bump stop. These are actually to big for this car, they are off a moster truck. I know rpm makes some I used on my FT Sc10 4x4. I have my travel on that truck limited so the chassis just barley slaps the track after a big tripple. Like this, im the one driving my white truck like a maniac lol.

Those are hinge pin spacers for monster trucks they go in front or behind the suspension arms to shorten/ lengthen the wheelbase

Ya, from my Savage XLE! They work perfectly for limiters. Rpm sells some that are just like them for shocks. The savage parts don't fit though these were just handy for a pic.

Does anyone know if nitrohouse is still working or placing orders? Ive ordered something to my gtv2 2 weeks ago and they only sent me a order confirmation. I wrote them 3 days ago asking if they send already my order and still waiting some response


Another question.
Between a DM1 E and a GT v2E, which one will be more easy to do 100mph+ speed runs? I own both and have the mamba monster esc and the 2200kv engine.

Your item must have been back ordered. That happen to me on the rear center cva, it set me back about 3/4 weeks even though it said in stock. Hang in there!

The DM1 is a awesome car no doubt about it but I feel the GT-v2e is on it way to becoming the best all around performer. Mantis is doing serious work on the Gt-v2 for track racing and Steve at SNR graphite is making carbon part to make the car ultra light. I personally like the longer wheelbase for stability and battery positioning options. The factory tires make the GT-v2e seem like a joke until you swap them out, why they put those on the car is beyond me, they make it so loose. You really can't go wrong either way....both will hit 100mph. I'm not sure but I think your dm1 has taller gears in the diffs, I bought taller diff gears for my gt-v2e.
Check out my Road to 100mph videos if you haven't yet.

Ya, I just bought a Samsung 512GB evo ssd today and 3TB network drive and a caviar black 1TB hard drive along with Pinnacle Studio 16 ultimate to make my video editing better and have a place to store them. Recently I hand built a new pc with a intel i7 and 16gigs of of the fastest ram around and a 660ti 1gig video card and a bluray burner. Loving it! The lights flicker when I hit the power button lol! Brought my computer into 2013. My last build lasted me 10 years. If you go all out they last a long time.
