Hi J the chassis is not listed on their site but it is available by request for $200.That price may come down once they list it.The shock towers were $40 each by request pryer, but are now available on the site for $34.95.I hope SNR continue making items for the GTV.On the other hand im not very happy with all the lengthy back orders,I recieved what appears to be the last set of optional diff gears from Nitro house more than a month ago and they are still on back order.I know this car is new, but when is it going to ramp up.Unfortunately my weather window will soon be ending,winter just around the corner.Chris.

Ya, I've talked to Steve about a couple things. Ya the back orders at this point are a joke, It takes time to acid etch the ofna name on all those team c parts then re-pack and up the price by 15-25% bro lol. I can't believe you have been going as fast as you have without the diffs. What I'm doing now is buying Team C GT8L parts because they are alot cheaper and the same parts but they are hard to locate. Someone was saying the Gtp2e diffs would go in the car but I don't know if anyone can verify that.

I took the car out for a test hit today with the 2200kv and 29/34 gearing and forgot when I wired up the heyok 3rd channel harness for lighting that I used the esc bec for the Savox steering servo and it was browning out right away so I didn't get to run it. I'm going to order the bigger castle bec here in a min. It's weird it worked fine with the 2650kv. I'm going to order a Xl2 very soon because with this gearing I know I'm near the limit's of the mamba monster.

I changed the wiring and removed the heyok switch for now. I was hilarious because by mistake I plugged the steering servo into the throttle channel and plugged in the batteries and held the car by one hand raised it up a little to check the steering and turned the wheel all the way to the left and the motor wound up to about 30,000 rpm and scared the hell out of me! Lol! I'm glad I was holding the car!

Anyway there is something wrong still it's like my radio is cutting out after about 20 seconds. Receiver might be dying, need to throw in another one to see.

So sick! You guys have been busy! Those bodies look really good. I want video too! Looks like my custom vinyl mask's mysteriously got lost by fedex so my painting is still on hold. Sad face.

Sorry to hear that Bro, that’s why I only ship via the United States Post Office.
They’re less expensive, faster and deliver on Saturdays at no extra charge too. The USPS is the best way to ship period.

Ya, I couldn't agree more! I hate UPS and Fedex, I didn't have a choice for this purchase.

I am pretty sure that as you guys fine tune your cars more, one of you will take johnracerx's top speed record. I have seen some of the videos on youtube and some of the guys are inching ever closer. Just a matter of time..........
