Ya, that's a good deal! I love this car! It's a blast!

I'm waiting on some 6.5mm bullets for the xl2 motor connection 8mm is just overkill for a 2200kv. I'm installing the 6.5mm castle polarized battery connectors also. 6.5mm is good for 200amps constant at any voltage they claim. My 2x SMC 3s 6500 70c 6s setup is capable of delivering 455amps lol. Theoretically of course. Trying to decide on pulling the trigger on 2 4s batteries but I'm kinda scared as 6s is rediculouse as is. For my next run I'll probably do the standard 34/34 on 6s and see what happens.

That's a lot of gear. Curious to see how you mount it up. My new joint should arrive on my Bday next week. Guess I'll start putting my wishlist of upgrades together (SNR, RCShox, XL2, gyro, etc, etc). Love me some new RC.

I agree on Mugen but Amain doesn't seem to have anything heavier than 100k.

It's been a busy but short summer for me so here's an update on my car.

I had the RTR chassis but sold it for a Pro-Kit Chassis with the better parts. I added some upgrade parts from RCShox. Got the RF Toe block, Arm braces and Dual stage pistons. Holy $hit on a stick, what a difference! The three parts alone changed the handling of the car. I now have way less body roll and more precise and controlled steering. If anyone is contemplating these mods, do it!

I saw some pics of Marcus's car with custom rear diffuser so I DIY'd my own rear splitter with a Traxxas X01 rear diffuser and some custom turnbuckles with carbon shafts to dress it up. Definitely finishes the look since I have X01 front splitters (thanks for the idea JStall!) and front aluminum splitter. Front and rear splitters also hold down the body shell nicely with zero wobble.

Still have to install Jato links and tackle the wheel wobble/play issue.
SNR Carbon Chassis and FR&RR Carbon Towers have been ordered! Can't wait!

Does anyone know if there is an upgrade aluminum screw kit for the GT-V2e? Someone should come out with one (hint hint Marcus )

Pics:

Looks like RCShox has the hookup.
