Dang, I'm really enjoying all the new advertising lol wtf? Now every thing I've looked at in the last week I get to see all over again on the side of the page, the top and bottom slowing down the page load and using more bandwith on my phone. How handy! My favorite is when I buy something and then I get to look at all the adds for it for another week lol. Just a little rant. I'm on the hunt for another forum soon.

Took her for a quick spin and systems check this evening. Holy shiz the stock the tires are ridiculous! Would be hella fun with a Dbox though. 21t pinion and tire spin at every hit of the throttle. Could use some serrated lock nuts too. Gonna be a fun car. Super fast.

I tried a dbox on my gtp2e and hated it for regular driving, when your going 50+mph the sudden turns from slightly rough roads get sketchy real quick! I enjoyed the dbox on my sprint2 drift car I had. I would only drift it on ultra smooth surfaces at low speeds. I like total wheel control, ultimately it's better. Those stock tires are a joke lol so loose! I had some serrated nuts on my grp2e but they don't fit my gtv2e. Let me know if you find some serrated that fit.

Hi All I noticed that steering turnbuckle link to steering block in gtv2e gets in 90 degree/perpendicular when steering fully to one side or another. That makes a huge play, when cornering, on the inside tire. Every hard turn I make my car shakes and looses grip because the inner front tire during cornering becomes very sloppy.

I've seen a few solutions to tighten the steer here, jato turnbuckles, Ackerman bar from rcshox, but none seems to fix this specific issue. They might take the slop away on a straight. But when cornering appears to me that the gtv2e has a design flaw.

I love the car, that's the only issue I had so far.

I hate to do this, but I'm in the market for a new on-road brushless. Looking at this or the Sprint 2 Flux. What do you think would be a better buy? Can't seem to find a whole lot of info on this, that's why I'm asking here. Any help is appreciated.
