What's everyone's thoughts of the GT2 VE? Any issues I should be wary of?

I'm leaning towards the GT2VE at this stage...
Depends if your just bashing or actually wanna take in a track for 1/8 cars and run it . But I probably would get the GT2Ve but not the RtR version . The roller race ready version which comes with better suspension and cvd driveshafts .

Hell, I could drop 2 grand into it, but, I won't
On order.

Yea they should be alright but it was just a thought since your ordering more metal bits . Hopefully the stock system last but if not U can get a new one n eBay for 120$ . 180 cheaper,then new tekin lol good luck post some pics of it

Just picked up a new roller off eBay...any pointers as to the suspension or cvd upgrades?

Have a new MMM & Castle 2200kv to install into it as well as an Ace DS1015 servo.

Got both aluminum shock towers on tonight.
On the front tower, there was suppose to be threads in two holes, so, I made my
own threads with some mussel and a good Phillips screw driver.

OK, peeps, I need some help-advice.
I want a new bling chassis brace, front and back, or just rear?
What is out there?
Most of all, what will fit my car.

I got a blue rear one coming.
And a gunmetal front.
But, I am looking for the huge pivot eye that has 2 holes?

Flojo...so how do you compare the conversion with 2 speed and mechanical brakes (RC-Monster) vs full electric control ?? I have a GT2 that I have laying around that I could convert !! what car has faster lap times if you ever tracked them before ?? very curious !

Just picked up a new GT2 458 body as well...can't wait to see what you do with yours FLoJo.

I'm planning on running a Castle MMM/2200kv combo, what pinion do you guys suggest? I was thinking 15-18T on 4S but am unsure for 5S or 6S?

Has anyone gone through and replaced all the hardware on their Inferno with hex screws (instead of the silly philips head screws).

If so, did you pick up a kit or just individual screws? Also, did you use the self tapping screws where required or did you use regular screws?

Ya know, when I took my GT2 out of the box two weeks ago, the screw heads were the first things I noticed.
I was very disappointed, but, you know what, I am now OK with them.
Much faster the check for tightness, don't have to fiddle around and find a number
of different sizes of Allen wrenches to use.
I will not change them all out just so they match my Vorzas.LOL

This the theme I'm shootin for lol but who knows wht ill end up with . Love the liberty walk 458 tho
Personally loved my 2200 & 2650 castle motors . But since I got a tekin , kinda hard to go back these just make your ride so smooth from initial throttle all the way through , my gt2 feels like a drag car , none of my other gt8 cars with castle motors would pull off the line like this does with the tekin system that said you can't go wrong ith castle price I use to get a new parted system on ebay for $200 on good days lol

I'd go like 18-21t pinion
