Building a GT2 is fun and not too bad. It took longer than I expected. About 12 hours. But it was my first kit to build ever, so IDK. I'm glad I did build it though. Anything that goes on with the truck I feel like I can tell what's going on from the drivers stand. On the RTR 8ight I have it was a pain in the ass at first. But as I converted it to the kit specs it got much better. Now I think the 8ight and T are one of the easiest chassis to work on. Definately easier than the Jammin chassis.

XsX-I hope you can sell the Jato. Did you try ebay yet? That's where a lot of the bashers check for parts. A lot know they can get parts there and they see if they can find a deal. After a while they find RCTech. LOL. I don't really know. That's how it worked for me.

I love workin on my 8T. I'm converting to racer right now. Changed all the diff oils to Drake specs, shocks, fluids. Next I'm gettina box and back plate for the 427 for now. I feel the engine is a little overkill for racing but so far so good. This truck is very solid. I'm building a 8ight next. Thinkin of the race roller but I want to build it for self gradification

I had the AD2 and really enjoyed it, but I think the GT2 tranny is easier to access. Otherwise the Losi shocks rock, mainly for maintenance reasons. Either chassis you chose will be a winner.

If you want an AD2 there are plenty for sale everywhere. Cheap too.. Just make sure which ever truck you decide, that parts are available at your track or hobby shop. These guys arien't as durable as your buggie's/truggies.
