thats what alot of people were saying about Tebo. But the rumored 200k per year he is requesting as pay isnt going over so well. I heard that is why AE didnt just pick him up

A product's (pro driver) worth is only as much as the customer (RC car manufacturer) will pay. His price will come down or he will become the most accomplished privateer in America.

I heard tebo bought a $600 K house in missouri. For those of you on the east and west coast, that's alot of money. especially when the average house there costs about $130 k.


anyway, back to marty korn leaving GS, anyone here the real reason he left GS?

only reason to buy GS was korn. talked to him several times for SUT stuff. i wondered if he was still there since i didnt see much on the site when i checked it 2days ago just on a whim. now all makes sense. u'll see a steady slide from GS after this. good luck MK

GS makes very well built products (but I guess which manufacturer doesn't?) and I am pleased with their XUT. Their website however, is the most hateful thing you'll ever come across.

Default xut advanced

Yes they make a XUT ADVANCED part # GSC3053 or just go to amainhobbies.com and it is on the second page under monster trucks. Yes it is a race Truggy. I ran the new CL-1 Advanced with good luck, I am actually starting to miss the car, and Marty was great at his Job always very helpful
