Good little truck there mate. Basically a buggy with extended hubs for a wider wheel track. GS had good success with this vehicle in the early days as it was one of the first of its type on the market. Your local GS supplier should still have some parts you may need. Go out, thrash it and have a ball.

Hey, I have a GS Thread a few lines down. The buggies I've got from GS are rock solid. Your truck should be even tougher. A Main is an online hobby store that sells GS if your local hobby shop can't get parts. I may, in fact, be getting some truck parts as part of a package deal on a buggy I'm buying. Those GS parts I get that arn't for the GS CL-1 buggy, should be made for your truck. I'll check and let you know. GS isn't as popular as some manufacturers in here in the US but they make awesome stuff. Brett, Up-Side-Down Racing Team

I think a lot of their parts are interchangable. Usually they lenghten the wheelbase a little and do a little change here and there. Most of the time the new bolts up to the old. And check ebay. You can find and entire truck for 60 or 70 bucks sometimes. A GS Storm Pro with JR radio and OS engine sold for $150 a week or so ago. That's the nice thing about our old GS products, low resale. That's assuming you keep it. Keep an eye on ebay, you'll find trucks like yours rtr for 150 and under. Don't give more than that for one though. Don't give that unless it has a good radio, engine and is in great shape. It's only worth 125 or so if in used average shape but with equipment and ready to run. This is information I've gathered from watching ebay so it is accurate. Here and there one goes for more or less than it should but these figures are about the norm. By the way, I think your truck shares parts with the old Storm buggy, and there is a new Storm Evo RTR who's parts are all compatible with the old one except for the chassis and hinge pin mounts. Just realized you said CE edition. The prices I mentioned might go $50 or so higher in that case but no more than that.

and i need some big bore shocks....but found a nice set on ebay for 30$
