Default No 2wd nitro CORR

Ok I love the 2wd CORR trucks but I am a nitro guy. Anybody had any luck or even tried to make one out of a GT2? I have searched nobody makes one.

i guess u could use the bumpers off the sc10 and the suspension arms off of it but im not sure if the suspension blocks are the same as the gt2 cause it is based off a t4 inless it uses the same parts

Corr trucks are defined by their scale-like wheels and tires. You wouldn't be able to get any power down on those tires with nitro. So far the only nitro corr truck that appears to run well is the AE SC8, I've seen a Traxxas Slayer run, it wasn't so good.

... and that's a 4wd truck, imagine 2wd, even less traction.

there is no demand for 2wd, because people can't drive 2wd.

1/8 buggy is so big because it is easy to drive. all the 1/8 heros come to our track in the winter time and 1 out of 10 can drive a 2wd buggy or truck.

look at 1/10 gas truck, there isn't even a roar class for them any more.

if you can wheel a 2wd gas truck, you can drive anything.

The people that don't want to drive a gas truck are pusses, boo hoo if they think they are too touchy. Gas Truck is(was) the shiznit, too bad everyone seems to have pussed out.
