Default Last of GRP Sell Off

What a shame those engines are not available any more after what happened to their factory. The quality of their engines was unbelievable. Though pricey they were the true Italian stallions . We at Overdrive RC still have a few left and we offer them packaged up with some wheels and tires. Just wanted to get the word out there for the true enthusiasts, check our website at overdriverc.com for the last deals on those amazing engines.

how can you say your grp really sucks, when on one thread here you asked which type of plug your engine has, standard or turbo, seems like you should know more about your engine before cutting them down... I have 3 grps and plan on buying more before this season is up.. have'nt had any problems with any and don't forsee any problems. hope grp or someone starts thier engine program again...

Maybe he was trying to say was that He just bought a GRP, so that really sucks that they are no longer a company. Not that the engine itself sucks. I myself also bought a Tuned, and hope for something to enlighten the future.

i dont think hes bashing his grp. i think he meant that it sucks that he just bought a grp and didn't take advantage of this deal.

Yea its cool i guess its part my fault that i wasn't being clear that it sucks i just bought a grp because they looked real good at the pro series and that grp is no more but what i want to know is i thought losi owns grp now so why are they just stopping because of a factory fire instead of trying to bring them back

as far as my experiance with these engines, you got yourself a great engine.. I know there are other ones out there that are just as good, but I have'nt tried any of those, and have no reason to... as far as losi owning grp and so on, thats over my head, I have no idea on that one.. go enjoy your new engine, they are a very dependable engine...
