Marty is currently not racing but says he want to get back in it but not without being on a team.
Gs is dead in the states with no office or distributer

too bad theres no one can ever support gs in the U.S.

This buggy looks like a losi 8 crossed with the xray 808

We ran the GS Storm for a year or so, but had to sell it. Great buggy but had no parts support. A-Main is still clearing out the last of their GS parts.

I would race one if you guys started selling them. Just run the Mugen shocks and some Fioroni parts and the car is as good as any thing. This car held the fast qualifier spot at silver state for along time with Kyosho shocks. click on HQ for a better picture. This track was so blown out you could hardly get around it lol. but the CLX looked great. I ran the Advanced for a while with good results.
