its a good truck i had one and loved it. You will find that the .18cvr is a lot for it. You will have a hard time keeping the nose down. I say if thats what your looking for than get it.

Dude, I was talking to Marcus F. and he is wanting to get 1/10th truck back also.. I know a good group of us in Tucson will FOR SURE get back into 1/10th trucks if we have enough people.. we should get this show on the road, I had a blast racing 1/10th back in highschool!!

well a couple of things
1. buying gas trucks used is always a risk; fuel usage, break in, and abuse
2. that is nitro lol not gas but similar
3.i recommend buying a new nitro truck

I just picked up a GT2 this season. First time running gas truck in 12 years, and I'm having a blast. Losi Racer, don't give up. Post some questions, check the forum XXX-NT AD2 Thread and take your time to figure it out. You'll be glad you did.

Bring back gas truck!!!!!! (yes traxxastar, I know it's nitro, lol )
