Sometimes old school is the way to go.

We are currently testing the XUT II and developing the US Spec Version.
It will look very different from what you have seen on the German sites.

Since the US Clay tracks are often not the smoothest we will be be looking at an option to chance shock position from radical laid flat to radical upright.

All with all we had the the XUT II out on 2 races in the past weeks and it won the first and got in some carnage on the second race and broke a knuckle. It handles real well and is very competitive against the MBX6T the Losi eight 2.0T and the Associated 8T.

How is the truck handling w/ the shocks laid down compared to other trucks??
Is there an actual disadvantage?

Does the have truck a c-hub or pillow ball suspension?

The Truck actually handles awesome with the laid down shocks. I expected it to be crap but it isn't. It seems to handle as well as a MBX6T if not better.

The suspension is a pillow ball version.

The XUT II US version will be available in the USA before Christmas!!!

We are already working on the designs for the 2012 Buggy and Truggy and we certainly will ask all the Team drivers for their input and testing of the new stuff to come!!!

I have 2 XUT II for sale. 250 used one run still like new. 300 NIB

Shocks can be vertical just be removing the bottom plastic part that is in the traditional shock hole and use a standard spot on the tower!

Hi guys.
Been running the MBX6T for a while but ive just got an A team drive in the UK with GS.
Im a little confused with the wheel size. Looking at the included rims they look zero offset but ive been reading a German forum and they mention the truck needs 1/2 offset rims or extenders are available. This info was posted in mid 2010 and wether the truck has changed in spec now, im not sure. The truck im getting is the latest US spec.
Regards Graham.

Default Buggy Conversion

I have an old GS Storm Pro, pre CL-1. I'm looking to convert it to a truggy for my nephew. If any of you have old truggies or parts that have been cast aside collecting dust please shoot me a pm. Not picky on condition of such parts as tires since he'll have fun with them regardless.

I've been away from the hobby for a while so I've lost touch with what GS is doing. Is there currently a GS USA? What is their latest buggy and truggy? Thank you, Brett

Very disappointing. I was happy with the car but with my year of travel I was not able to be driving the car nearly as much as I wanted to. I guess back to Mugen I go. However the CLX was very nimble and I was very excited for the XUT2 but now its over a year past when it was supposed to arive.
