Ok today me and my buddy ran our gt and gt2 in a parking lot for about 5 hours and had so much fun... Now a few questions. I have a LOT of play at all wheel hubs, can this be fixed? And I would like to replace all dog bones at least at the four corners, what are my options? And my brakes go soft, options ? My car at this point is fully stock except radio and servos. Thanks.

Is there a upgrade for the suspension that has captured hinge pins. Or is there options that at lease get rid of the e-clip hinge pins ?

You need to toss the dual brake setup and get the SP BRAKE UPGRADE rotor and disc. Also get the Dragon racing aluminium tranny mounts. Best $16 I ever spent off ebay... After this you will be stopping before you push the brakes !! Lol... Here is a pic in my gt2 race spec installed ...

You can find the tranny mount on their eBay store called Dragon Racing out of Hong Kong. Ships in 10 days tops .. I also use their motor mount with cooling fins to kill heat and toe block kit that comes in 3 diff deg settings. 2.5 toe is ideal ! On my gt1 I use their mp777 chassis ... I had to drill out 2 holes for the 2 speed tranny that's it. Also if you do that then you will need the mp777 radio tray. Better design ! Here is a pic... Notice the chassis braces !

I've thinking of doing that too.
And i've been looking at the MP9 capture hinge pins.
I think they would fit.
