See post number 251 for my opinion.

My bad, lol k One shop i found carry's the gt2..maybe cuz it's so new that they arn't carryin em? and the other shops do carry associated, just not the gt2 (yet)..also, i've always had decent to bad experiences with rc's...they often broke or ended up costing me alot...electric And nitro, although they were used. i hope this truck can take a beating Last thing, i saw a vid on youtube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-rEVa1-bQ4 ) , the clutch sounded like it was slipping alot correct? either that or the tires were just spinning i wasnt sure.

When i first raced my GT2 it slipped alot.

The diff then the slipper. Tightened the diff a fair bit and u really gotta tighten the slipper or if it spins to much you will melt your spur gear teeth like i did.

Hey MikeyG, here are the pictures I was talking about.
I messed the first EDM body up. It was hard getting it to fit on the RC10GT2.

Thanks Man! I wish they had better instructions included with the bodies. I think I am on the right track.

So my LHS just got in a carbon fiber chassis and radio tray. They also got front and reat carbon shock towers. They look really cool. available in the gray woven carbon and black woven carbon. 3mm thick too.

AZRC-Thanks for the site. Not sure the deuce needs all the hop ups.
TZs a great mill in my MTX3, I have a CVR in my GT2 and love it. I think think the TZ would be a bit much for GT, I might change my mind once I get outside on some big tracks. I always ran MT12s in the summer, but my engine supply is dwindling...

The cvr is a great little motor, had the TR. that was way too much. Alot depends on the track, the tracks I race on get blown out do too the other classes and you have to drive around all the holes. I also never really got blown off the straightaway. I have thought about getting another cvr and sending it out to get worked over for the bigger tracks. Has anybody had a cvr worked over???????

I never felt the need to mod the CVR. I figured my MT12s w/ OS carbs would feel like a modded CVR... ?
The CVR has been discontinued by OS. If your gonna get one,do it soon! And if you get it modded, please let us know how it works for you.

I just found out today that they did that, I looked and there new motors tg is like a ready-to-run motor, claims .7 hsp or the tz which makes 1.5 and uses turbo plugs$$$$$$. I dont know about you guys but the cvr is a great little motor that made 1.0 that made the truck very easy to drive on blown out tracks. I was going to contact RB mods to have them do the work.
