Check out teamtrinity.com they have a bunch of parts avalible for the GT. The new style GT like you got doesnt really need anything though, so you might want to spend the cash on a good engine/starter box.

The truck needs the rpm receiver case without it you will damage your radio gear. The case is less than $10 and comes in different colors. You will also need different tires and servo/servos if you are going to race. I would use the engine that comes with it until it pukes then I would upgrade but you have to remember if you upgrade to a non-pullstart you will need a starter box and different flywheel and motor mount plate (these parts are not very expensive and well worth getting). O ya I almost forgot you should throw away the 4 aa battery holder and get yourself a nice 1000 mah receiver pack battery.

I've tried that brace but I like the plastic one better. In offroad the extra flex seems better. If I were running on a oval I would definatly use it.

I will go back on my origional post, and I would suggest the tranny brace as well, it did save me some spur gears on a truck that seems to go through them fairly easilly.

Wow thats allot of flex. Were you guys using a ftgt. I don't see how that brace has anything to do with the mesh between the spur gear and the motor because the motor and trany are not tied together anyway but with the motor mount assembly. Hmm I guess I will have to play with it some more but for me it has never been an issue.

I've been running my truck for several hours ever weekend for the last month and a half, and haven't eaten up a single spur gear...and I run the plastic brace. The front end needs new tie rods and ball cups now tho, and I'm on my 2nd set of tires...

trinity has one I think the part number is listed on their site. Asc makes a graphite one that would work just as well and its only like $7 or so.

xxxtracer the problem you describe sounds to me just like a bad situation. I still dont see how a brace between the tranny and the bulkhead would have anything to do with keeping the tranny and motor from flexing seperatly. the brace will keep the tranny and bulkhead from flexing but I don't see any problem with flexing their other that allowing the rear end to have a little more traction. The more rigid you make something the more traction is taken away.
