i think the new GT is going to be one hell of a contender, and if they put half the work that losi has into their new beast, it will be a formidable machine for sure!

At least it's good natured and not serious. Some people get outta hand with the ae vs. losi thing. Personally I go with "run what ya brung!!"

I'll believe about the "New GT" when I see one at the track.

what can i say, its what im good at

seriously though, this is my first season even owning a REAL rc truck. im just a sarchastic smart-ass with a niche in comedy. class clown if you will. the guys i usually run with here are usually far more concerned about having a good time than they are making headlines or winning races. its usually a very close knit, fun loving time. actually, im a big losi fan, i just love my GT too much to get a XXXNT.

but my momma taught me if i cant say anything nice not to say anything at all. so if im being a jerk, chances are im just messin with ya

good choice on the FT GT. you wont be disappointed!

mounting tires is easy, if you have a big ole rubber band if not, go to CVS or staples and get some regular sized rubber bands that are super thick. just wrap it around the tire once the glue is in and it should set up niceley in about a minute

If you don't mind running losi rims or tires, they sell pre mounted step pins.

If you use Losi rims on your Gt the wheel base well be to wide( Not legal)

The Losi rim has alot more off-set compared to the Ae rim ....

You can bash around with um ,but for racing , I don`t think so

I doubt any club tracks would care about the width. Unless ya started lapping everybody all the time. I've yet to be at a race where they teched any of the cars. But you'll probably get different handling due to the wider offset. Here's how an engineer puts it: (quote from Jodie [email protected] GT forums)
After a little thought I decided that the slidy feeling of the front end was caused by the drastic increase in the scrub radius of the tire. The scrub radius is the distance from the kingpin to the centerline of the tire. A front end with a zero scrub radius gets better traction while the tires are in the process of turning because the center of the tire doesn't scrub across the ground when the wheels are turned.
Anyhow, gluing tires isn't that difficult. I hate doing it also. But after awhile ya get pretty fast at it.
