Default T2-GT

I know the T2 and the GT share many suspension components, but I want to make sure which ones they don't share. At Team Platinum Racing, we want to make some aluminum hop ups for the T2 and GT, and we were hoping anyone here could tell us what fits, and what doesn't I bought a used T2 roller from my LHS, and put in an Explorer, and Futaba AM radio system with a Futaba S3003 servo, and a P2K2 PRO motor, I assembled it with spare electronics, just to see it go. We want to tear it down, and map it out for modifications.

My questions were,

What exactly are universal, other than the shock towers, a-arms, steering blocks, and knuckles? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My last question is; is there even still a market for GT hop ups, and what would your reccomendations be as far as modified parts. If you could change something about the trucks, or their current mods, what would it be?

Thanks guys!

Hehe, some quick change rear hubs like tebo had made would be nice. Some guys like to use losi switch mounts that go around the throttle servo, so a custom job might be wanted so they don't need losi parts. I've heard brass brake discs work the best, but can never find any. I've always thought it would be neat to try and come up with a way for the gt to use vertical camber link mounts. Guys seem to like the aluminum rear tranny brace, and some the six hole design. You can find those on ebay, but they might be nice to have if you guys are selling stuff. Most that stuff would just be bling. But people might like to have it just to make their trucks different.

I will add some of that stuff to the list. So do you know if the parts are interchangable?

I myself have a good deal of experience with the gt. Any front suspension component off a t2 will fit on a gt and vice versa. Most of the rear will too, arms, hubs, tower, I think even the gearbox. I would look into making aluminum rear arm mounts, like the rpm mounts that use 3 screws instead of the stock 2. Those always come loose even with a nut on the end. The brakes need some big help. Instead of using the hex, make a "quad lobe" thing, look at the losi ad2 and you'll know what I'm talking about. It will make the discs last much longer.

i would kiss you if you built a chassis plate for an RC10T4 that you could drop the GT's transmission and engine mounts/tank/etc into.
