Default Is GPM Racing Products Good?

Hi, just wanna find out from you guys whether the products from GPM good? Especially the hop-up parts for v1r?

Is the things at Chin Ngai Hobby & Co cheap?

If not, which shop would you recommend? I'm looking at the hop-up parts for v1r.

Thanks,

I was wondering why some guys just want to hate GPM and Chin Ngai shop. now i know why, a friend of mine who does business in HK told me the lowdown recently and all i can say is "now i understand those fellows who hate GPM". i'll just leave it at that... no offense to anyone concerned...

gpm products are of very high standard in for its market

if you compare gpm to other brands its hard to find a better aftermarket who makes aluminiums better than gpm

GPM may be good quality wise... but sometimes they slip up. i bought a mini-z motor mount but strangely the mount does not have the threads in them to put the screws in. it was a waste. i bought a team homies mount for my car and the GPM mount is on my table. a reminder to me to be wary of GPM in the future... Having said that, i'm using GPM narrow front and wide rear rims on my mini-z...

Only problem is that GPM alloy is equivalent to "Tofu"......have you ever tried biting it? leaves teeth marks there!!

So if you have a mini-z with all GPM mods, get the Kyosho Initial D "Hachiroku" for your body... since the hachiroku has the "Tofu Delivery" markings on the door...hehehehe

Aiyayayay, I found that GPM parts are very expensive and are very soft.

The employees working there were all sticking decals onto their cars. Hehe, and they had no GPM parts on their cars.
