When I brake, my GT2 pulls to the left. Any idea on how to fix this?

Thanks.

Yeah , you need to fix the binding you have on the left side , probably a bad bearing or bent component in or on the drive shaft.Check this stuff first ,and then check you diff bearings

Thanks for the tips. I'll take a look now. Based on my lousy jumping ability, it's probably a bent drive shaft.

I broke two front shock rod ends. is this just me or have you guys broke any?
my truck was in a auto crash and it had broken one side.
if its not a normal thing to ever break then maybe it had been stressed in the crash.
anyone know where to get some aluminum ones i can buy?
thanks
jim

only thing i have broke is the rear shock tower. To much throttle on a 25 foot quad. Quadding it is easier then double double since you have to scrub more speed to double double it.

Im confused? Do you have one for sale, or are you buying one?

If you buying one used, tear the vehicle apart and inspect the diff and watch out for screws that strip. The 2) 2-56 screws that hold the front hinge pins brace strip. And on the underbelly, the 4-40x 1/2 screws that hold the radio tray in are prone to stripping. This past weekend, I had the stock clutch springs break on me for no reason. My truck would not sit still and when I hit the brakes, the engine stalled. So I tore the engine out and disassembled the clutch and sure enough, both silver springs were broke.

Other than that, super awesome truck. I love mine!!!!!!

I have noticed with the GT2 you need to be more on top of the clutch. I keep a few pair of springs on hand just in case. I also use the lighter springs because the stock ones felt like the clutch was slipping when on the throttle.
