Default rc10GT a good idea?

Well Heres the deal... I have a chance to buy a mint rc10gt with some mugen .12 in it... Very good condition and super clean... 200 rtr with a starter box... engine still in great shape.... still a good pinch runs smooth....

Is it a good idea?

I hear that rc10gt2 parts will work on it... is this true?

Thanks in advance...

Its a good idea because the GT can still win and its VERY strong. GT2 parts will not work on it though, maybe a few but nothing to help the truck.

If you're bashing then that's a great deal, and the truck is tougher than any out there for this purpose.
If you're racing I'd just spend some extra and buy a gt2. The gt2 is pure and simple easier to drive fast than the old gt.

If you're looking for speed an os .18 with a short shaft would probably be your best bang for the buck. OS has awesome engines that are reliable and easy to tune. And you can pick up a new .18 for a good price.
Mugen engines are very fast though so you might not even need any more power or speed.

GT2 parts will not work as stated above. About the only thing the same is the diff gear and ball cups.
