it is light, very fast and it handles great with the new suspencion parts... the big bore shocks made a huge difference thru the rough conditions of the track.... it jumps well balanced as well.

my .02 cents

Had a chance to test it on our tracks and it made me a better driver. I have an Xray XB8 before this buggy and I see the difference immediately. XB8 is also a good buggy but are better suited in the hands of expert who can tune its setting well not for newbie like me.

CL1 was more stable and jumps very well. I had a problem in turning cause the servo that i used was an ace rc 1015 to much for a buggy. I was fishtailing always.

It's very well built, very sturdy construction too. Of all the non-mainstream brands, I think GS offers the best built quality. I have the XUT, I've put 4 gallons though it and only replaced the wing, shock boots and missing screws. At $3++ I think it's a bargain (CL-1AD)

I have both truggy and buggy. Both have advanced hop ups. The buggy is new but the truggy has already significant track time. So far I am happy with my purchase.

Hi guys - I have the CL-1 Advanced and find it very good value for money.
Strong buggy, and the new Advanced model steering geometry makes this car handle as good as anything out there. Quality of diffs etc is very high, and the new big bore shocks are sweet. I have raced GS truggy and now buggy for 2 years and never had a diff or driveline problem yet.
There is another thread on here from Malaysia, where the CL-1 is raced extensivly with great success. Some good tips and set ups on this thread, so worth a look.

oggietiu - That Ace 1015 should be perfect for the CL-1. That is pretty much the standard servo used by most buggy guys in my neck of the woods (had one on my Cl-1 since new). If your getting the rear end breaking loose it is more likely a set up thing. Too much front sway bar, not enough rear toe in, too much toe out on the front wheels or something along those lines. Cheers
