Bought the kit and emailed Gmade and JunFac for the upgraded transmission parts and got them within two weeks of the email. I know others have had bad luck on this,and I may have been lucky, but nevertheless email you will definitely get the parts sooner or later.
The truck is just great. Really well thought out (other than the trans issue that should have been taken care of before release), taking into account the best parts of other rigs in the market and bringing them together in a unique truck that is very capable right off the box. I also bought most of the upgrade parts and they definitely increase this rigs capabilities. I’ve put it agains very customized and upgraded C2 trucks and the Bom has been able to easily crawl over obstacles that others just struggle to make it (if at all). The front biased weight distribution gives this rig the ability to climb ove very steep angles and the front end design gives the rig plenty of approach angle to get a good grip on those front tires without getting the front bumper hooked up on rocks.
The transmission design gets your CG down low on the chassis and the TTR design really helps on attenuating torque twist, but I find the rear cantilever suspension design to be a bit too soft. I went with a slanted shock setup attached to a custom mount on the chassis rails that eliminated all signs of torque twist. Rear plastic shock towers are provided with the kit, so you may want to give that a try as well.
All in all, one of the most capable rigs in the market that will get you comping right out of the box (obviously providing your own electronics) and doing very well at it. Give it four stars due to the transmission issue and how it has been handled. Other than that, the rig is just fantastic.
RCMart are still shipping old stock of this truck, with the faulty transmission housing - Replacements have to be sought from GMade, and I've been waiting over 5 weeks for a response to any mails, let alone a replacement - Before ordering, get someone to confirm the upgraded kit is available!
Google BOM transmission for details of the fault - I contacted RCMart for replacements and they said they couldn't help!
Good truck. The quality of parts is good. Unfortunately I didn't get the optional TS03 Upper Ball (4 pcs) & 5.8mm Silver Ball (25 pcs), which went in the first games, did not have time, a little upset. I will slowly build for the new season. In Russia the parcel reached the whole.
Just want to thank RcMart and Gmaid for this excellent GS02 competition winner.This car competed in the 3 nation's cup South Africa competition this weekent and got a 3 plays overall built out the box now hopups no upgrades nothing against cars that had everything done and upgraded. The car competed agenst 70 other cars and outperformed all most all of them.Thank you .
