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. Iíve 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.
