You mean the ThunderTiger Phoenix GT? ThunderTiger owns Team Associated. They make the truck (and others) under both names.

Man if I CAN'T get parts for a genuine Giga Crusher, what chance does someone stand for the knockoff? Zero. None. Zilch.

I am going to do some research on that. If I can find those motor mounts and they are a fit, I will be very happy!

nitrorcracer

Like rob said the phoenix is not a copy of the rc10gt. Thunder tiger ownes team associated. Just like the Monster gt is a Thunder tiger EB4. Thunder Tiger has been building trucks for Team Associated for years and just this past year bought Team Associated. Just to make it clear. No copy there.

Uh, not tryin to be rude, but the MGT is based off the MTA4. The EK4 is a totally different truck.

I know, dumb thing to correct, but I just don't want nitrorcracer to be even more confused.[8D]
