no, they don't. they don't make a part unless they can make it 100% unbreakable, and my guess is the shape of the T4 arms didn't lend themselves very well to unbreakability like the T2/GT arms did.

Hey guys I have read this thread and now I want a GT2! I am thinking of the RTR version; do you guys think this is a good buy? This will be my first nitro, but I have been in electric for a while. Thanks for any info.

Possibly, the engine is not the best running egine in the world though.You can get a sweet Tebo body though

OK, I am pretty new to nitro engines so it shouldn't be to bad, right? Thanks for the info. And what are the major differences between the kit and rtr versions; besides that you have to build the kit and it doesn't come with a engine, radio, etc?

all super high quality build componants, like the brace is alloy, the screws are all awesome, the tie rods and shock shafts are unobtanium etc etc. all better. same geometry, but all better.

Nah, I don't think they'll fit. Front arms are T4 and rears are all-new.

GT2 arms and T4 arms are made of different materials, The GT2 arms are made to flex more. That is why the GT2 handles better with T4 arms but it makes it more fragile.

Flex equals strength and inconsistentness*. (you know what I mean)

i got an FT GT2 for christmas, and an OS .12 TZ in the mail right now. i got the truck all built, but i kept having trouble with those flat head 4-40 screws not fitting any of my standard or metric hex drivers, so i ordered the hexcrews conversion along with the OS. maybe i just got a bad set of screws?

just got this truck and i will be posting full details and comment on my finding in the thread below. this will be a review for the average joe that wants to know what to expect. i'm not a racer nor to a care to be but i do love driving these trucks and thought i would share my thoughts. I will also include LOTS of pics and video. since this is a rc120gt2 thread i thought the people here would like to read it.
