Are you looking for threaded bodies? AE is putting some out as just the threaded bodies, and the whole shocks will be out in late Feb. Otherwise some like losi shocks which are also threaded.

I have Evader shocks on my RC10, and they fit ok. Just had to space them out at the top (threaded another small nut between shock and tower). I also put them on the rear-had to do the same spacer deal. I did screw up and bought just front shocks, though. They work fine on the rear-on pavement-but are too short off road for jumping. They hold the rear control arms level at full extension. works great on road, though.

Yes, you need grease in it.

IIRC, it is Black Diff Grease from Team Associated...

You use the Black Grease on the 6 balls between the thrust washers in the right hub and The Stealth Diff Lube on the actual diff balls seated in the diff gear.

They are different properties between the two, so I use both on their respective parts.

Dude...slide carbs rule and far as throttle response and overall coolness. You actually have a larger opening at full throttle on a slide than you do a rotary!!!!

Olivar use the proline/associated dish wheels for the gt. You can use losi wheels but there is an offset which will make it narrower. tbrancheau - cool

So I got my first gas car, a RTR RC10GT2...

Broke it in on my block, before taking it out for some fun.

First run away from home I busted a rear suspension arm and a hinge pin.

Fixed that, then took it out again tonight and learned the hard way how quick these cars really are.




$24 worth of front-end plastic, but its good to know what parts are more likely to break in a head-on curb collision....
Car still was running after the accident and it started back up no problem a few minutes later...

No more full throttle for awhile...

Welcome to the addiction/hobby. You picked a good choice for a first car. If you ever need more specific advice check out the link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_4248876/tm.htm]GT2 forum.[/link] .

No, the gt is a race truck so no one makes a two speed for it. Do not buy the anaconda tires for the jato. They have zero traction and are a stupid size (not 2.2"). Look into some prolines. What kind of surface are you running on?

Hey bte214 you know the part #s that I need to change from 3/16 to 1/4 rear axles?

Got some three piece wheels I want to test out and I want to have the 1/4 setup just to have.

Thanks.
Mike.

ugh. . im think i might go into the nitro drift scene. but want to keep using my truck, but due to the 0 tracks on long island because of people complaining about noise, i cant run off-road. so this idea struck me while looking through the forums. take shocks cut them to size( to get a low on road look) and slap some pvc on some old rims..oh and get a totally sick on road body for it. hopefully post some pics by the end of march. lemme know what ya think.

I live in Bay Shore Long Island not far from you. There are 2 tracks I know of on Long one is and off road track and the other is an on road track. I am not sure if the on-road track is for drifting or not. I am sure you know of Willis Hobbies in Minneola, they have an on road track and last I checked it was used for carpet racing, but that was as least 3 years ago when I was last at their track.

Willis Hobbies has been around since before I got into the hobby some 25 years ago. I used to go to them all the time when I lived in Queens but I really don't like that shop anymore, they are very overpriced and full of BS.

The Track in Farmingdale is located on Conklin Street a 1/4 mile west of RT110 not far from the Farmingdale UA Theater.

http://www.raceway.com/

There is another shop in Deer Park "XTreme Hobbies" that is very good but they do not have a track. This is my LHS and they are the ones who told me about the track in Farmingdale. They are good guys and have really good advice all the time. Their prices are pretty much on par with Tower Hobbies without the Tower discounts. They used to race pro and were sponsored by some top RC companies such as Losi to name one.

Hope that helps you out, and I hope to see you at one of them some day.
