Default Ground Pounder Purchase???

Since Axial and other manufactures have axed their Monster Jam themed vehicles, my eyes are turning to the Ground Pounder and doing a few mods to it to address its shortcomings. At its price point, this unit seems like a good base for a cool Monster Jam truck. Something that I have noticed though is that the aftermarket parts seem to have dried up. Things like axle braces and other bits are unavailable. Did this truck ever get the traction needed for companies to keep producing hop up parts for it? Does anyone know if this truck is on its way of being discontinued? I really don't want to buy it and find out that parts are obsolete.

Ground Pounder RC Monster Truck - I see it is on clearance sale. So yeah it will be discontinued soon.
It first came out back in 2009/2010. A quick search on YouTube show many Ground Pounder owners have mostly gotten rid of stock parts.

You can still buy it (if it still available somewhere) and change out stock parts for something better.

Thanks. Seems like the price is dropping on this. I think I'm going to steer away from it. Given their crappy customer service, I'm not going to expect anything better on a discontinued item. I bought their little Everest-16 crawler and I was impressed with it, at its price point. But its a crawler, not a basher. I'd be using the GP as a basher and I don't want to worry about parts support when something breaks.
