Default Does anyone know about the GV Dominator????

Hi,
I am looking at a GV Dominator by GV-Hobbies (http://www.gv-hobby.com.tw).
I believe it is similar or an update from the XT2...

However, I havent seen much on various forums and websites....

Has anyone had any experiences with this car??? I've only read one post on this RCUniverse...
Is there not much info out there because it is a new-ish model??? Concerns with spare parts?? (My local hobby store stocks it and according to them, also stocks spares)...

This is will be my first nitro car and I'm sure I will have other questions later... (Like what is a good % of nitro to run in RC Cars???)

I've gone from RC Gliders, Electric Assist Gliders, EPP Combat Wings, Electric Heli and now Nitro Car...
After this I will just have to tackle the water!!!!

Thanks

Adrian

I couldn't find the Dominator on the Web site you give.............If it has anything to do with the XT2 I would say check with Ripmax in your country to get an idea of whats up [:-]

Thanks for the reply...

I think I did have the same problem (but I was just quoting the website off the manual that I manage to find and download)...

Here are a couple of websites that have more information on the Dominator:

http://www.modelengines.com.au/view/...DOMINATOR.html

and the manual:

Thanks

Thats not matching up to an XT2 but it looks like it would be a good basher...........all that metal will help it hold up a bit. Do some more research on your side of the world M8. I don't have a clue but it looks good and if your LHS stocks parts then it would be a go for me

It is pretty much a XT2 with anodized shock towers, a force .25 and new body.
If you can get an XT2 Pro over the Dominator as it has the carbon servo tray and comes with a range of dampener oils and springs.
Both are fine for bashing, but not a racer.
