Thanks man. The stripe for the body didn't come out the way I wanted it to (Duratrax spray can sputtering), but it's good enough that I can live with it. I'm probably going to re-do the plasti-dipped fenders by peeling it off and getting tamiya PS-55 flat clear and spraying on the outside (fenders are already painted black on the inside).

Moving on to option parts and upgrades.

First up.... Junfac Drive Shafts and Upgraded Diff Lockers.

GS02 Hardened universal shaft set (J30035) (ebay)
GA44 Heavy duty diff locker (GM30112) (ebay)


Here are the goods




Taking care of the drive shaft first.




Drive shafts added.




Stock diff locker about to come out




What's about to go into the axles




The indentation to properly assemble the diff locker




Upgraded diff locker assembled




Upgraded diff locker in the axle




Repeated the same process for the other axle.

Some cosmetic updates for the BOM.

BOM exterior detail parts tree (Black) [GM60120] (ebay)
BOM mirror L/R [GM30128] (ebay)
BOM cage hinge (Titanium gray) [GM30137] (ebay)
Molotow Liquid Chrome Marker Set - 1mm, 2mm and 4mm


The parts I'll be adding






Never really liked chrome. Just not a fan of it.




Door handles and side mirrors added






Used Molotow liquid chrome markers to properly chrome out the light buckets



[/url]


Prepping for mounting




Here's how they look mounted






Time to put on the hinge parts








So the hinge parts for the most part is just a preference, and not really an upgrade. The stock plastic ones for all intents and purposes work just fine.

The difference is that the option hinge lets you bolt down the hinge so that it stays on the chassis when lifted.

On the other hand.. the stock plastic one allows you to easily completely remove the body from the chassis by just sliding it out of the notch, whereas the metal option hinge would require you to unscrew it from the chassis.

It's really a preference, and I opted for the mounted to chassis option.

Upgraded the wheels and tires for the BOM.

Crawler Innovations 1.9 XL Deuces Wild Single Stage foams (available on eBay)
Pro-Line 1.9 Super Swamper TSL XL G8 Tires (available on eBay)
Injora 1.9 Beadlock Wheels (available on eBay)

Testing some image hosting out, so let me know if the pictures don't work.

This is the BOM on stock tire/wheel setup.




The Injora wheels




Crawler Innovations 1.9 XL Deuces Wild foams




Pro-Line Super Swamper TSL XL 1.9 G8 Tires




These are a perfect match




All foams inserted, ready for wheels






All the wheels & tires mounted together






How it sits now.

Some parts came in the mail recently.

GS02 aluminum shock brace GM30130 (ebay) (currently unused)
GS02 stainless steel front under guard GM30150 (ebay)
GS02 cantilever sway bar GM30143 (ebay)
GMADE Aluminum 12mm Wheel Hub (4) (8mm Thick) GM30131 (ebay)
Gmade - Rear Link Kit, 324mm Wheelbase GM30133, for GS02 BOM (ebay) (currently unused)
Gmade - Rear Link Kit, 336mm Wheelbase GM30134, for GS02 BOM (ebay) (currently unused)
Gmade Cantilever Arm Set, for GS02 BOM (Titanium Gray) GMA30139 (ebay)
GMADE Komodo Roof Rack & Accessories (ebay)




Stainless front guard went on first. I bought 3 generic silver ones made for the SCX10.2, but they were on the slow boat from China , so I went ahead and ordered the Black one from Junfac in Korea that came within a week.








Next are the metal cantilever arms and the sway bar. I decided to go with the medium bar for now.










Comparison. Metal on left, plastic on right




Both installed








Time for the sway bars. Soft (green), Medium (white), Hard (red)




Sway bar on

More stuff came in the mail.

SSD Pro SCX10 II Aluminum Knuckles SSD00144 (eBay)
SSD Brass Weights (Black version) SSD00140 (eBay)





Ran into a snag with the hardware included with the brass weights.... 1 of the 4 screws was too long.




Anyway, I used a dremel to cut it down as I did not happen to have that particular size screw in my parts boxes. I was reluctant to do this, because I was worried about a bad cutting job possibly ruining the threads of the knuckles. I guess it turned out ok though.

I got the replacement skid and transmission housing a few weeks ago, and I finally got around to installing them.


Here are the replacements.








Here it is compared with the old transmission housing setup




New skid also seems to be stronger material. (New on left, Old on right)








Top half of the transmission housing (new on left, old on right)




Here's the real reason why the new setup will work. All the gears are now meshed together at the top half the transmission housing, and kept in place by that top half.






This is the old setup where these two gears were just placed in the bottom half of the transmission, and held in place by "sandwiching" the two halves of the transmission together.

That's some awesome customer service. Running changes and free parts - heck yes! It appears to be a much better design. Plastics also appear to be impregnated with more fibers.

Is that GS02 better than the scx10ii?

I saw the raw builder kits for the GS02 and its tempting for the kids

At this point, with the updated transmission housing (that I didn't have an issue with and most likely had to do with brushless power), I don't know what more can be possibly complained about. It's a nice kit, has a lot of compatiblity with SCX10 II aftermarket parts, and I'm very happy with it.

I'm considering picking up the pro chassis kit when it comes out for a second GS02.

What it really comes down to.

- Which axles do you like better
- Do you want an option for cantilever setup
- Which transmission do you want.

Everything else is pretty much a moot point since it's "similar".

I saw the Pro kit, but I'm not sure if it has any differences except for the lack of body. This is definitely a tempting truck.

Will SCX10 II ring and pinion gears fit in these GMade axles?

Not sure about the Ring & Pinion for the SCX10 II.

Differences between Pro Kit and Full Kit from what I can see in pictures.

- Metal Balls for rod ends (these were included as a bonus in first batch of full kits, but not sure if they will be going forward)
- 8mm wide locking wheel hex
- Junfac Steel CVD Drive shafts

Can't see any other visible differences in the pictures though.

On another note.... I ran the truck today.... I... Absolutely... Love... This... Truck!

Drivetrain is so quiet! Performs well as I have it right now, and I know that it's not even completely dialed in yet since it was my first run! I'm going to have a lot of fun with this one. I already know I want to switch to the hardest sway bar from the medium I used today.

I haven't tried yet, but maybe I will soon. I need to get some spare parts first, in case I screw up.
