Default Gmade Sawback - old model?

I was thinking about buying a Gmade Sawback but this seem to be a very old model and the part support doesn`t seem to be even close to for example Axial SCX10.

Iīm afraid that it will be hard to find parts if I buy it and it would be a petty to have a car that you can`t buy parts for. Is Gmde still producing parts for this truck?

Nothing gets part support like an Axial SCX10 except for the TRX-4. Those trucks dominate the aftermarket.

The GMade Sawback is awesome. I love mine so much that I built a second. It's the best and most capable leaf spring rig out there IMO. It does not have a huge aftermarket support, but that's fine. GMade makes all the hop ups that you really need. And there are plenty of replacement parts from GMade since they are still making the Sawback in a couple of different varieties.

Great, thanks for the reply.

Noticed that they have them bot in RTR and KIT. I assume that you get better parts in the KIT version just like you do for other brands or what is the difference and which one should I go for?

If the parts are better in the KIT version then it is better to buy the electronics separately

I have Sawback. It has been really good. I changed the shocks on mine. Used rc4wd bilstienís. Bolted right on. Some of the parts for Axial can be fitted like the sliders. I donít use mine as competitive rig. I use mine as fun toy for playing around the yard and chasing the 4 1/2 grand daughter. Iíve seen heavy duty drive shafts on the market. There is support but nothing like Axial.

I don't think the kit has better components than the RTR Sawback, but you'd have to verify that.

The kit has the same parts as the ARTR and RTR.

I wanted a kit as building is one of the best parts - but I was able to get an ARTR for a better price several years ago and went for that instead. I would go for whatever is cheapest as you are likely to replace at least some of the electronics. IMO it needs a 27t motor in order to have enough wheel speed. I have a WP1060 with Castle BEC, but I know most people prefer the WP1080.
