Question for all RC10GT owners

    I have a question for anyone who has built an RC10GT.  If I were to
buy one with an O.S. .12 CV-X or .12 CV would I still need to buy a
muffler/tuned pipe?

Some people see the glass as half full.  Others see it as half empty.  I
just see the glass as too big.

Hi James,
    Actually the GT is pretty competitive right out of the box, just
stay away from the Sport model and you're heading in the right
direction.  None of the Associated top guns use hop up pipes, Lett,
Dvorak, Saxton... all use the stock pipe and header, I guess it can't be
all that bad.  These guys all use ported CZZ's though.  If I were you I
would use the stock pipe at first, if you still would like to
experiment... go for it!  I've had my RC10-GT for over three years and
now use an MIP Stinger.  Honestly I really do not notice much of a
performance difference, the major differnece is now the exhaust and oil
do not slobber all over the side of my truck... that's the only
differnece I can detect with my Dynamite TNT .12.
    I would say the only "must have" hop up is the MIP 4-in-1 clutch.
The Associated springless clutch really sucks since it can never be
fully disengaged, and to adjust it you need to cut it with an exacto
knife.  If you***up and accidently cut off too much, the clutch
shoes cost around $6 a pair, this can get expensive.  At $11 the MIP
4-in-1 is well worth the money.

Just some oppinions... have fun James,
Garrett

Dude you don't need any other pipe than the one that comes in the kit box.
 I have a Three year old RC10GT with a OS CZ-Z.  It is kit stock and it is
still a real handfull at times.  The Mip cultch can help.  When the next
rebuild (piston sleve and rod) comes I may look at the 10E carb form the
CV.  It will work as a retro fit, and is rumored to be a better carb than
the one that came with the CZ-Z.  You may want to get a pressure tap and
lock it into the factory pipes hole (the one for the pressure tubing!)
with some JB weld.  It isn't necessary but I think it holds the pressure
line better this way.
