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,
