Did I get your attention? Well this isnít a truck that Team Associated is coming out with (well you never know) but it is a truck that I built. I have always enjoyed running my RC10GT at my local tracks and am a little bummed that the class has died in my area and I donít have any trucks to race against anymore. I also enjoy racing short course trucks and had a Team Associated SC10 for a while but electric power has never done it for me like the sound and smell of nitro. After taking a look at both trucks I figured out that it wouldnít be hard to convert my old GT2 into a short course truck. I busted out the calipers and designed a few parts that would allow me to turn my GT2 into the truck you see here. Once the parts were figured out I sent the drawings over to STL Custom Hobbies and Ed made up the parts for the conversion. It looks factory and accepts the stock SC10 body. I have a few minor things to finish on this truck before I can hit the dirt. Just wanted to share it with you while itís still clean. The cool thing is that youíll be able to buy the conversion kit for your GT2 FT or RTR. Go to stlcustomhobbies.com and send them an email to find out more. Iím wrapping up the truck and it will be featured in a future issue of Radio Control Car Action.

Very, very cool. Looks like it rolled straight out of Associated's doors! If I were in the market for anything nitro, I'd jump all over something like this. Haven't purchased a bottle of fuel since going brushless/LiPo.

SOOO Sick Kevin. Now if only you worked for Team Associated. What is funny though, I converted my blue stamped chassis RC10GT to a RC10GT-E. I guess Im just another lazy brushless convert. NO tuning screwdriver to keep track of.

This conversion won't work on the GEN1 GT. Non of the parts will line up on that truck. I don't know of any conversions for that truck at this time. I would contact STL Custom Hobbies and see if they can make one for you.

Thanks for the kind words. Glad everyone likes the truck. I can't wait to drive it.

This is the first time anyone has used the words "Kevin," "fun," "work," and "With" in the same sentence.

Great work, by the way! This thing looks totally factory. Good job to you too, Kevin.

I hope this isn't thread hi-jacking, but this GT conversion is getting bigger, and I hope it keeps growing because I think we need the Gas truck class back in action....it's just too fun.....anyway, here's Greg V's SC10GT: (looks pretty close to Kevin's truck.....Both look awesome!!)















Now I just need to find a GT1 conversion, or I may have to go Ahab's route....

For those of you looking for a GT-1 SC, Talk to Thunder Tiger. They own associated and have released the GT under their name
