Don't let the fact that a part is CNC'd fool you! GPM's stuff is CNC and it's still crap! The bad thing is that I BELIEVE they make parts for many other companies now... including Integy (based on stuff I was reading last night) maybe not ALL integy parts but some at least...

I think Chewy is on the right track with the problem being in the material... even is somethign is 6065 ot 7075 aluminum that doesn't mean it is strong... There is 6065-T6 and 6065-T211 (more as well) and the difference between the two is HUGE! The T6 is like 3 times stronger than the T211... I'm not goign to get into all the differences in metals right now but if you are unsure try looking some up online and see what you find... heck there is even some 7075 that is weaker than 6 series...

Poy [Mark] - HPI Electric Mini RS4 w/2spd and Novak SS4300
Tokzynus [Matt] - Ofna LX Comp - Force .26 [turned truggy, FG Marder wannabe' ]
BigWilly563 [Will] - TC4 w/19T Reedy

AnthonyXP [Anthony] - Losi Mini LST | Tamiya TB IV
On my mind -
Drifting, nothing but sideways action! Come get some!

The Grandmaster has some of the finest Aluminum ever seen on earth

My KANAI is outfitted FIORONI OPTION parts
F/R Knuckles
electronics plates
F/R chassis braces
suspension plate

FIORONI costs $$ but is well worth it. Unfortunatly their products are limited to high end buggies and the GS Storm SUT.

I have just recently purchased MIP CVD's for my TNX Grandmaster Edition. They look solid and I am sure will perform as such, considering MIP's track record.

The Grandmaster only uses Performance Hop-ups.....NO BLING

Save Your Money

There are some hop ups that are good,(bulkheads,shock bodies,diff housing,...ummm did I say bulkheads )the rest of the stuff is pretty much BLING,extra weight,junk as far as I'm concerned.RPM makes good plastic upgrades for the Revo,Tmaxx ,LST and some 10th scale vehicles.As for the Savage the only alu part thats nessesary for extreme bashing is the front bulkhead and diff housings.

The Grand Master Chewy says
spend your money on Electronics(spectrum,high torque an fast servo's,and batterypack's)

GMP makes ALL dynamites red parts

golden horizon and GPM used to be one but the 2 partners split, but still same part difrent name

I have a tricked out savage all GPM and I have had no problems, with durability
I also have a tricked out RS4 SS with all GMP parts and have had no problems even when I took a head on crash with a curb, and the chassis is still perfectly flat....
