i'm not so sure about gpm and golden horison having the same parts... for my sagave i bought alloy bulkheads and the desing of the gpm's is totaly different from the gpm one... same with the tvps... not to mention the gh stuff is usually 7075... the gpm parts i have for my savage don't even fit properly... the tranny case i bought needs a ton of shims for the diffs to sit proberly and the two halves that are supposed to be the same are different... i bought a complete set of front and rear and all four peices looked totaly different... gpm=junk from what i've seen...

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....

GPM seems to make very poor hop ups, sometimes the freaking parts don't even fit! I also have been hearing bad news about integy, but don't have experience with them. Anyone care to share integy experiences? I guess only buy parts that are CNC'ed instead of cast...

I'm just a new member driving losi LST, My experience with Integy not very good, price is very expensive and quality is just ok, performance cheap. I was trying to make the LST jump from three feet jump landed backwards my integy shock tower was bended. I put the stock shock back run again flip landed backwards again nothing happen, try to run again flip again twice nothing was broken and finally perfected the flip thank you stock shock tower...
