Nitro stadium truck making a comeback???
Nitro stadium trucks, often referred to as gas truck, was a major class before truggies took over the nitro scene. With a resurgence of more 10th scale friendly tracks, gas truck is making a comeback. The only problem is....was....no current platform, until now.
This conversion chassis turns the great Team Associated T5M into a nitro stadium truck (that we call the GT5). This conversion uses all of the T5M front suspension and steering, all of the rear suspension and some parts from the older GT2 and GT to make the GT5. This truck has the durability of today's modern trucks, along with big bore shocks, all metric hardware and 12mm wheels. The chassis is made of 6061 aluminum, is laser cut, hard anodized black and then the motor slots are counterbored. The resulting chassis is very nice looking.
Price for the chassis and brace is $65 shipped.
For more information on this chassis, please contact Casey Wright by visiting the FB group "GT5 gas truck conversion" www.facebook.com/groups/1174608872660751/
Attached are some pictures of Team Associated driver Adam Rayls' GT5 ready to tear up the track.
