Default Any 1.9 U4 Gatekeepers built up yet?

Any guys running U4 1.9 solid with the Element Gatekeeper? I have no Element experience but seems like it would be a solid 1.9 racer after being lowered a bit.

There hasn't been one at a U4RC yet but would probably stay away from it. The axles are a bit not beefy and some people are even converting a SCX10.1 axles under it. Also, VP stated they are also not making parts for it because some of the design decisions. The axle pinion uses a small 5x10mm bearing compared to the 5.13 you see in the scx10.2/.3.



On a side note, the 5x10 is a huge issue, the VP AR60 V2 axles use a 5x15 bearing, love the big size. I was going through a lot of 5x10 bearings on the pinon gear bearing in my yeti and bomber.
