When you've been in the hobby for awhile you start to collect a mass of spare
parts. There came a point where Special Ed had so many spare parts for Devo that
he could almost make a second Evader from them. So...with the addition of a few
missing things, Gitis was born from those parts which, for the most part, came off
of Devo when things got upgraded.
Gitis is going to be the off-road Evader whereas Devo will be the street
'vader. Gitis is running a Trinity Cobalt 2 16T motor and has the
original Intellispeed 12T ESC that came out of Devo when he got upgraded to the
LRP. Gitis is pretty much your stock Evader ST...non-Pro model. Eventually
he'll get upgraded too. Then maybe another baby Evader will be born.
FYI...the name "Gitis" is short for "Meningitis," the friggin' illness Special Ed was
sidelined with when he spent all of the time building Gitis. If he hadn't been bored,
Special Ed would probably never have built this truck. At least something good
came from being sick.
Gitis had motor and ESC transplants. The donor vehicle was Shlimp (who now has a
Velociti 6.5R motor and GTB ESC). Gitis is now sporting the SS4300 brushless system
that we had been running in Shlimp. He is obviously not as fast as Shlimp is now
but he's still faster than he was. Plus we now have a lot less maintenance to
deal with where the motor is concerned.
Gitis has been sold to Dageek so he can be turned into a winter driving maniac. His name will
change as he will no longer be the same truck. Keep your eyes on the website for
Here are Gitis' details and some pics....
