    It is not a good idea. the geometry on your gt isn't set up for DH and the fork doesn't have alot of travel. its also a hard tail and not built for the conditions of DH. its not made for drops or hard landing. i wouldn't recomend you putting big travel forks on it either. this wouldchange the geometry and is a good way to snap your frame.

    Longer travel helps a lot with speed. Longer travel front shocks will help a lot.
