Does the GT4 come with a front bumper? On the pictures the body posts are mounted to the front of the chassie but on Josh's car from the nats he had a bumper on the car to move the body mounts forward and provide some protection.

Any answer would be appreciated, just trying to figure out what I need to order.

WGT4 does not included the carbon bumper
It is the same as WGT3 part

Hi,
just wondering about a starting setup compared to what I am used to.
one thing I notice is the front end width is 199-200 with jaco wheels(room for 0.5 mm shim) and just over 200mm with bsr (no room for any shim).

what front/rear track width is suggested? I have been running at 195mm front and 200mm rear. do I want to maintain the delta so 200mm front and 205mm rear?

I used to run 200 Fr, 203 Rr, but I wouldn't over think it
WGT's aren't usually that sensitive to a mm one way or the other

Ran my WGT4 this weekend and after some tweaking the car was really good! Figured I would post my setup for anyone looking for something to try.

Front
.18 AE front springs
Green lube on the kingpins
2deg caster
.75deg camber
1mm toe out
4.25mm ride height
51mm tires

Rear
Old CRC black center spring (1800g @80%)
.22 SM side springs
Green lube in the tubes with the outer ballstud spaced up 1mm
1.25mm pod droop
.25mm pod sag
51mm tires

One thing that is noteworthy, the really heavy spring really transformed the car. I was previously running a AE red which is about 1450g @ 80% and when going to the black the car got a tremendous amount better. It was improved all around and is a worthwhile tuning option for anyone running the WGT4

Any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks.

I got myself a gt4, now for electronics install some pictures I've seen have the esc all the way back then the battery or battery to the rear esc in front. Is there a "correct" way? My track tends to be loose because of the new crappy runs of crc carpet. Any help is appreciated
