The car is basically a V-One-R/Reflex with a new aluminum chassis and laydown steering servo mounting. If you look at the suspension components, they are exactly the same as the Reflex. I suppose the same manufacturer that makes the suspension components for the Reflex makes it for this car.

I, in a way, am very pleased to see this. Most, or nearly all, of my Reflex hop-ups (floating rear body mount, composite suspension parts, Kawhara Negative Diff, etc) will most likely fit. This will save alot of money.

This car offers IMHO the best of both worlds. It offers the laydown servo mounting of the MTX-3 with the centered fuel-tank mounting of the Reflex/V-One-R.

Here is a bottom chassis pic. I would have liked the receiver pack to be mounted directly under the fuel tank but this in a way would ultimately raise CG.



So far it looks great. If it is anything like other Team Magic parts and accessories the quality would be great as well.

Smile More than a copy

It's definetely more than a V-One or Trinity (i had this car in my hands yesterday). There are some nice and handy concepts engineered in this car. Like replacement of diff with 4 screws. And its CG is definitely lower.

Certainly in combination with the K-Factory hopups this will be nice. And i heard they ship this car with a Protoform Stratus 2.1 body....

There will be two editions of the G4 car. The most luxury version has options to make it competion-ready out-of-the-box. Both editions have GRP tires and a Dodget Stratus body in the box.

The retailprice will be lower than other 200mm cars.
