I don't have the Serpent Centax yet (it's on the way), but the pinions are spaced like the gears on the 2 speed, so my initial answer would be no, you can't use it with the stock 2 speed. If there is a way to space the pinions closer, then you might be able to use it. If you're going that far with the clutch, I would just spend a few extra bucks and get the tranny as well.

the serpent centax clutch and 2 speed and trany is a little mor than i was thinking right now. but just out of woundering, will the mugen centax clutch work with the gt4 without having to change the 2 speed trany and such? just woundering. it has been about 6 years since i had a nitro touring car. thanks for the help.

Yes, the Mugen Centax works well with the stock 2 speed. It can't be used with the Serpent transmission as Billy stated.

The GT4 has direct link steering with a servo saver. Generally, if its direct link, you'll want to go metal geared since its easier to damage the servo in crashes.

Go for a high speed servo with something faster than .15 and over 50 ounces of torque at 6V should be sufficient. I use a Futaba 9402 for steering. A bit overkill in the torque department but I like it a lot.

I just got a great deal on two Futaba S9450s, so I have a pair of S9402s that I would be willing to sell. They were only used a couple of times, and they are in brand new condition. 0.09 seconds (60 degrees) and 111 oz/in at 6V. More specs are at:

Let me know if you're interested in one or both of them.

Does anyone know how much longer the new shock bodies are? I have a set of new V-One R shocks that I want to put on the car but they are a few milimeters longer. I know it's blasphemous to put Kyosho shocks on my GT4 but they just work so smoothly.

The RB and Nova pipe are the same. I think the RB in general sells for less. I have the Yokomo pipe which looks exactly like the other 2 with the exception that it is a bit shorter. Any of the 3 are gonna work well with the MT12.

Here are a few item numbers on Novarossi pipes, hope it helps!

51601: high speed pipe
51602: high torque pipe
51603: in between the above 2
50220: Now this one is the good shxt, in fact I was told this is for .15 size engine, but from the way it looks, on the mid section is a little bit smaller in diameter than 51603 but the end towards the tip is tapered in. I got one for myself and I am going to try it out may be next week!
